* Top of the line security with WPA2 and 802.1x support

Improved Network Speed and Coverage
The ZyXEL NWA570N is a Four-in-one 802.11n Draft 2.0 Wireless Access Point, can be operated in one of the following 4 modes, including AP, client, repeater and point to point bridge. Unlike ordinary wireless networking technologies, draft 802.11n uses the reflections to increase the range and reduce "dead zone" in the wireless coverage area. NWA570N provides wireless delivery rates of up to 300Mbps and 4x farther coverage than 802.11g connection. It is designed for users that demand high speed data and multimedia delivery in order to get a better Internet experience with a faster wireless connection to enjoy downloading, video streaming and gaming. It can be also backward compatible with 802.11g and 802.11b wireless networks.

Enhanced Wireless Security and Privacy
In addition to the basic 64/128/152-bit WEP encryption, the NWA570N features the latest wireless security mechanisms to protect your network with 802.1x authentication and Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key (WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK). These enhanced security functions allow only authorized users to access the network, thus further protecting your data from being tapped during wireless transmission.

Simplify Network Security Setup with One-Touch
NWA570N supports Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) to simplify network security setup. Users no longer have to define a network identifier (SSID) and pass phrase to enable WPA security; instead, NWA570N will automatically generate SSIDs and PIN codes. In place of entering a pass phrase, users can authenticate a new device on the network by pressing a button or by entering an automatically generated 4-digit or 8-digit PIN code. With the button option, users only need to press a button on the device and on the AP simultaneously in order to complete the authentication.

Three External Detachable Antennas
The detachable antenna allows you to replace the standard antenna with a reverse SMA connector antenna. It also has the flexibility to meet user demands if high-gain antenna replacements are required.
