Simultaneous Dual-Band 11n Speed
Edimax EW-7238RPD is a Concurrent Dual-Band Universal Wi-Fi Extender, complies with wireless IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n standards, providing concurrent dual-band wireless speeds up to 300Mbps (2.4GHz + 5GHz).
Extend your 5Ghz Wi-Fi Coverage for Continuous, Stable Video Streaming for your Mobile Device
When many Wi-Fi devices are operating under the same wireless channel including your neighbor’s 2.4GHz Wi-Fi, each device will be queued, which will affect and interfere with your wireless speed so videos will lag. The 5GHz frequency band is significantly less crowded than 2.4GHz, meaning less interference, less lag and more stable, robust Wi-Fi.
The EW-7238RPD can extend your existing 5GHz network to dead zones and let your dual-band smartphone or tablet such as iPad, iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S Series smartphones, RIM Blackberry Playbooks or Motorola Xooms to name a few, enjoy stable video streaming. Enjoy fast network speeds for streaming intensive media such as HD video or music, for entertainment or gaming.
The Edimax EW-7238RPD is compatible with all single or dual-band routers and access points–so you can use an EW-7238RPD to extend the coverage of any network, without worrying about compatibility.
Quick and Easy Installation
A WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) button allows the EW-7238RPD to join an existing wireless networking at the simple push of a button.
Featuring iQ Setup – Edimax’s intelligent, automated setup wizard. iQ Setup automatically detects available Wi-Fi networks and helps you establish a connection and extend your Wi-Fi in just a few seconds.
WPA/WPA2 Advanced Wireless Encryption
Supports WEP 64/128 bit, WPA and WPA2 standards of wireless encryption.
Signal Strength LED Indicator
Designed with a signal strength LED, which helps you find the best setup location for optimal Wi-Fi coverage.
Green and Energy-Saving
Features a convenient power switch, enabling you to switch off the EW-7238RPD when it’s not in use. Similarly, LED’s can be disabled from the extender’s web control panel, saving power or avoiding light disturbances at night. This device also includes IEEE802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) which regulates the amount of power supplied to an Ethernet data link based on its usage – further reducing power consumption.
Compact, Wall Plug Design

After several months using this, the shortcomings are becoming abundantly clear. For no reason at all, it just keeps dropping its own signal, so nothing can keep a stable connection to it. I've tested it with our smart tv, which sits around 8ft away from it, a wdtv box, which is beside the tv and has very sensitive wifi so should latch on to it very easily, bluray player, also beside the tv, and several smartphones, tablets and laptops. The same thing happens with all of them.
I've tried resetting it (cold reboot), factory resetting it, and rebooting our wireless router (14ft or so from it as the crow flies, through a solid wall. Hence its raison d'etre.), all with little or no effect. Its a real pity as when it does work properly I can stream full 1080p video files with dolby digital or dts surround sound, with no buffering issues.
As a result of all these woes, I think I'll just buy a couple of powerline adapters instead.
Update. I had to reinstall this item and did something which meant that I couldn't. I replaced it with a Netgear range extender which is excellent and very, very easy to set up compared with the Edimax. However,not giving up, I managed to get the Edimax back up. There is no doubt the setting up is a trial at times but, getting to the point, when set up properly I found that it provides a considerably stronger signal than the Netgear.
Plugged it in in our conservatory where we get an excellent signal from the main router. Followed the online setup and 5 mins later I was browsing away to my hearts content in the garden.
An added bonus is that it provides you with an ethernet port so could effectively use it to run a set-top box or sky box at the same time,
A fantastic bit of kit!
