Yes / No Overview Linksys LAPN300 Business Wireless-N300 Access Point Provide your business with better wireless connectivity using the Linksys LAPN300 Business Wireless-N300 Access Point with PoE. Well suited for small- to medium-sized offices, the LAPN300 offers a streamlined way to provide Wi-Fi access for those on mobile devices or extend the range of your existing wireless network. Power over Ethernet (PoE) lets you pass electrical power and data through one cable, while advanced security protocols help keep your network safe. At a Glance: Single wireless band (2.4 GHz) and transfer rates up to 300 Mbps Gigabit Ethernet port for fast wired connection Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology to pass power and data through one cable Workgroup bridge mode for wireless range extension Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA/WPA2) and other advanced security features Supports IPv6 for Internet traffic routing Whats in the Box: Linksys LAPN300 Business Wireless-N300 Access Point with PoE Quick-start guide Ethernet cable AC power adapter Documentation CD Mounting bracket Mounting kit screws Ceiling mount back plate Drilling layout template Additional Features Wireless Access for Improved Office Networking With the LAPN300, you can easily connect notebooks, smartphones, tablets, and other Wi-Fi devices within your place of business. This wireless access point features a single wireless band (2.4 GHz) and delivers data transfer rates up to 300 Mbps for optimal performance. A Gigabit Ethernet port provides a fast connection between the LAPN300 and your wired network. Optimal Wireless Coverage and Flexible Deployment Featuring Wireless-N technology, the LAPN300 can provide better, wider wireless coverage within your office–particularly for those using Wi-Fi-enabled devices in hard-to-reach areas of the building. For optimal flexibility, and to suit the needs of your business, this device can be deployed as a typical access point or set up as a workgroup bridge to extend your wireless range. Power over Ethernet Capability for Ease of Use For simplicity, the LAPN300 sports 802.3af/802.3at Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology, which passes both electrical power and data to the device through one Ethernet cable, without needing a separate power adapter or a nearby electrical outlet. An intuitive Web-based interface makes the LAPN300 easy for administrators to set up and use. Captive Portal for Guest Wi-Fi Access Control guest Wi-Fi access with a captive portal, which routes users to a special web page for authentication before using the Internet. Use the captive portal for secure and customized access from Wi-Fi hotspots such as meeting rooms, cafes, or courtyards. Clustering for Single Point Control Thanks to Clustering, you can easily manage multiple wireless access points with single point control. This feature reduces costs and simplifies ongoing management of your wireless access points. Advanced Security to Protect Your Network To help keep your companys wireless network safe, the LAPN300 features Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) and Wi-Fi Protected Access II (WPA2) security protocols, as well as 802.1X with RADIUS, or Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service, which provides administrators with a centralized way to authenticate users on the network. Other security technologies built into the LAPN300 include Rogue AP Detection, which helps administrators identify authorized access points on the network; MAC address filtering to authorize or block particular devices based on their MAC address; SSID to VLAN mapping for connectivity; Wireless Broadcast Scheduling for transmitting packets of data to all devices on the network; and 802.1X Supplicant, which allows the access point to gain access to a secured wired network. Product Information: This wireless access point measures 243.08 x 236.98 x 43.69 millimeters (L x W x H) and weighs 489.88 grams/1.08 pounds. It supports Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) for routing Internet traffic. Disclaimers Maximum performance derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Actual performance can vary, including lower wireless network capacity, data throughput rate, range, and coverage. Performance depends on many factors, conditions, and variables, including distance from the access point, volume of network traffic, building materials and construction, operating system used, mix of wireless products used, interference, and other adverse conditions.
