Latest Wireless N Technology Enhances Performance and Coverage:
The ZyXEL WAP3205 brings you a faster wireless connection than the existing 11g networks. With a data transfer rate of up to 300Mbps*, which is 6 times faster than 11g, you can enjoy high-speed network connection and high-definition video streaming no matter where you are at home, and better yet, it also works with your existing 802.11b and 802.11g network.
Easy to Expand Your Network Wirelessly:
Some wired devices such as modems, set-top boxes, digital media adapters and storage devices might not be natively wireless capable. In order to connect these without additional wiring, driver installation or configuration, just plug the Ethernet cable into the WAP3205 and connect to another wired device to get connected wirelessly.
Extend Wireless Network Coverage with Most Popular APs:
With the built-in Universal Repeater mode, the WAP3205 can work as a wireless client to connect most popular access points, and simultaneously performs as an access point to provide wireless connectivity to all other wireless devices such as notebooks. In other words, WAP3205 can extend the wireless coverage to the entire home premise and enable all wireless devices to link to the existing network – this is especially helpful for larger home environments.
One-touch WPS button for easy wireless security setup:
Equipped with a Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) push button, the WAP3205 makes establishing a secure wireless network easy. The WPS takes only a few seconds to set up a secure wireless network without any complicated procedures. Instead of entering a pass phrase, users can authenticate a new device on the network by pressing a single button or by entering an automatically generated PIN code. With the button option, users could even setup the wireless configuration and encryption with just a simple click.
In terms of best value for your money, the TP-Link TL-WA801ND and the Edimax EW-7416APn stand out. They cost about 35 euros and perform well. The cheapest access points with above average scores costs around 50 euros, the TP-Link TL-WA901ND and the ZyXEL WAP3205 v2.
Der Zyxel WAP3205 ist schnell in Betrieb genommen, nach dem Anschließen von Stromversorgung und Netzwerkkabel wird das Gerät konfiguriert. Hierzu muss sich mindestens ein PC im selben IP-Bereich wie der WAP3205 befinden. Die Web-Oberfläche ist übersichtlich aufgebaut, ein Wizard, der durch die Konfiguration führt, fehlt allerdings.
Offering a hefty 100 meters of extra WiFi signal, the ZyXEL WAP3205 is a great upgrade you can make to your existing home network. Also, it has another two Ethernet ports that you can use to connect your wired devices into the wireless network and with two antennas, one for receiving the Wi-Fi signal and one for bouncing it along. The only thing I could find wrong with this Wi-Fi enhancer is that it does not have a ON/OFF switch, so for turning it off or for resetting the unit, you need to unplug it.
