Amped Wireless Extends Dual Band Wi-Fi to 10,000 sq ft with a Tap of a Finger

Boost the range of any Wi-Fi network, with a few taps of your finger on the now shipping TAP-EX2.

Chino Hills, CA May 27, 2015

Amped Wireless, the leading manufacturer of high power, long range wireless solutions for the home and office, today is shipping the next model in its TAP Series of Touch Screen Wi-Fi devices, the TAP-EX2. The TAP-EX2 is a High Power Touch Screen AC750 Wi-Fi Range Extender and was recently chosen as a 2015 CES Innovations Design and Engineering Awards Honoree. Designed to boost any existing Wi-Fi network, the TAP-EX2 eliminates Wi-Fi dead spots and provides ultra-fast 802.11ac connections.

While this Range Extender is sleek and compact, it is a true powerhouse with the industry's most simple setup. It boosts the signal of any Wi-Fi router by repeating and amplifying the signal, extending Wi-Fi coverage to areas like upstairs rooms, out to the yard, or to the far office. Standard Wi-Fi devices utilize only 50 to 200mW of output power. While the TAP-EX2 delivers up to 800mW of Wi-Fi output power, all in an attractive table-top design. More output power means more Wi-Fi range, it allows a signal to push through walls and eliminate Wi-Fi dead spots for good. With 6 total amplifiers and two high gain antennas (one dual band external, one internal), the TAP-EX2 provides up to 10,000 square feet of additional coverage.

"Homes and offices are filled with more devices than ever before and it is essential that their Wi-Fi networks are up for the task," stated Lacey Limbrick, Brand/Marketing Manager at Amped Wireless. "Our TAP-EX2 is a solid solution for any home that needs more bandwidth and coverage from their network. It was designed to simplify the Wi-Fi setup process and to solve a common problem and that's exactly what it does. It's the next development in our TAP Series and we're very excited to get it in the hands of our customers."

The TAP-EX2 is a next gen 802.11ac range extender. It delivers simultaneous, dual band AC connections of up to 300Mbps on the 2.4GHz frequency and up to 433Mbps connections on the 5GHz frequency. With the three built in Ethernet ports, this means both wireless and wired connections at ultra-fast AC750 speeds. The TAP-EX2 is also compatible with any router, making it the perfect Wi-Fi extending solution for any home.

The setup of the TAP-EX2 is done entirely on the touch screen display. After powering on the Extender, the user taps to scan for the Wi-Fi network they would like to extend, then selects that network from the list and setup is complete. The touch screen also allows the user to control many features of the Range Extender including the setup and management of Guest Networks, the Wi-Fi Access Schedule, User Access Controls, the strength of the Wi-Fi signal in Signal Coverage Controls and many other settings.

The TAP-EX2 was recognized at the 2015 CES show as a leader in innovation. It was named a 2015 Innovations Design and Engineering Awards Honoree. "Being named a 2015 Innovations Design and Engineering Awards Honoree is another great achievement for our team," said Jason Owen, CEO of Amped Wireless. "By creating a product that harnesses our award winning, high power technology and an intuitive touch screen setup, we are able to provide homes with a strong Wi-Fi network that they are comfortable interacting with. We are very excited about this award and can't wait to ship out the product."

The TAP-EX2 is available for order now at It will be available at major brick and mortar retailers and other online retailers in the weeks to come.
