Product Overview The Edimax EW-7478AC is an 11ac high-speed smart Wi-Fi extender with built-in power adapter and a compact design which plugs directly into an electrical outlet. Double the signal coverage of your Wi-Fi network for better Wi-Fi quality around your home. With smart iQ Setup, installation is quick and easy and the EW-7478AC features three operating modes: Wi-Fi extender, access point or Wi-Fi bridge. Use whichever mode you need for your network. Additionally, the extender complies with IEEE 802.11ac and IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless standards, for concurrent dual-band wireless speeds up to 1200Mbps (300Mpbs on 2.4GHz + 867Mbps on 5GHz). With the Edimax EW-7478AC you can enjoy high-speed wireless networking throughout your home without additional cabling. And the EW-7478AC works together with the free EdiRange smartphone app to provide local Wi-Fi environment analytics as well as Wi-Fi scheduling functions and guest network management.

11ac Super High-Speed Dual-Band Wi-Fi
Offers the latest 11ac Wi-Fi technology with high-speed capacity up to 1200Mbps (N300 + AC867Mbps) and extends both 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless connections at the same time.

Eliminate Dead Zones & Double Wi-Fi Coverage
Extend Wi-Fi coverage to dead zones which your existing Wi-Fi signal can’t reach. Plug the extender directly into an electrical outlet and double the signal coverage of your Wi-Fi network for better Wi-Fi quality across different rooms or multiple floors in your home.

Smart 3-in-1 Extender, Access Point and Wi-Fi Bridge
The EW-7478AC can work as Wi-Fi extender, access point or Wi-Fi bridge. Just configure the mode you need for your network environment using the smart iQ Setup wizard and enjoy surfing the web.

Smart iQ Setup
Features user-friendly browser-based iQ Setup for smart, automatic and quick installation. iQ Setup automatically detects the available Wi-Fi networks nearby and helps you establish a connection in a few seconds.

Smart App Control & Analytics
The extender works together with the free EdiRange smartphone app which displays your local Wi-Fi environment and provides easy-to-understand analytics. Plus you can manage the extender’s wireless network and functions such as scheduling and guest network.

Universal Compatibility, Works With Any Wireless Router

Detachable Antenna

Green Wi-Fi Power Switch
Featuring a new hardware switch to adjust between normal and green Wi-Fi transmit power (the strength of the Wi-Fi signal) or switch off the power with one click. If you only need Wi-Fi in a smaller house, you can switch to green mode to reduce transmit power by 75% and conserve energy.

Cross-Band Technology for Maximum Speed
Edimax cross-band technology uses both frequency bands together to maintain your router’s maximum speed capacity through your extender and to your Wi-Fi device. Data is transmitted on one band and received on the other band, meaning no speed loss at your extender and a faster network with better performance. Perfect for high-speed applications such as HD video streaming or online gaming.

Smart Signal-Strength Indicator
Designed with a signal strength LED which lets you see the Wi-Fi signal strength received from the router* and guides you to find the best setup location.
*Extender or Wi-Fi bridge mode only.

Wi-Fi Scheduling
Program intelligent schedules to manage Wi-Fi availability and power usage according to your home’s routine.
