wAP (black edition)

The wAP is a small weatherproof wireless access point for your mobile devices - perfect for installation outside your house, in the garden, on your porch or anywhere else where you need wireless access from your phone or computer.

The device has one 10/100 Ethernet port, it supports 802.11b/g/n wireless standards. It looks unobtrusive and sleek, available in two colours - black (RBwAP2nD-BE) and white (RBwAP2nD).

The wAP is weatherproof and can be fixed to any external wall from the inside of the case - so that it is securely attached to it's mounting location. The bottom door can also be secured with a special screw, which can only be opened by the owner.

It is also possible to run the Ethernet cable directly behind the unit, to inside the wall, there is a special opening on the back of the case. This way, the unit doesn’t attract attention and blends into any environment.

  1. All tests are done with Xena Networks specialized test equipment (XenaBay),and done according to RFC2544 (Xena2544)
  2. Max throughput is determined with 30+ second attempts with 0,1% packet loss tolerance in 64, 512, 1518 byte packet sizes
  3. Values in Italic indicate that max throughput was reached without maxing out CPU, but because board interface configuration was maxed out
  4. Test results show device maximum performance, and are reached using mentioned hardware and software configuration, different configurations most likely will result in lower results
