Introduction
At up to fifteen times the speed of previous wireless devices (up to 108Mbps inSuper G mode), you can work faster and more efficiently, increasing productivity. With the DWL2100AP, bandwidth-intensive applications like graphics or multimedia will benefit significantly because large files are able to move across the network quickly. The DWL-2100AP is capable of operating in one of 5 different modes to meet your wireless networking needs. The DWL-2100AP can operate as an accesspoint; in access point-to-access point bridging mode; access point-to-multipoint bridging mode; wireless client mode; or repeater. The DWL-2100AP is an ideal solution for quickly creating and extending a wireless local area network (WLAN) in offices or other workplaces, trade shows and special events. Unlike most access points, the DWL-2100AP provides data transfers at up to 108 Mbps TM in Super Gmode when used with other D-Link AirPlus Xtreme G products. The 802.11g standard is backwards compatible with 802.11b devices. The DWL-2100AP has the newest, strongest, most advanced security features available today. When used with other 802.11g WPA (WiFi Protected Access) compatible products in a network with a RADIUS server, the security features include: WPA: Wi-Fi Protected Access whichauthorizes and identifies users based on a secret key that changes automatically at regular intervals. WPA uses TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) to change the temporal key every 10,000 packets (a packet is a kind of message transmitted over a network.) This insures much greater security than the standard WEP security. (By contrast, the previous WEP encryption implementation required the keys tobe changed manually.)

For home users that will not incorporate a RADIUS server in their network, the security for the DWL-2100AP, used in conjunction with other WPA-compatible 802.11 products, will still be much stronger than ever before. Utilizing the Pre-Shared Key mode of WPA, the DWL-2100AP will obtain a new security key every time it connects to the 802.11 network. You only need to input...
