Wireless Access Point: Integrating the latest in wireless technology,
the 802.11n Wireless Access Point (N-WAP) provides a reliable wireless network
solution for today's homeowners. With built in IEEE 802.11b/g/n wireless network
capability, the N-WAP allows any computer and wireless-enabled network client to
connect without additional cabling. With connection speeds of up to 300Mbps, the
N-WAP flawlessly supports even the most bandwidth intensive wireless
applications such as streaming video services and online gaming without the loss
of performance. The N-WAP comes with both in-ceiling and in-wall mounting
brackets, plus covers included for maximum install versatility; as well as a
48-volt power supply and Power over Ethernet (PoE) injector.
802.11n Technology w Dual Antennas: 802.11n technology with dual
antennas provide ultra-high-speed wireless (up to 300Mbps) with improved range
and expanded coverage area. It is also backward compatible with 802.11b/g
standard (11Mbps/54Mbps). Data Rates:
- 11n Mode: up to 300 Mbps
- 11g Mode: 6/9/12/18/24/36/48/54 Mbps
- 11b Mode: 1/2/5.5/11 Mbps
Web-Based GUI: Using the included "DA-Discovery.exe"
CD-ROM software disc, the N-WAP integrates a web-based graphical user interface
(Setup Wizard) that can cover most configurations and machine status monitoring.
Via a standard web browser, you can configure and check machine status from
anywhere around the world.
DHCP: The N-WAP is designed as a DHCP device, which means
it automatically gets an IP address from the router it is attached to. It is
defaulted to AP mode (meaning it acts as a wireless Access Point for wireless
devices around the home, like laptops) and those devices also get their IP
address from the router that the N-WAP is attached to. No configuration is
required for basic operation.
Note: Besides AP Mode, there are three other
Operational Modes that the N-WAP can be configured to support; Client Mode,
Repeater Mode, and Router Mode.
Network Security: To secure the wireless communication,
the N-WAP supports most up-to-date encryption: WEP, WPAPSK and WPA2-PSK. In
addition, the N-WAP supports WPS configuration with PBC/PIN type for users to
connect to a secured wireless network easily.
Note: By default, there is no security configured,
which means anyone within range (even outside your home) can access your
internet connection. To restrict access (configure security) or operate in a
different mode other than AP, you must log onto the N-WAP. To do this you
must know its IP address, and we have provided a utility program for you to
find the unit's IP address.
LED Indicators: The unit features 3 LEDs to indicate
Ethernet, Power, and WiFi operation.

In-Wall/In-Ceiling Mounting Options: The N-WAP is
supplied with mounting hardware for two different installation methods. It can
be mounted in a three-gang electrical box using the round cover for in-ceiling
installation, or in a single-gang electrical box using the small rectangular
cover for in-wall installation. The N-WAP is unobtrusive in look similar to an
in-wall speaker or smoke detector, letting it blend right in to any decor.
