About the Device
ALLNET ALL0236R Portable 300Mbps Wireless-N Extender supports wireless
802.11b/g/n standards with one 10/100Base-T Ethernet port.
ALL0236R is designed with MIMO technology to extend the reach of any existing
wireless router/AP to maximize the coverage in your home or office. It basically receives the
signal from your wireless router/AP and repeats it to extend the range to farther locations that are
previously unreachable.
Equipped with 64/128-bit WEP, WIFI Protected Access (WPA), and the latest WPA2
encryption with TKIP and AES algorithm to protect your wireless network from unauthorized
access. MAC Address Filtering for wireless links provides an additional layer of security for your
wireless network.
The device comes with 1 x 10/100M Auto MDI/MDIx Ethernet port that can be used to
connect to an existing wired network to serve as a wireless AP or wireless bridge. It can also be
used to configure the device via its web-based GUI, or upgrade the firmware when connected to
the Network Interface Card of your PC.

where you have good wireless reception and weak or no wireless signal at all. Based from this
assessment you may place the wireless extender in between a location where you have good
wireless reception and where you have poor wireless coverage. The illustration below is an
example of a network diagram.
