D-Link's Wireless N Open Source Access Point allows you to create your own personal wireless home network to share wireless Internet connection, documents, music, and photos. Using Wireless N technology, it offers a higher speed, extended coverage and virtually no dead spots while still compatible with previous network standards.
This Access Point can be configured to operate in any of the following 7 modes: 1. Wireless Access Point (AP); 2. AP Client to connect to another Access Point; 3. Bridge, with one or more peer APs, to easily create dedicated building-to-building links; 4. Bridge with AP, to allow wireless clients on the bridging link; 5. Wireless repeater, to extend the wireless coverage and cover any "dead spot"; 6. WISP Client Router, to share an Internet connection based on Wi-Fi between wired computers without an additional router; 7. WISP Repeater, to share an Internet connection based on Wi-Fi between wired/wireless computers without an additional router.
Robust security is included, with support for WPA/WPA2 encryption, MAC address filtering and the SSID broadcast disable function, which makes your network invisible for outsiders. A schedule function allows you to turn the wireless network off when not needed, saving energy.
D-Link Click'n Connect (DCC), is an intuitive software wizard that runs directly from the product CD-ROM, helping you to install and configure the device without prior knowledge required.
Advanced users will enjoy adding their own features, as the DAP-1360 is based on an open-source Linux platform.
