The 802.11ac WiFi standard is a spring chicken no longer, making us curious as to why there's a lack of range extenders supporting it -- barring Amped Wireless' efforts, of course. Looking to capitalize on the situation, Netgear's launching a pair of such extenders at CES, starting with the AC750 (aka the EX6100). This wall-plug model bounces up to 750 Mbps of dual-band WiFi to underserved areas, as well as playing host to one Ethernet port. The beefier AC1200 (aka EX6200) looks more like a router and packs five Ethernet ports, one USB 3.0 port, beamforming capabilities and can deliver up to 1,200 Mbps. Both are available now for $90 and $130, respectively, putting Amped Wireless' $200 option into fairly uncompetitive territory.
