Maybe someone could clarify this for me.

I've never used an extender before so I'm wondering if I install this in bedroom with cat5 to gigabit switch does it create new wireless SSIDs or clone signal of existing to provide uninterrupted coverage?

If wired to a network where router supports N 2.4ghz and 5ghz is it possible for devices to connect to this using AC standard?

If you are able to connect a cable already, just buy an access point or buy a router which can be set to access point mode. Extenders do not copy the SSID as far as I'm aware. (I bought one and took it back). The speed won't be that great as its using existing bandwidth to extend.

Was only seeing this as a cheap way of possibly connecting using 802.11ac as not quite ready to upgrade my RT-N66U.

Dont really need extra range and all devices except phones and tabs are wired.

On thinking about it the money would be better put towards an RT-ac66u. Will see whats around in jan sales.

Not sure why you want a cable

just plug it in, go to Web admit page and assign a separate ssid for each band. so if you have a dual band router you'll have 4 ssid in your house, 2 for each band

Only reason I thought in using cat5 was so not to be restricted by 802.11N speeds from router to this device.
That was assuming I could then connect using 802.11ac.

In hindsight it's a terrible idea and will just pick up an ac router after Xmas.

If you can run a cable, do so. Just buy another router, run a cable to it, set it to access point only/turn off NAT on it, give it the same SSID/password as your main router, and job done.

Every time you repeat the signal, you double the latency and halve the bandwidth.

This will work as an access point also, so yes - if you connect this via Ethernet to your network you can set it up as an ac AP.
It can be setup as an extender, client bridge, or standalone AP.

Not a terrible idea at all - only would've been if you were thinking of setting it up as a wireless repeater on your current n network and thought it would work as ac.

Bought this last time or was on offer. easy set up and does the job of giving me wifi at the other end of my house. Heat for a decent product.
#14
I don't have this particular product but mine (huawai) can be configured with same id and password and can roam automatically between the two. See no reason why this would be different. But these thing really work for me (foil insulated walls kill the regular signal) so definitely recommend these type of devices.

Bought today, seems to be working well...cheers! :)
