This is a typical SMC product - great hardware with lower quaility software/drivers. Once configured, it works like a charm. However, if you have an existing network using an IP range other than what this defaults to, you are in for a heck of a time. Do not even attempt the installation with the software in the box. Download the latest from the web site.
Again, the hardware is great. Connections and speed are what you always expected wireless to be. Being on the 5Ghz band reduces interference tremendously versus the 2.4Ghz for 802.11b, 802.11g, and almost all cordless phones.
This is a bargain if you know what you're doing. Not for the faint of heart.
The SMC EZ Connect 802.11a Wireless Access Point (SMC2755W) is based on the new IEEE 802.11a wireless standard and provides the perfect wireless connectivity for both home and business users. Using an enhanced "turbo mode" feature, this new Wireless Access Point can transfer data at speeds up to 72Mbps, which is 7-times faster than 802.11b-based devices, and can also support a maximum operating range up to 1,650 feet. By using a built-in Web-based interface, you can configure and manage the new SMC EZ Connect 802.11a Access Point to successfully integrate a high-speed wireless connection into your existing wired network.
The SMC EZ Connect 802.11a Wireless Access Point (SMC2755W) supports up to 64 simultaneous wireless network connections and is fast enough to replace a wired connection. To provide network security, this new 802.11a Access Point supports encryption using both 64-bit and 128-bit WEP, and provides an extra security feature with 152-bit WEP. Designed to operate in the 5GHz frequency spectrum, this Access Point can communicate without interference from other devices, such as 802.11b devices, Bluetooth products, and cordless phones, which communicate in the crowded 2.4GHz range. The SMC EZ Connect Wireless Access Point provides connections at such an amazing speed that it can handle such applications as streaming video, voice communication, and other bandwidth-intensive programs. Combine these features with simple Plug-and-Play support and Web-based management and you have the perfect solution for any of your wireless network needs.
