Netgear WG602 54 Mbps Wireless Access Point

Up to 5x Faster and Backward Compatible with 802.11b Wireless Networks
NETGEAR's WG602 Wireless Access Point lets you add IEEE 802.11g wireless access to your network. With its high-speed data transmission of up to 54 Mbps network users can share a broadband Internet connection, access e-mail, download large files, videoconference, and distribute and play digital images, videos, and MP3 files. Easy to set up and use, NETGEAR's Smart Wizard install assistant makes installations a cinch. And with Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA2-PSK) security, you can rest assured that your wireless network communications are private.

Simultaneously supports both IEEE 802.11b and 802.11g standard devices and networks. This dual mode capability protects your 802.11b wireless investment and, at the same time, has you ready for the up to five times faster 802.11g. Provides connectivity to a wired or wireless network for expanded bandwidth. Higher speeds expedite large file downloads and facilitate videoconferencing and the distribution and playing of high-quality multimedia content.

Provides the highest available level of industry-standard WEP encryption: 128-bit for both 802.11b and 802.11g devices. MAC address authentication offers enhanced security by ensuring only authorized users can access the network. Wi-Fi Protected Access using a pre-shared key WPA2-PSK is also supported.

Connect two LANS wirelessly using the bridge mode. Extend your wireless signal by adding a WG602 in repeater mode. Dynamic rate shifting according to environmental conditions achieves the fastest possible connections. Thorough testing ensures quality and reliable operation, which NETGEAR backs up with a solid 1-year warranty.
