New FRITZ!WLAN Repeater 1160: Fast wireless LAN for all mobile devices in the home network

  • Simple setup and maximum security at the touch of a button
  • Dual wireless in the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands for all notebooks, smartphones, tablets
  • Intelligent band selection for especially fast data transmission

With the FRITZ!WLAN Repeater 1160 AVM expands its portfolio to offer a dual-band repeater for ultra-fast Wireless AC + N. The new FRITZ!WLAN Repeater 1160 is a great solution to extend the range of an existing wireless LAN. At the touch of a button you can register the slim FRITZ!WLAN Repeater 1160 on a FRITZ!Box or a wireless router and expand your WiFi range in no time. The new FRITZ!WLAN Repeater transmits on both frequency bands (2.4 and 5 GHz) concurrently, supports two separate data streams per band and works with all common wireless LAN standards (11ac/n/g/b/a). With speeds of up to 866 Mbit/s in the 5 GHz band and up to 300 Mbit/s in 2.4 GHz, the repeater is perfect for fast, stable streaming – even with multiple PCs, tablets and smartphones running at the same time. Thanks to crossband repeating, the FRITZ!WLAN Repeater automatically chooses the best and fastest connection for all devices in the wireless home network. Using WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) and the five-level LED display that indicates the WiFi reception quality, it is easy to locate the place where the repeater achieves maximum performance. In addition, WPA2 provides for the highest wireless LAN security. No matter whether it's hibernating or in operation, the dual-band wireless repeater is extremely energy efficient. All FRITZ!WLAN repeaters receive regular free updates, so users benefit from new and extended features even after purchase. The FRITZ!WLAN Repeater 1160 is on sale now for 69 euros (RRP).
