D-Link Releases 802.11b 22Mpbs Wireless Range Extender

D-Link today announced immediate availability of the first 802.11b+ 22Mbps Wireless Range Extender and Access Point, the D-Link AirPlus DWL-800AP+. The new D-Link Wireless Range Extender includes a repeater function to increase the wireless range in large homes and buildings. Operating in the 2.4GHz frequency range, D-Link’s DWL-800AP+ is an access point with a wireless repeating function that extends the range of the wireless network by up to 50%.

The D-Link AirPlus Wireless Range Extender provides a repeater signal when deployed in conjunction with either a wireless router or a second wireless access point. The repeater function allows the D-Link DWL-800AP+ to receive a signal from a wireless router or access point at up to 328 feet away and then to rebroadcast it to wireless clients on the outside edge of the network, creating a stronger and faster connection for those clients. When set to run in the enhanced 802.11b mode on a D-Link AirPlus network, the DWL-800AP+ delivers even higher performance at greater distances.

“This D-Link range extender is a great way to drive the signal 50% further,” said Steven Joe, President of D-Link. “The combination of low price, high speed and an easy installation procedure make the Wireless Range Extender an exceptional value where any Wi-Fi network requires extra distance.”

The repeater function of the AirPlus DWL-800AP+ supports wireless routers and access points in the D-Link AirPlus line of wireless networking products as well as the enhanced 802.11b+ side of the D-Link AirPro line of dual band products. When using the Wireless Range Extender as a repeater with D-Link AirPlus and dual mode AirPro routers and access points, little configuration is necessary. Users simply plug in the device at the edge of the existing wireless network’s range.

The D-Link AirPlus DWL-800AP+ is an enhanced 2.4GHz 802.11b wireless access point that is easily setup and managed through a convenient Web-based interface. MAC address authentication and 64/128/256-bit WEP encryption are included to provide security for data and wireless communications. The Wireless Range Extender has a high-performance omni-directional detachable antenna as well as power and link status/activity LEDs for at-a-glance diagnostics. The access point mode of the DWL-800AP+ is completely compatible with any IEEE 802.11b standard wireless client.

Price and Availability

The D-Link AirPlus DWL-800AP+ Enhanced 2.4GHz Wireless Range Extender is available now through authorized retail, reseller, and distribution partners at a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price MSRP of $99. The D-Link DWL-800AP+ comes with a Three Year Warranty and absolutely FREE 24/7 Technical Support including software and firmware updates.
