Up to 108Mbps Speed on 2.4GHz Frequency Band

With transmission speeds of up to 108Mbps (Turbo mode) on the popular 2.4GHz public frequency, the DWL-2100 is an ideal solution for bandwidth intensive WLAN applications. In a typical working environment with multiple users accessing the network at the same time, the DWL-2100AP can operate at 15 times the throughput of the normal 802.11b wireless LAN equipment.

Compatible With 802.11b

802.11g's compatibility with existing wireless LAN standards means that you do not need to change your entire network to maintain connectivity. The DWL-2100AP can transmit data at up to 108Mbps when used with D-Link AirPlus XtremeG and other 802.11g products. You may sacrifice some of this speed when you mix 802.11b with this device, but you will not lose the ability to communicate.

Flexible Configuration

The DWL-2100AP can be configured to operate in any one of the 5 modes: (1) as a wireless access point, (2) a point-to-point bridge with another access point, (3) a point-to-multi-point wireless bridge, (4) a wireless client or (5) a wireless repeater. With these built-in functions, the DWL-2100AP gives you the flexibility to configure the device to meet your environment's requirements.

Easy Migration to Higher Bandwidth

By maintaining compatibility with your existing wireless network equipment, the DWL-2100AP lets you upgrade to a higher speed at the pace you want. The DWL-2100AP and other 802.11g standard devices can be gradually added to your network, while the rest of your older network remains perfectly connected.

Wi-Fi Protected Access

Enhanced security is provided with Wi-Fi Protected Access to authorize and identify users based on a secret key that changes automatically at a regular interval. Used in conjunction with a RADIUS server, WPA employs TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) to change the temporal key every 10,000 packets. This insures much greater security than the standard WEP security, which requires the keys to be changed manually.

802.1x Authentication

The DWL-2100AP supports 802.1x authentication for protection against network intrusion. Used in conjunction with a RADIUS server, this function provides a means to verify the identity of the client before an access to the network is granted.

Pre-Shared Key

This function brings a lot of convenience (when used in conjunction with other 802.11g products) for users that do not incorporate a RADIUS server in their networks. Utilizing the Pre Shared Key mode of WPA, the DWL-2100AP gives each user a new security key every time he connects to the 802.11g network. Users only need to input their encryption information once in the configuration menu. With the DWL-2100AP, each user will automatically receive a new key every time he connects, the inconvenience of manual WEP key input is eliminated.

Embedded DHCP Server

The DWL-2100AP includes an embedded DHCP server that once enabled will automatically assign IP addresses to wireless clients. This unique feature makes the DWL-2100AP an ideal solution for quickly creating and extending a wireless local area network (WLAN) in offices or other workplaces.
