D Link 1200mbps DAP-2660 Wireless/WiFi Dual-Band AC Access Point
Super-fast Wireless AC Performance
The DAP-2660 delivers reliable, high-speed wireless performance using the latest 802.11ac standards with maximum wireless signal rates of up to 300 Mbps over the 2.4 GHz band, and 867 Mbps over the 5 GHz band. With band steering, the DAP-2660 detects whether or not the wireless client is dual-band capable and if it is, it will push the client to connect to the less congested 5 GHz 802.11ac/n network. It does this by actively blocking the client’s attempts to associate with the 2.4 GHz network. Band steering can ensure clients on the 5 GHz band can achieve their maximum performance without being bottle-necked by legacy 2.4 GHz 802.11b/g/n clients. This way, you can make the most of Wireless AC technology and at the same time ensure backwards compatibility with existing legacy equipment.
This, coupled with support for the Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM) Quality of Service (QoS) feature, makes it an ideal access point for audio, video, and voice applications. Additionally, the DAP-2660 supports load balancing to ensure maximum performance by limiting the maximum number of users per access point.
Versatile Access Point Functionality
The DAP-2660 allows network administrators to deploy a highly manageable and extremely robust simultaneous dual-band wireless network. The DAP-2660 can provide optimal wireless coverage over either the 2.4 GHz (802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n) or the 5 GHz (802.11a, 802.11n, and 802.11ac) band. The DAP-2660 can be ceiling-mounted, wall-mounted, or placed on a desktop to meet any wireless demands. For advanced installations, the DAP-2660 has integrated 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) support, allowing this device to be installed in areas where power outlets are not readily available.
To help maintain a secure wireless network, the DAP-2660 supports both Personal and Enterprise versions of WPA and WPA2. With support for RADIUS server backend and a built-in internal RADIUS server allowing users to create their accounts within the device itself. This access point also includes MAC address filtering, wireless LAN segmentation, SSID broadcast disable, rogue AP detection, and wireless broadcast scheduling to further protect your wireless network. The DAP-2660 includes support for up to eight VLANs per band for implementing multiple SSIDs to further help segment users on the network. It also includes a wireless client isolation mechanism, which limits direct client-to-client communication. Additionally, the DAP-2660 supports Network Access Protection (NAP), a feature of Windows Server 2008, allowing network administrators to define multiple levels of network access based on individual client’s needs.
Multiple Operation Modes
To maximise total return on investment, the DAP-2660 can be configured to optimise network performance based on any one of its multiple operation modes: access point, wireless distribution system (WDS) with access point, WDS/bridge (no AP broadcasting), and wireless client. With WDS support, network administrators can set up multiple DAP-2660s throughout a facility and configure them to bridge with one another while also providing network access to individual clients. The DAP-2660 also features advanced features such as load balancing and redundancy, for fail-safe wireless connectivity.
Network administrators have multiple options for managing the DAP-2660, including web (HTTP), Secure Socket Layer (SSL), which provides for a secure connection to the Internet, Secure Shell (SSH), which provides for a secure channel between local and remote computers, and Telnet.
The DAP-2660 has a wireless scheduler feature, which turns off wireless functionality when it isn’t needed, saving power. With simultaneous dual-band functionality, PoE support, extensive manageability, versatile operation modes, and solid security enhancements, the DAP-2660 provides small to medium business and enterprise environments with a business-class solution for deploying a wireless network.

WiFi is a wonderful thing. You can take your laptop anywhere in your house and access the Internet, or access your network from the garden. However, it does introduce the grim possibility of somebody else doing exactly the same, without you ever knowing. This guide seeks to make you aware of various security terms and ideas associated with wireless networking and what you should consider when setting up a wireless network.

As a growing number of homes contain more than one computer, their users must find ways to network them. The primary purpose for creating a home network tends to be to provide Internet access to all computers within the house. There are other good reasons, however. These include enabling LAN gaming, data backups from one machine to another and the sharing of music within the home.
