The extraordinary growth in the number of wireless devices found in modern homes has seen a huge increase in demand for wireless speed, range and bandwidth. This continuing trend away from wired connections to wireless communication and the ever-increasing throughput demands of new Wi-Fi devices and applications—including Internet TVs, computers, tablets and smartphones—drives the requirements in today’s homes for high-performance, reliable Wi-Fi to unprecedented levels. To meet the connectivity needs of homes and businesses alike, Edimax has launched the BR-6208AC V2 dual-band 802.11ac router with elegant and compact design: featuring the latest 11ac standard for extraordinary improvements in the speed, reliability and quality of wireless communications.
Next-Generation Wireless Networking
The Edimax BR-6208AC V2 router supports the next generation IEEE 802.11ac wireless standard, meaning higher data rates in the 5GHz band. With 300Mbps speeds in the 2.4GHz band and 433Mbps speeds in 5GHz, the BR-6208AC V2 is ideal for HD video streaming and large file transfers. The router is also backward compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n to ensure compatibility with legacy Wi-Fi devices.
Concurrent Dual-Band Wi-Fi Connectivity
The Edimax BR-6208AC V2 router provides simultaneous 2.4GHz (802.11n) and 5GHz (802.11ac) wireless network connectivity for maximum flexibility of use.
VPN Access for Privacy & Security
Built-in Virtual Private Network (VPN) support for easy VPN access on all your devices. VPNs enable you to access secure, remote networks from anywhere and can offer privacy and security online. Log in to your work/school network remotely or avoid geoblocking, protect privacy on public Wi-Fi and bypass Internet censorship.
- Home Users: Avoid regional restrictions and access geoblocked content such as Netflix or iPlayer from anywhere. Ensure your privacy and anonymity online and defeat censorship and other location-based content restrictions. You can also remotely access your home network when you’re away, and use your encrypted VPN for security when out and about using potentially unsafe public Wi-Fi hotspots.
- Small Office Users: Enable your employees to access company resources remotely such as email, documents saved on the company server and any programs/systems when they are outside the office.
5-in-1 Router, Access Point, Range Extender, Wireless Bridge and WISP

Edimax’s Revolutionary iQoS
iQoS is Edimax’s solution for a quicker, easier, and more effective way to manage Internet bandwidth. While Quality of Service (QoS) functionality is a common feature in routers across the market, typically only advanced users have the knowledge required to set up the complex parameters. Edimax though has redesigned QoS with user-friendliness and accessibility in mind. A simple and intuitive user interface allows users to arrange bandwidth priority settings in just a few clicks. With iQoS, you can enjoy gaming, video streaming, VoIP applications and BT clients at the same time without the usual nightmare of lag and interruptions. An original, efficient and effective means of managing your Internet bandwidth.
High Gain Antennas For Better Wi-Fi Performance
Employing three external high-gain fixed antennas, the BR-6208AC V2 provides powerful 2.4GHz and 5GHz dual-band signal strength and enhances Wi-Fi range, providing signal penetration through walls and floors across your home or office.
Multi-SSID & VLAN Support*
Multi-SSID enables users to configure up to eight separate SSIDs (2.4GHz x 4 and 5GHz x 4) in order to group and manage users according to your requirements. In addition, each SSID can be assigned a different VLAN ID, so users with multiple VLANs can manage the network access level of each SSID – ensuring security and protecting confidential or critical network resources.
