With the latest MU-MIMO technology and a host of other features the RG21S offers enormous improvements in Wi-Fi speed, quality and reliability. Featuring AC2600 high speed Wi-Fi and MU-MIMO technology for simultaneous connections to multiple devices, as well as smart-roaming support – the Gemini RG21S brings better performance, lower latency and super dependable high-speed Wi-Fi for your movies and games.

It’s an ultra-fast 802.11ac Wi-Fi router with dual-band data rates of 1733Mbps at 5GHz and 800Mbps at 2.4GHz perfect for smooth 4K streaming and lightning fast file transfers. MU-MIMO (Multiple User - Multiple Input Multiple Output) technology serves multiple devices simultaneously and is ideal for busy networks, providing better efficiency and less buffering. And with Edimax add-on roaming devices, the RG21S’s smart roaming function automatically detects and switches your device to the best available Wi-Fi signal – for a seamless Wi-Fi experience as you move around your home.

AC2600 Super High-Speed Wi-Fi
Next generation Wi-Fi router with 802.11a/b/g/n/ac standards and speeds of up to 800Mbps at 2.4GHz and 1733Mbps at 5GHz. Upgrade your home Wi-Fi to super high-speed 802.11ac and enjoy faster video streaming, online gaming and data transfers.

Multi-Device Efficiency
MU-MIMO (Multiple User - Multiple Input Multiple Output) technology serves multiple devices simultaneously instead of one at a time, for better performance and efficiency on networks with multiple devices. Four streams with blistering 11ac Wave 2.

Smarter Wi-Fi Roaming
A seamless connection while you move around your home without hassle of switching SSIDs (network name). Your extender and router use the same SSID for seamless roaming* that automatically switches your Wi-Fi device to the best signal. (*Use with an Edimax Gemini RE11S add-on extender for always-connected Wi-Fi.)

Log in to your work/school network remotely or avoid geoblocking, protect privacy on public Wi-Fi and bypass Internet censorship.

Home Users: Avoid regional restrictions and access geoblocked content such as Netflix or iPlayer from anywhere. Ensure your privacy and anonymity online and defeat censorship and other location-based content restrictions. You can also remotely access your home network when you’re away, and use your encrypted VPN for security when out and about using potentially unsafe public Wi-Fi hotspots.
