Exclusive ExpressWay technology provides automatic optimisation for the maximum dual-band throughput.
Faster Wi-Fi that Goes Further
The RP-AC66 wireless repeater has two powerful external MIMO antennas that help to eliminate signal dead zones and improve the coverage of any existing wireless router. It works as a repeater, which means it can extend wireless networking to every corner of the home — even to those difficult, hard-to-reach spots. With blindingly-fast 802.11ac speeds up to 1750 Mbps, it’s ideal for extending your existing 802.11ac Wi-Fi network. This ensures reliable high-speed internet coverage everywhere for devices such as notebooks, tablets, smartphones, game consoles and smart TVs.
Experience ultra-fast wireless speeds
Powered by the new 802.11ac chipset, RP-AC66 delivers ultra-fast wireless-AC speeds up to 1300 Mbps on the 5 GHz band and 450 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz band. This high-performance Wi-Fi lets you enjoy ultra-smooth online gaming, snappier web surfing and other bandwidth-hungry tasks without a wired connection.
Extra-long-range external antennas
Much longer range and stronger transmissions make RP-AC66 perfect for larger homes and offices, delivered by the two external antennas and an enhanced power amplifier. As well as improved coverage, you get all the speed benefits of fast 802.11ac Wi-Fi.
One-press setup and worry-free connectivity
Instaling your RP-AC66 wireless repeater doesn’t requiremessing with discs, or even a mouse and keyboard. Simply press the WPS button and setup is complete. Optimized performance is assured for a seamless and smooth internet experience. For advanced settings, you can connect RP-AC66 to a PC via an Ethernet cable and access the web-based configuration menu directly, with no disc or app needed. You can even set it up wirelessly from a tablet or smartphone.
Find the best location for RP-AC66 with the signal indicator
For best results, RP-AC66 needs to be within range of a stable router signal, and should be placed between the router and the location where you need better wireless coverage. RP-AC66 works best when it is receiving a strong wireless signal from the router — you can check this by using the signal strength indicator on the front panel.
Super-convenient rotating mains plug
With the ingenious rotating mains plug, RP-AC66 can be positioned upright for optimum performance no matter what the orientation of the power socket.
3-in-1 repeater, access point and media bridge modes
RP-AC66 has two more convenient modes to make it even more flexible. As well as a repeater, it can also work as a wireless access point (AP) or as a media bridge. In AP mode, it’ll connect to any wired LAN — for example, a hotel’s internet connection — to create a personal Wi-Fi hotspot, allowing the internet connection to be accessed from laptops, phones or other Wi-Fi devices. In media bridge mode, connect it to any Ethernet-compatible device — such as a smart TV, multimedia player, game console or PC — to add instant Wi-Fi connectivity. A great way to reduce cable mess.
ASUS ExpressWay boosts performance
ASUS ExpressWay uses the dual-band capability of RP-AC66 to create a super-efficient connection with improved performance and reliability. In normal mode, RP-AC66 uses the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands simultaneously for connecting to devices, giving the widest compatibility with devices and routers. As long as at least one device — or your router — supports 5 GHz operation, ExpressWay can dedicate one band for connecting to the router and the other band for connecting to the device. This gives you a great performance boost for data-intensive tasks such as HD video streaming or online gaming, and also reduces the chance of losing the connection due to interference.
Roaming Assist for stable connections, everywhere
With our hassle-free Roaming Assist technology, you never have to switch connections manually between RP-AC66 and your ASUS router as you move around the home. Once you enable this function, your device will connect automatically to the strongest Wi-Fi signal, whether it’s from the router or the repeater. This ensures that you always get the most reliable connection wherever you are in the house.
Keep Up to Date
Remember to always keep your device’s firmware up to date so you can benefit from the very latest service and security enhancements — and get exciting new features.

I use this in access point mode. I have tried it as an extender and it seemed to work fine, but extending my network was not really top priority, i just wanted something which could better handle capacity so i've not heavily tested it in those modes. There are 4 ethernet ports on the back.
The interface looks like all other Asus network device interfaces, except with a lot of the useful functionality stripped out which is a bit annoying - it's not a cheap device and so it'd be nice to have that functionality there. Clearly ASUS have designed this for a specific purpose and only included capability for that.
If you're used to ASUS routers then you'll find this one a bit of a pain to administer, it is forever changing its IP address and the interface is often slow. I think ASUS intend people to set it up once and then never touch it again.
Initial setup directs you to input your new admin password and the passwords for the WiFi networks you want to extend over an unencrypted channel on an unsecured wireless network, so it's probably best to just enter some random data and change it later when you've enabled https and/or connected by cable
Now connected, I find the range and power of this repeater is very poor, and at the far end of my house, my downstairs router gives me 2 bar signal, yet this repeater that's a lot closer to where am standing only gives me 1 bar! Hence making it a complete waste of time.
I also find it's very unreliable at broadcasting a 5ghz network, and flicks on and off a lot, while the 2.4ghz network seems to be more stable.
Also, it runs very hot!
If I hadn't destroyed the packaging, I would be sending it back.
For those people who intended it as a dual-band Wi-Fi access point (also confusingly called a wireless extender or signal booster) please be aware, however, it is not! The Amazon "dual-band " description is false, since this is a 5 GHz device only. As noted, it is probably the best available for 5 GHz media bridge or access point use currently but unsuitable for 802.11 b/g/n devices (which includes most Wi-Fi printers and some mobile phones) which operate on the 2.4 GHz band only.
Incidentally, contrary to popular belief (so it seems) media bridge mode does not boost your Wi-Fi signal strength. It relies on an existing signal from the router source.
It's also very simple to set up all you need to do is to download the Asus extender app and set it up and bingo its done.
