Amped Wireless is a bit of a cult favorite here at Engadget, we love its super-high distance outdoor WiFi gear that has a range of up to 1.5 miles. It's unveiling four new devices for early 2012 that provide the same level of extreme coverage for the inside of your home.
  • The High-Power Wireless-N 600mW Gigabit Router (R1000G) will cover 10,000 square feet in gigabit internet, costing $140.
  • The High-Power Wireless-N Dual Band 600mW Gigabit Router (R2000G) does the same, only it'll switch between the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, ensuring that Hulu stream never dies -- and will retail for $180.
  • The Dual-Band Wireless-N Smart Repeater (SR2000G) will push your wireless connection a further 10,000 square feet and will also retail for $180.
  • The High Power Wireless-N Dual Band USB Adapter (UA2000) has twice the range of a regular USB dongle, packing a 600mW amplifier and 5dBi antenna for a speed of up to 300Mbps and will set you back just $80.
The top device (Single Channel Gigabit Router) will arrive at the end of this month and the other three will appear in the homes of land-barons nationwide in April.
