Expanding the Wireless Network
The APs support a host of different functions that makes your wireless networking experience more ¬flexible than ever before. The Access Points use Repeater Mode to expand the coverage and signal strength for the current wireless environment with Wireless Distribution Service (WDS) technology by connecting multiple access points. TP-LINK´s 11N products also feature Universal Repeater Mode so that even APs and Routers without WDS can be compatible. Users can use this feature to build up a larger wireless network in spaces with broader coverage areas and more users such as cafes, offices, and hotels.
Power over Ethernet*
For applications that require users to put a network device (such as an AP) in a location where there is no electrical outlet available, Passive Power over Ethernet* is the best solution available. A Bundled Power Injector can supply both electricity and data streams over a single RJ45 cable to the access point even up to 30 meters away, giving users more freedom when choosing where to locate their APs to get the greatest signal quality possible.
Quick Secure Setup
QSS or Quick Security Setup is a handy feature on the TL-WA801ND that allows users to almost instantly setup their security simply by pressing the QSS button on the wireless access point automatically establishes a WPA2 secure connection, instantly protecting your network. Not only is this faster than normal security setups but more convenient in that you don´t need to remember a password!
Multi-SSID with VLAN Support
The Multi-SSID function allows users to create a separate network that segments users that need priority access or different levels of security. Different SSIDs refer to different VLANs with different services to protect confidential files from those who should not have access.
