Take wireless connectivity to the great outdoors - through rain, snow or other extreme conditions - with this StarTech R300WN22MOD5 IP67-certified wireless access point. Tough and dependable, the 5GHz wireless AP lets you create or extend your wireless coverage, using an existing wired or wireless network, to connect across large open spaces and maximize throughput in your Wi-Fi network.
Built to withstand extreme elements
Provide your visitors, clients or employees with reliable outdoor access to the Internet. Engineered with a die-cast metal housing, this weather-proof wireless AP has one of the industry's highest IP ratings. IP67 certified, it provides exceptional protection against water and dust, including water ingress protection for 30 minutes in up to 3 feet of water.
The outdoor AP is built to withstand extreme weather conditions and temperatures, with a wide operating range of -30° to 60°C (-22° to 140°F). Heavy-duty cable grommets and rubber gaskets seal the ports against moisture penetration during rainy or humid conditions.
Reliable wireless performance and range
This wireless access point is an effective way to create or expand your wireless network, with a range of up to 3.7 kms or 2.3 miles. It helps to eliminate dead spots, to maximize throughput and speed throughout the coverage area. You can connect two buildings several kilometers away from each other, to provide reliable Internet access.
The AP operates on the 5GHz frequency band, and allows wireless access for up to 32 clients simultaneously (802.11a/n). You can also set up multiple access points to provide reliable Wi-Fi access for additional clients at the same time. The 5GHz network is less congested and operates on a larger bandwidth, allowing for greater speeds than the 2.4 GHz band. With support for Wireless-N, the AP provides fast data transfer speeds of up to 300Mbps, ideal for streaming high definition video, voice and music.
Versatile use, outdoors or indoors
With its robust performance and range, this AP supports wireless connections in numerous applications - for small and medium sized businesses, campuses, recreational facilities and backyard residential settings. It allows you to easily extend your wireless network to include outdoor meeting spaces, patios, cafes, green spaces, parking lots and adjacent buildings. Dust-tight and waterproof, the AP is also ideal for harsh indoor environments like warehouses, factories and other industrial settings.
For versatile use, the device provides four operating modes: Access Point (AP), Wireless Distribution System (WDS), Wireless Internet Service Provider (WISP) Bridge and Repeater, and Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) WISP Bridge and Repeater. The WDS mode allows you to expand your wireless coverage by bridging multiple WDS access points together. Using the WISP mode, you can connect two LAN segments wirelessly. The CPE modes let you connect two LAN segments over a wired connection.
Easy set-up and installation
Since it's PoE powered, the outdoor wireless AP can be installed practically anywhere, with no need for a wall outlet. (A Power-over-Ethernet injector is included.) You can mount the AP on a pole or flush against a wall or soffit. PoE pass-through via the secondary LAN port lets you chain and power a secondary R300WN22MOD access point.
The Setup Wizard, a web-based configuration utility, makes it easy to get started and lets you customize your wireless network to your own needs.
