Simply plug in your Ethernet based TIVO, Smart TV, Blue Ray player, network storage device (NAS), or game system into the WAP3205, and it can now join your wireless network. No software or drivers to be installed. With an 11n compatible data transfer rate of up to 300Mbps*, which is 6 times faster than 11g, you can enjoy high-speed network connection and high-definition video streaming with no jitters or dropped calls.

It also works with your existing 802.11b and 802.11g network devices. Some wired devices such as modems, set-top boxes, digital media adapters and storage devices might not be natively wireless capable. In order to connect these without additional wiring, driver installation or configuration, just plug the Ethernet cable into the WAP3205 and connect to another wired device to get connected wirelessly. With the built-in Universal Repeater mode, WAP3205 can connect to most popular access points or wireless routers while simultaneously acting as an access point to provide wireless connectivity to all other wireless devices such as notebooks. In other words, WAP3205 can extend the wireless coverage to the entire home premise and enable all wireless devices to link to the existing network this is especially helpful for larger home environments.

Multiple SSID for different access privileges
The ZyXEL WAP3205 can allow different groups of users to access different networks through the multiple SSID support. Instead of supporting only one type of application, users can assign different policies and functions to each SSID, and thus increase the flexibility and efficiency of the network infrastructure. For example, users can assign two sets of policies to two SSIDs: one for private access and the other for guest or public access; when the guests connect to the wireless network, they can’t connect to network storage devices or other private wireless devices under a pre-defined SSID security policy. The WAP3205 makes it easy to deploy one wireless network while fulfilling various requirements of security and privacy.

One-touch WPS button for easy wireless security setup
Equipped with a Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) push button, the WAP3205 makes establishing a secure wireless network easy. The WPS takes only a few seconds to set up a secure wireless network without any complicated procedures.
