The TP-Link TL-WA801ND 300 Mbps Wireless N Access Point is engineered to establish or expand a scalable high-speed wireless N network. It can also be used to connect multiple Ethernet enabled devices, such as game consoles, digital media adapters, printers or network attached storage devices to a wireless network. The APs provide support for a variety of different functions that make your wireless networking experience more versatile than ever. Now, you have the ability to enjoy a better Internet experience for downloading, gaming, video streaming or any other application you wish.

Employing IEEE 802.11n advanced MIMO (Multi Input Multi Output) technology, the access point works simultaneously through 2 antennas to Tx and Rx, in order to overcome interference and signal degradation over long distances or through physical barriers in a small office or a large apartment. This results in an amazing improvement in the wireless performance, even in a steel-and-concrete building. Most importantly, you can easily pick up the wireless network during long-distance connection where legacy 11g products may not be able to do so.

The device supports AP Client, Bridge, Universal / WDS Repeater and AP operation modes to allow for various wireless applications, providing you with a more dynamic and comprehensive experience while using your AP. Multiple operating modes assist you in the building of a wireless network for tough-to-wire locations or in getting rid of wireless dead zones.

Compatible with WI-FI Protected Setup (WPS), TL-WA801ND features a Quick Security Setup that enables you to almost instantaneously set up your security--just by pressing the "QSS" button! This automatically establishes a WPA2 secure connection, which is known to be more secure than WEP encryptions. Not only is this faster than normal security setups, it's more convenient in that there's no need to remember a password! The device supports both Personal and Enterprise encryptions.

The TL-WA801ND is capable of being powered by an Ethernet cable to simultaneously send data and electricity to wherever your AP is located--even up to 100' (30.5 m) away. This feature multiplies your options, enabling you to place the AP in the position that is most conducive to receiving the best signal, such as on the wall or ceiling of your office.

Wireless N speeds up to 300 Mbps make it perfect for bandwidth-hungry or interruption-sensitive applications, such as video streaming, online gaming and voice over Internet
MIMO technology gives you robust high-bandwidth wireless Tx / Rx capability at extended range
Clear Channel Assessment (CCA) improves wireless performance while automatically avoiding channel conflict

          Comments about TP-Link TL-WA801ND 300 Mbps Wireless N Access Point:

          I have had good success with several TP-Link products, so I decited to give this product a try. This Access Point delivered as expected. First of all, it is very versatile: If can function as a wireless-n Access Point or it can be a Repeater or Client Bridge, depending on your needs (I ordered several of them so that I can use them as the needs arise).

          I found the user interface to be easy to navigate and setup. The range and power were good, not great (that's why I gave 4 stars instead of 5). It will be more than adequate for a home or small office.

          I've only had the unit setup for a week or so, but haven't had any problems or issues.

              I bought this product to replace a wireless router whose routing capabilities were redundant on my network and were causing problems. This device has simplified things quite a bit. It was easy to set up and worked flawlessly out of the box!

                Incredibly easy to set up and gets the job done.

                I have tried it out in a couple different modes: bridge and repeater. Both modes worked as intended. In repeater mode, my internet speed test was about 25% of typical speed.

                Next, I am going to re-set up as a client, wouldn't expect any problems.

                  I am using this product as a Wireless AP. The instructions that came with the product was sufficient for me to configure this with WPA/WPA2 security. This has been in use for about 2 weeks now and has been working perfectly. I have about 8 wireless devices connected to the AP and they all work at the maximum bandwidth that each device is capable of. The unit gets a little hot to the touch though.
