Amped Wireless has introduced the Long-Range Wireless AC router: RTA15. The main attraction of this Wi-Fi router is its high-power extended coverage which is done using three external antennas and up to 10 internal amplifiers! The feature that allows users to adjust the power of their Wi-Fi signals could be very useful in many situations. If you have a specific application where you need to put up one router for long-range coverage, this might very well be the router for you. The general specs of this router are also decent.
