The WAP3205 is more than just another 300Mbps access point; it's a multifunction 11n tool that can be used in a variety of scenarios. In addition to Access Point mode, it can also be a Universal Wireless Repeater, extending the range of your existing network. Unlike other repeaters, the WAP3205's extender mode works with the latest WPA/WPA2 security technologies, so security doesn't have to suffer when extending your network. The WAP3205 also has the ability to function as a wireless bridge, allowing you to connect non-wireless network compatible devices to your existing network. Simply plug in your Ethernet based TIVO, Smart TV, Blue Ray player, and network storage device (NAS).
