1.0 Scope
1.1 Document
The DWL-3200AP is the ideal solution for any network administrator who needs to expand the capacity of
the wireless network. This is especially applicable to wireless networks in high traffic areas such as airports,
coffee shops, shopping centers, sporting venues, and university campus deployments.
At transfer rates of up to 54Mbps and 108Mbps turbo mode in the 2.4GHz frequency range, users connected
to the DWL-3200AP will enjoy faster downloads and truly instant email communication.
In addition to bridging 802.11b/g wireless networks, the DWL-3200AP can bridge to wired networks with its
integrated 10/100M Ethernet port.
For more secure communication, the DWL-3200AP supports the encryption settings up to 152-bit WEP, and
advanced security of WPA and AES. With its web-based configuration the DWL-3200AP is easy to install,
alter or activate advanced setting, or update with the latest firmware.
