D-Link DW-6600AP Access Point with Dual-band 2.4GHz / 5GHz Support, PoE Enabled 1x Gigabit Lan
The DWL-6600AP delivers reliable wireless performance with maximum wireless signal rates of up to 300 Mbps in either the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz mode. Support for Wi-Fi Multimedia™ (WMM) Quality of Service features makes the DWL-6600AP an ideal Access Point for audio, video, and voice applications. In addition, the load balancing feature ensures maximum performance and best service quality in the wireless environment.
For small businesses that need to deploy multiple Access Points but lack the resources to tackle the complicated task of network management, the DWL-6600AP’s self-configuring cluster feature offers the ideal solution. When a small number of DWL-6600APs is deployed on the network, they may be configured to form a self-configuring cluster. Once the administrator is through with configuring one Access Point, the same configuration can then be applied to all remaining APs. Up to 16 APs may be used to form a cluster.
Alternatively, the DWL-6600AP can operate in conjunction with D-Link’s DWC-1000 Wireless Controller. In this mode, multiple DWL-6600APs can connect directly or indirectly to one of these switches/controllers to provide unparalleled security and wireless mobility for wireless clients. Each DWL-6600AP will be continually tuned by these switches to provide the optimal RF channels and transmission power for all mobile clients, giving them the best wireless signals in both 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz bands and uninterrupted wireless connectivity.
The DWL-6600AP supports the latest standards in Wi-Fi security, including WEP, WPA, WPA2, and 802.1X. In addition, the DWL-6600AP supports up to 16 virtual Access Points (VAP) per radio, for a total of 32 VAPs, which allows the administrator to assign different access privileges to different groups of users. When Station Isolation is enabled, the AP blocks communication between wireless clients on the same radio and VAP. Rogue APs in the network may be easily detected, and the administrator will be immediately notified of any security threat. When used together with D-Link’s Wireless Controller, the security can be raised to a new level.
With an embedded antenna and simple styled exterior, the DWL-6600AP can be installed on a wall or ceiling and blends in with most interior decorations in an office. Enclosed in a plenum-rated chassis, the DWL-6600AP adheres to strict fire codes for placement in air passageways. For easy installation, the DWL-6600AP has integrated 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) support, allowing installation of this device in areas where power outlets are not readily available.
3rd party support
The DWL-3600AP supports AirMagnet™, one of the industry’s most accurate software solutions for planning, designing and troubleshooting wireless networks for optimal performance, security and compliance. AirMagnet™ calculates the ideal quantity, placement and configuration of APs for a successful WLAN deployment. It also allows IT administrators to test and diagnose wireless performance issues. Additionally, a RFID-based location tracking system is supported with Aeroscout™ technology. Aeroscout™ allows tracking of persons, objects and assets by means of RFID tags which have built-in location capabilities. This is especially useful within healthcare, manufacturing and security sectors.

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.
