What is RangeMax Wireless Access Point?
A Wireless Access Point is a device that acts as a communication hub for users of a wireless device to connect to a wired Local Area Network. Access Points are important for providing heightened wireless security and for extending the physical range of service a wireless user has access to.

NETGEAR's RangeMax Wireless Access Point extends your Ethernet business network with wireless coverage up to 10 times that of standard 802.11g, thanks to an advanced Smart MIMO (Multi-In, Multi-Out) technology that incorporates seven "intelligent" internal antennas. The antennas continuously scan your office, automatically sensing physical obstacles and electronic interference, then dynamically adjust the wireless signal to compensate and maintain a clear connection. So if you carry your laptop to a room with a microwave oven, or someone starts talking on a cell phone, RangeMax detects the change and adapts with over 100 possible antenna configurations. It's the perfect way to extend Ethernet networks with the power of RangeMax, so everyone enjoys reliable high-speed wireless connections, with no dropouts, and no dead spots.

Maximum Performance Achieved When Used with RangeMax Wireless Adapters

Extended Coverage. Consistent Connection. Faster Speeds.
By using multiple simultaneous signals to overcome interference, RangeMax Wireless Access Point boosts network coverage throughout the entire business. What's more, it maintains much faster wireless connections at distances where a standard g signal fades and degrades.
