But it conjointly has an RJ-45 (Ethernet) connector on it thus you’ll be able to use this to plug in items that don’t have wireless capability however do have wired. This unit will give them wireless capability.

It very is simple to set one of these up. It’s a fairly compact case – regarding the dimensions of a large wall-wart with the antennas already attached.

And firmware updates.

Also, the “Wireless intruders also show up here” bit isn’t any joke. The power to examine that list will let you see who might be interloping. It’s a nice diagnostic. But the WN3000RP permits you to lock it down where you should never see a interloper in the slightest degree if you so choose.

The wireless extender signal can accommodate multiple clients and as mentioned, the wired RJ-45 port will accommodate wired network devices and even the uplink or WAN ports of another router/switch if you wanted to use this to bridge networks wirelessly or turn a wired network security camera into a wireless one.
