RangeBooster technology is a compatible add-on to standard Wireless-G that can nearly double your wireless network's range and increase its throughput by up to 35 percent. Unlike ordinary wireless technologies that are confused by signal reflections, RangeBooster uses two smart receivers at each end to detect and decode reflected signals at distances where standard technologies give up. You'll find that "dead spots" in the wireless coverage area are reduced, too.
The advanced security features make this solution ideal for your business. Advanced wireless security using Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA2) with up to 256-bit encryption, and Wireless Security Monitoring give your business the visibility and protection it needs. Used when Cisco® WUSB 200, WMP200 or WPC200 Wireless adapters are present, Wireless Security Monitoring alerts you of possible wireless intruders and vulnerabilities in the wireless deployment and gives you visibility into denial-of-service attacks.
The Cisco WAP200 Wireless-G Access Point (Figure 1) lets you connect Wireless-G (802.11g) or Wireless-B (802.11b) devices to your wired network so you can add PCs to the network with no cabling hassle. Power over Ethernet (PoE) support makes it easy to install - you can mount the access point anywhere, even without ready access to a power plug. With appropriate PoE support at the other end, you need to run only one cable to the access point to deliver both data and power. Of course, you can also use the included AC adapter if power is available nearby.
The integrated quality of service (QoS) features provide consistent voice and video quality on both the wired and wireless networks, enabling the deployment of business-quality voice over IP (VoIP) and video applications.
Additional features like multiple basic service set identifiers (BSSIDs), wireless roaming, and auto-channel selection, make this solution ideal for your business.

Wireless Security Monitor
Scan and classify wireless devices in the network
Report new client and access point joining network and suspicious network events (works together with Cisco WUSB 200, WMP200 or WPC200 business client adapters):
• Intrusion alarms (e.g., rogue client detected, spoofed MAC address)
• Denial-of-service alarms (e.g., duration attack, association table full)
• Vulnerability alarms (e.g., access point is not using encryption, access point is broadcasting SSID)
• Other alarms (e.g., low speed connection)
