Up to 54Mbps Speed on 2.4GHz Frequency Band
Providing transmission speeds of up to 54Mbps, the DWL-2000AP+ compares favorably with 802.11b devices that offer 11Mbps speed, and with 802.11b+ equipment that gives 22Mbps transmission. This enhanced speed and adoption of 2.4GHz frequency, now available for public use in most countries, plus the mobility and convenience inherent in a wireless LAN, make this device an ideal solution for bandwidth intensive WLAN applications.
Real Throughput 10 Times Faster Than 802.11b
Apart from the higher theoretical network data transfer speed of 54Mbps for 802.11g against the 11Mbps for 802.11b, the DWL-2000AP+ also delivers a much faster data transmission than other wireless LAN devices. In a typical working environment with multiple users accessing the network at the same time, the DWL-2000AP+ operates at 10 times the speed of the normal 802.11b wireless LAN
equipment, which is made possible by means of a turbo engine firmware inside this AP.
802.11g's compatibility with existing wireless LAN standards means that you do not need to change your entire network to maintain connectivity. The DWL-2000AP+ can transmit data at up to 54Mbps when used with D-Link AirPlusXtremeG+ and other 802.11g products.
Built-in Bridge Functions
The DWL-2000AP+ can be configured to operate in any one of the 4 modes: (1) as a wireless access point (AP), (2) a point to point wireless bridge, (3) a point to multi point wireless bridge, or (4) a wireless client. With these built-in functions, the DWL-2000AP+ gives you the flexibility to configure the device to meet your environment's requirements.
Easy Migration to Higher Bandwidth
By maintaining compatibility with your existing wireless network equipment, the DWL-2000AP+ lets you upgrade to a higher speed at the pace you want. The DWL-2000AP+ and other 802.11g standard devices can be gradually added to your network, while the rest of your older network remains perfectly connected.
Embedded DHCP Server
The DWL-2000AP+ includes an embedded DHCP server that, once enabled, will automatically assign IP addresses to wireless clients. This unique feature makes the DWL-2000AP+ an ideal solution for quickly creating and extending a wireless local area network (WLAN) in offices or other workplaces, and at trade shows and other special events.
