Description

The AirPlus XtremeG DWL-2100AP is an enhanced high-performance 802.11g wireless Access Point for use indoors. This device supports wireless networking speeds of up to 108Mbps (Turbo mode) on the popular 2.4GHz public frequency, while providing seamless interoperability with existing 802.11b wireless equipment.

The DWL-2100AP can be configured to operate in any one of the 5 modes: (1) as a wireless access point, (2) a point-to-point bridge with another access point, (3) a point-to-multi-point wireless bridge, (4) a wireless client or (5) a wireless repeater. With these built-in functions, the DWL-2100AP gives you the flexibility to configure the device to meet your environment's requirements.

Enhanced security is provided with Wi-Fi Protected Access to authorize and identify users based on a secret key that changes automatically at a regular interval. Used in conjunction with a RADIUS server, WPA employs TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) to change the temporal key every 10,000 packets. This insures much greater security than the standard WEP security, which requires the keys to be changed manually.

The DWL-2100AP supports 802.1x authentication for protection against network intrusion. Used in conjunction with a RADIUS server, this function provides a means to verify the identity of the client before an access to the network is granted.

Replaces an older D-Link 900 access point as I wanted better data encryption. First job from out of the box was to update the firmware to latest from a download from the D-Link website. Once done, set it up on my network and was away - it's working quite happily with a Toshiba A120 laptop and Eten M600 smartphone. Used MAC address filtering and WPA-PSK encryption with a 20 character key consisting of random upper/lower/numeric characters. I did try to use special characters like "£" and "&" but with no success - I think this must be a limitation. No problems at all, works fine and with better security than WEP!
