Linksys is offering its refurbished 802.11ac Dual-Band Wi-Fi Range Extender for $24.99 shipped. That takes over $100 off the MSRP, it’s $55 under Amazon’s current price for a new one, and the best we can find for it. Rated 3.7/5 stars by nearly 1,000 Amazon shoppers.

Linksys AC1200 Wi-Fi Range Extender Features:

  • Spot Finder Technology to show where to place the range extender using a mobile device for optimum performance and a quick, easy setup
  • Expands wireless coverage area up to 10,000 square feet
  • Speed of up to N300 + AC867 Mbps
  • Cross band Technology maximizes simultaneous use of both bands
  • Beam forming focuses and strengthens the Wi-Fi signal
  • Wirelessly stream music anywhere in your home using a smart device with the Wi-Fi Audio feature
  • Pass-through functionality allows you to maintain use of the wall outlet
  • 90-day warranty

Using Spot Finder Technology on your laptop, tablet, or smartphone, you can quickly determine optimal placement of the extender in relation to your router. The AC1200 AMPLIFY will then repeat the signal from your router and redistribute it to reduce wireless dead spots with a combination of Crossband and Beamforming technologies.

Not only does Wireless-AC performance allow you to stream videos and play online games without interruption, you can even stream audio from your smartphone using the extender’s audio jack. The addition of a convenient pass-through power outlet allows you to keep your power outlets free for use.
