Netgear WG302 ProSafe Wireless Access Point

Intelligent Networking Features for a Scalable, Secure Solution
NETGEAR's ProSafe 802.11g Wireless Access Point WG302 delivers the secure, reliable, high-performance wireless local area networks (WLANs) today's mobile workforce demands. This powerful device provides the ultimate in industry standard access to corporate network resources, email and the Internet. 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, extended range, integrated IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE), and WiFi certification, the WG302 brings standards-based enterprise-level functionality at a mid-market price.

With the emergence of VoIP technology, the WG302 now supports SpectraLink Voice Priority. SpectraLink allows organizations to provide voice priority mechanisms on their wireless network. Support for voice priority with SpectraLink will provide.

Complies with industry security standards for wireless data encryption, and user authorization. 802.11i, WPA2 Enterprise provides enhanced, interoperable wireless networking security. WPA and 802.1x support enables strong mutual authentication to ensure that only legitimate clients associate with corporate RADIUS servers. Supports MAC address authentication with 256-user Access Control List (ACL) and VPN pass-through.

Integrated IEEE 802.3af-based Power over Ethernet (PoE) support eliminates extra cables and the need to locate near a power outlet, as the access point is powered over the Ethernet cable. Supports Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) MIB I, MIB II, and 802.11 MIB using SNMP-based network management software, such as HP OpenView™. Supports all popular 802.1x port-based authentication protocols, including Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) Transport Layer Security (TLS), Protected EAP (PEAP), and Tunneled TLS (TTLS). Console port facilitates local configuration and monitoring. Users can remotely configure, update, and monitor multiple WG302s simultaneously via FTP.

IEEE 802.11g wireless standard – with optional speeds of up to 108 Mbps – takes care of business communications with great dispatch and skill. Delivers functionality for point-to-point and point-to-multi-point bridging and repeater modes.

Cost effective, simple to install and use. Plenum rated – appropriate for placement above dropdown ceilings and under raised floors. Equipped with convenient Smart Wizard™ browser-based interface. Fitted with two external, detachable 5 dBi antennas – obtain NETGEAR's antenna and flexible point placement accessories separately for expanded wireless capacity and range. IEEE 802.11 e-based Quality of Service (QoS) support makes it easy to handle Voice over IP (VoIP) and multimedia applications. Protected with a NETGEAR Lifetime warranty.
