WL-5470AP
802.11g Hi Power Multifunction AP/Router
5-port Hi-Power AP
he WL-5470AP is a multi-function AP designed
for various different wireless applications. On the
hardware side, it features 5 LAN ports and hardware
hi-power amplifier that can boost the output power
from standard 18dBm to over 25dBm*. On the software
front, the WL-5470AP includes both powerful features
and an easy-to-use interface to satisfy the demand of
WISP operators, Home, or Office users.

8 Wireless Operating Modes
The WL-5470AP features an incredible 8-mode firmware.
AP mode
The most basic mode of multi-function Access Point. In this mode, the AP will
act as a central hub for different Wireless LAN clients. Some hotspot APs
requires 802.1x authenticator function to authenticate a user before
providing Internet service.
Client Mode
Also known as Ethernet Client. In this mode, the AP will act as a WLAN card
to connect with the remote AP. Users can connect PC or local LAN to the
Ethernet port of the client mode AP. This mode is mostly used as a CPE device
for WISP subscriber.

Bridge mode
In this mode, 2 access points in two remote locations connect to each other
to provide a wireless bridge between 2 remote LANs. It is mostly used by
enterprise to connect 2 remote office's network together. The bridge modes
are connected by using either the WDS (Wireless Distribution System) or
Adhoc topology

WDS Repeater
A repeater's function is to extend the wireless coverage of another wireless
AP or router. For WDS repeater to work, the remote wireless AP/Router must
also support WDS function.

Universal Repeater
An universal repeater can also extend the wireless coverage of another
wireless AP or router. But the universal repeater does not require the remote
device to have WDS function. Therefore, it can work with almost any
wireless device.
WISP (Client Router) mode
In WISP mode, the AP will behave just the same as the Client mode for
wireless function. However, router functions are added between the wireless
WAN side and the Ethernet LAN side. Therefore, the WISP subscriber can
share the WISP connection without the need for extra router.

AP + Router mode
In AP + Router mode. The AP will behave like a broadband router. One of the
LAN port will behave as a WAN port for wired connection to ADSL or Cable
modem. The NAT routing will be performed between the WAN and LAN port.
Making IP sharing possible.

WISP + Universal Repeater mode
In this mode, the AP behaves virtually the same as the WISP mode, except
one thing: the AP can also send wireless signal to the LAN side. That means
the AP can connect with the remote WISP AP and the indoor wireless card,
and then provide IP sharing capability all at the same time! However, the
output power is divided between 2 wireless side and proper antenna
installation can influence the performance greatly.

WDS Site Survey and Universal Site
Survey
The WL-5470AP adds WDS and Universal Site
Survey to make bridge and repeater configuration
much easier. Now you no longer have to look
around for remote AP’s MAC address to establish
a bridge connection.
Boot loader Protection
The WL-5470AP feature the boot loader
protection. Even if the machine’s firmware
crashed during firmware upgrade, the users can
still recover the AP. This makes WL-5470AP
much more reliable than other Realtek 8186
based AP.
Wireless Client Isolation
The WL-5470AP features the new Wireless Client
Isolation function previous available only in more
expensive APs. When you enable this function,
the wireless clients will not be able to see each
other. Therefore, it is an important function for
office and Hotspot operator to protect the security
between different wireless users.
ACK Timeout and TX Power Regulation
The WL-5470AP features ACK timeout function
to let you adjust the timeout value for long
distance operation. In addition, 5-level TX power
adjustment let you match different antennas for
law compliance. The ability to set lower TX output
power is also crucial if you want to match the AP
with external power amplifier.
Extended Security Features
The WL-5470AP support WEP, WPA and WPA2
security functions. In addition, WPA enterprise
for 802.1x authenticator are featured for AP and
WDS mode. The combination of Encryption, Hide
SSID and Access Control ensures your wireless
network is completely secured from intruder.
The WL-5470AP
WL-5470AP’ss firmware features list
are much longer than what has been
described. Better yet, AirLive is known to
continuous upgrade the firmware for new
features. Whether it's for WISP, Hotspot,
or Home uses, the WL-5470AP is perfect
for everyone.
* The TX output power is limited to 20dBm in EU,
23dBm in U.S., and 27dBm in South America
