Design

As you can see, the Wi-Fi extender from Rock Space has a US plug.  If you are from another country, like me, then you will need an adapter.

There is also a sticker with MAC address, SSID, and other technical information about the device.

The reset button and Ethernet port are on the bottom.

That’s all!

Rock Space AC1200 has many holes all over the body. I think they are necessary to cool the device.

OK, now let me show you how to connect the Wi-Fi extender to the router.

Connection

Rock Space AC1200 has two connection methods. The first one is to use the WPS button. You just need to press the WPS button on the router and Wi-Fi extender. In a few seconds, both devices will be connected to each other.

However, I recommend you use the second method because you can choose the network name, password, and other settings.

First, you need to plug-in the Wi-Fi extender. Wait until the power indicator will be blue.

Then, take your phone, laptop, or computer and connect to the RockSpaceExtender network.

Open the web browser on your device, and go to re.rockspace.local website.

Now, you need to enter a new password.

On this page, choose the network from your router. In my case, this is Alex.

Now, enter the password from your router network.

After that, you will see the message – Extended successfully.

By the way, I recommend you to read the tips on the screen. The first tip says that you need to move the repeater halfway between the Wi-Fi router and a Wi-Fi dead zone.

Also, you can use the Signal LED color to choose the best location for Wi-Fi extender. If the signal light is blue, then you chose a good place. If the light is red and it is off, then you need to move the repeater closer to the router.

The networks from Wi-Fi extender have the same SSID as your router, but EXT and 5G_EXT at the end.

Now let’s check how this device works.

Speed Test

As you can see, the signal indicator on my Wi-Fi expander is blue, which means that I chose a good place for it.

Wi-Fi speed at 2.4 GHz is 78,3 MBPs and 92,1 MBPs at 5 GHz network. I have 100MBPs internet speed, so Rock Space AC1200 has very good performance.

Also, I want to check the speed via Ethernet cable. As you can see, wired speed is a little higher than wireless.
