Expand your WiFi coverage throughout your home or workplace!
This wireless AC1200 router functions as either an Access Point, Repeater or Router modes. What this means for your is three easy ways to extend the operating range of your WiFi network. This dueal-mode AC router can operate in either Wired or Wireless modes, relaying 2.4GHz networks at speeds up to 300Mbps, and 5GHz networks up to 867Mbps, for a total of circa 1200Mbps across both bands with compatible equipment.
Most setups can be configured with a press of a button on the Pix-Link AC1200 router, followed by the WPS configuration button on your modem. Super fast and super easy! For more complex or manual configurations, instructions are included for setting the Pix-Link AC1200 into the various operating modes.
Ideal placement for Repeater mode
When using the Pix-Link AC1200 in REPEATER mode, you have the flexibility of a complete wireless connection, however placement of your repeater is crucial for maximum benefits. The signal strength indicator on the repeater will help you to identify how strong the wireless signal is as you change from location to location. Choose an ideal location when using in wireless repeater mode by placing the Pix-Link AC1200 where it still receives a strong signal from your wireless network. From there, it has an optimal signal to boost and send along to your other devices located further away.
Plug in and go!
Once you've found the ideal location to place the Pix-Link AC1200 in either a wired or wireless setup, simply plug it into a AC wall power socket to keep the device powered at all times. Way to easy!

Product Review by Mick,
I've had this router for about 2 weeks, and I'm very disappointed.
My intention was to use the device, as a smaller replacement for my ageing Airport Express... the Airport Express is large and bulky, and requires 240v power at all times. So the attraction of this tiny device, powered by USB - seemed just what was needed when travelling to hotels, or being out and about on public networks. Lightweight and USB powered. So it's a 'pass' on both of these benefits.
This device fails on several other fronts however...
I didn't realize, this device does NOT 'remember' previous networks joined. It's 'dumb'... so every time you switch networks, you'll need to hook it up to your computer with both USB and Ethernet cables, then log on to the device's home page, and run through the configuration process
which involves naming your network, searching for available networks, logging on to that available network with their password, and then creating a password for you 'new' network, before finally rebooting the device... it's really, really cumbersome and time intensive. Not to mention, you really need to have your I.T. wits about you if anything goes wrong. This device is definitely not for the 'plug & play' mindset and requires some knowledge of IP addresses and network devices.
I couldn't get this device to work as described on my local cafe network. It did however work flawlessly at home... but I already have a working router at home. So it's completely redundant. You need to be aware, there's a big chance, this unit will not work on some 'public' or hotel wireless networks. I've contacted Cable Chick who have been helpful and referred me to the manufacturer, but the pdf manuals, and paperwork supplied with the unit, come from a non English country, so you get instructions like they were written by IKEA. As yet, I haven't got an explanation as to why this device doesn't work on some networks... I'm aware that there is a setting in routers, that prevents interaction between devices on that network. But I can't say for sure, why it doesn't work on some public networks.
I would not recommend this product as a suitable Wi-Fi travel adaptor. It has become a $50 paperweight for me.
