It features dual-band with maximum uploading and downloading speeds up to 1900 Mbps, it can easily outperform every other Wi-Fi booster of its class by a good margin. 

You will find five Gigabit Ethernet ports at the back of Netgear AC1900 Back, ideal for plugging in local computers or home entertainment gadgets (like a gaming console or a TV) directly into the router for a more stable connection. There is also a USB 3.0 port to convert the range extender into a small networkable media device or possibly a print server.

Two wireless bands are supported in EX7000, spread out over 2.4 and 5GHz, the first being used for the gadgets that don’t always need high speed and only need a maximum of 600Mbps, while the other is excellent for the devices in the home that need high speeds, such as computers, gaming consoles, and TV-based machines.

Netgear Extender Setup Expert Advice:

Doesn’t extend the WiFi name, meaning you’re forced to connect to another network, not just keep working off the one you were using already

Note: If your router supports the 5 GHz band, your extender attempts to connect to the router’s 5 GHz band the first time you press the WPS button. If your extender did not connect to the router’s 5 GHz band the first time, may result in a lot of issues during the Netgear Nighthawk AC1900 EX7000 extender setup.
