Linksys WET200 Wireless-G Business Ethernet Bridge

The Linksys WET200 Wireless Bridge seamlessly bridges separate Ethernet networks together wirelessly and is ideal for small businesses with offices and resources that are in different office suites of a building or a closely adjacent building. The WET200 is a Power over Ethernet (PoE) end device so it can be installed anywhere an Ethernet cable can be run if there is not ready access to a power outlet. PoE enables delivery of both data and power to the WET200. An AC adapter is also included if the device installation site has a power outlet nearby.

Advanced security features include Wi-Fi Protected Access™ (WPA2 Enterprise) with up to 256-bit AES encryption using EAP (Extensible Authentication Protocol) giving small businesses the protection they need to communicate and transfer data securely. The integrated QoS features provide consistent voice and video quality on both the wired and wireless networks, enabling the deployment of business qualilty VoIP and video applications.

Additional support for VLANs, SNMP, Spanning Tree, and Port Mirroring make this an ideal solution for network administrators to incorporate into larger organizations.

RangeBooster technology is a compatible add-on to standard Wireless-G that increases wireless signal range up to two times and throughput by up to 35%. Unlike ordinary wireless technologies that are hampered by signal reflections, RangeBooster devices use smart antennas and embedded processors to detect and decode reflected signals to enhance and boost data throughput. This capability also helps to reduce or eliminate "dead spots" within the wireless coverage area as well.

* 5-port Wireless Bridge for securely connecting separate wired networks
* Standards-based POE (IEEE 802.3af) or External DC power provides flexible installation
* RangeBooster technology for up to twice the range, reduced dead spots, and up to 35% more throughput than standard 802.11g
* Advanced wireless security using Wi-Fi Protected Access™ (WPA2 Enterprise) with up to 256-bit AES encryption and support for WMM provides improved QoS over wireless connections for better video and voice performance.
