Product: Micronica WiP-500plus
Micronica SOHOmate WiP-500+ is a Router/Bridge/Access Point and Internet Sharing device with built in Ethernet Ports and Wireless WiFi Access Point. Suitable for Broadband ADSL and Cable Modems and short to long range wireless bridge applications from 100m up to 10km with appropriate optional external antenna. It includes a combined 4 port 10/100 dual-speed switch hub, Wireless Access Point and printer sharer for USB printers.
Micronica WiP-500+ simply plugs into your existing LAN or WAN network connection or broadband ADSL or Cable Modem. WiP-500+ works with all popular Broadband service providers including Optus and Telstra ADSL and Cable Modem services. We have developed special firmware specifically for the Australian market to handle your Telstra Cable Modem and ADSL as well as your Optus Cable Modem. Without the need to run a special login client on your computer. It meets the tricky "heartbeat" signal negotiation requirement which other similar products can not properly do.
The built in 4 Port 10/100 switch hub also allows not only internet sharing but also file sharing between connected computers. Making it an excellent long term investment. The Micronica WiP-500+ lets you enter your username and password and then keeps the connection alive 24x7 without needing to keep your computers on. Or set the timeout to disconnet automatically if you prefer.
WiP-500+ can be configured in various ways to act as a Wireless Internet Sharer, Router, Bridge, Repeater, Printserver or Firewall to bridge two existing wired networks or extend the range of an existing WiFi Network. So now one product can be configured in various ways depending on your application. Including long distance wireless bridge with an external antenna allowing a range of several km between locations.
Security features and functionality is outstanding. The security options cover just about every measure available and include all the latest encryption and security features anyone could ask for. And provision to either turn wireless SSID off or even turn off the wireless completely to allow reversion to totally secure non wireless operation and thereby enhance security in situations where wireless is not required or permitted.
All up Micronica WiP-500+ provides the ideal all-in-one networking solution to facilitate most flexible network connectivity and share office printer resources. Its efficiency boosting features will increase effectiveness and save cost in any working environment. It includes the following functions:
