Netgear WG102 ProSafe 802.11g Wireless Access Point

Intelligent Networking Features for a Scalable, Secure Solution
NETGEAR's ProSafe 802.11g Wireless Access Point WG102 delivers the secure, reliable, high-performance wireless local area networks (WLANs) today's mobile workforce demands. This powerful device provides the industry standard access to corporate network resources, email and the Internet and includes support for MBSSID/VLANs, to enable more granular access to the network. Fully compatible with IEEE 802.11g, (2.4 GHz), it can also be set for dynamic 108 Mbps 802.11g. With its robust security measures, simplified management and configuration, SNMP support, integrated IEEE 802.3af power over Ethernet (PoE), and WiFi certification, the WG102 brings standards-based enterprise-level functionality at a mid-market price.

Complies with industry security standards for wireless data encryption, and user authorization. WPA2-Enterprise (802.11i) provides enhanced, interoperable wireless networking security. WPA2 and 802.1x support enables strong mutual authentication to ensure that only legitimate clients associate with corporate RADIUS servers. Supports MAC address authentication with 128-user access control list (ACL) and VPN pass-through. The WG102 provides support for multiple Basic Service Set Identifiers (BSSID) and virtual LANs (VLANs). You can configure combination of VLANS and BSSIDS to provide stronger or less restrictive access to the network according to your requirements. For example visitors could be given wireless access for the Internet, but could be excluded from any access to the internal network.

Far Reaching
The WG102 supports Wireless Distribution System (WDS) in several modes to enable wireless networks to extend over large areas without wires. Bridge-to-bridge mode can connect two wired networks across a street while repeater mode can extend wireless access to additional clients where a relay AP repeats signals from a base AP to distant clients. The detachable antenna enables replacement antennas for mounting flexibility or directional signal shaping.

Cost-effective, compact, and simple to install and use. Integrated PoE support expands installation options by eliminating the need to locate near a power outlet. WiFi certified and plenum-rated for appropriate placement above drop-down ceilings and under raised floors. Supports Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and optimized for NETGEAR ProSafe Network Management System NMS100. It can be converted to a light AP managed by NETGEAR's Smart Wireless Controller (WFS709TP) for an upgrade of the network to a controller-based wireless architecture. Equipped with convenient Smart Wizard™ browser-based interface. Fitted with one powerful detachable 5 dBi antenna and compatible with NETGEAR's ProSafe 2.4 GHz antennas for expanded wireless capacity and range. Protected with a NETGEAR Lifetime Warranty.
