The EW-7428HCN N300 High Power Ceiling Mount/Wireless PoE Range Extender/Access Point from Edimax Technology is a 2-in-1 unit with 2 operating modes – Wi-Fi extender and access point.
The access point complies with IEEE 802.11b/g/n standards. The wireless MIMO (Multiple-Input and Multiple-Output) technology is built into this access point to broaden its Wi-Fi coverage and to eliminate dead spots within the signal range. When it is connected to IEEE 802.11n wireless devices, this wireless access point can reach Wi-Fi speeds of up to 300 Mb/s.
The WDS (Wireless Distributed System) function lets the access point act as a wireless LAN access point and repeater at the same time. It can be used to build up a large wireless network in a large space like airports, hotels, and schools. It is also useful when you want to bridge networks between buildings.
A WPS button can help you set up an encrypted wireless connection simply by pressing the WPS button on this access point and the client device. This one-press WPS button helps users set up a secure wireless network in less than a minute. With the WLAN technology, the unit is able to adjust its power supply according to the amount of network activity.
