A network with multiple wireless access points can be tedious to maintain. An AP management device connects into the same network as the access points. The device allows control of all the AP's from one point. Note that some management devices can only control up to a certain number of AP's. Always check the specifications of the device.
These pieces of hardware work with both wired and wireless networks and devices in specific ways. A Wireless Access Point is a 'wired to wireless' solution. It extends a wired network by converting it into a wireless connection.A Wireless Bridge allows devices such as gaming consoles, digital video cameras etc that come with a RJ45 network port to connect to a wireless network. As the unit effectively bridges together a wireless network to these connected wired network devices. Check individual specifications of the product for the exact features and capabilities to make sure it meets your requirements.
Cards and Devices to allow systems to communicate via wireless access points/routers for a fully functional wireless network.
Designed for high-speed broadband telephone line ADSL. This hardware requires an input from your landline, the output of this unit is both wired and wireless internet. The wired outputs are usually in the form of ethernet sockets and the wireless is WiFi. This enables both mobile/portable and fixed devices to connect to the ADSL Modem Router and share the one internet connection. Other features include the ability to connect a network printer and share files across the network through the router.
These aerials and accessories are for a range of wireless computer products. They include products that will extend the range of the wireless signal.

With advanced Firewalls on a network, which consists of a hardware device and software that is custom configured by a network administrator to keep the network secure.
HomePlug is the family name for various power line communications. Here we have HomePlug devices for network/data communication through a home electrical circuit. Useful for extending a wired network when a wireless network is not possible due to thick walls for example. The plug units feature a RJ45 network port to plug in a network cable. Advanced features include secure transmission between the plugs, wireless access points and the ability to add extra plugs with some products. Check the individual specifications of a product to confirm what features are available.
The products in this category are used to extend wired internet connections over extreme distances. Entry-level products can be used to use a connection over hundreds of metres, and pricier models extend connections over 20 or even 60 kilometres.
These Internet Protocol cameras are used for surveillance. They can send
and receive their video data via a computer network and the Internet. Their connection to a network via a wired or wireless router allows the video to be sent to a computer. Some advanced features include the ability to log directly into the camera over the internet using a web browser. Check specifications of individual product to confirm features.
A network cable is used to connect a computer to a network. This can be a range of setups such as a broadband router feeding a single computer, two computers connected directly to each other, or a multiple number of computers and a network printer all connected to a server or router. RJ45 is the plug type. The general difference between CAT5e and CAT6 cabling is the increased transmission performance with CAT6. Note that there are two configurations of cables, Straight and X-Over (crossover). A X-Over cable is only used when connecting two computers directly to each other, or when connecting a computer directly to a peripheral for setup/configuration purposes.
These cables are vital if you want a wired internet connection in your home or office. We've got them in a wide variety of colours and lengths.
