Linksys has announced the launch of a new router with RangeBooster technology to improve the range of the wireless signal.

The WRV200’s incorporation of RangeBooster should yield an increase in range of up to two times, and a throughput boost of up to 35%. It uses two receivers at each end to detect and decode reflected signals at long-range distances.

It includes Virtual Private Network features to help secure mobile workers’ connections, and supports multiple SSIDs with support for Wireless QoS and wired QoS. Linksys promises that the web-based interface is easy to use and makes it simple to set up the system.

Additional security features beyond encryption and firewall include enabling/disabling SSID Broadcasts, MAC-based filtering, and Denial of Service prevention.

The WRV200 carries a recommended retail price of £50.
