Short Distance

on 1/24/2008

It took two calls to tech support to find out that I had to change the channel on my router from Automatic to any specific channel number and that the WET200 had to be set to the same channel before I was able to establish a connection. Once I got it set it up, I then moved it to an adjacent guest house about 70 feet away from the router. I was unable to connect at 70 feet! I'm going to try moving it but it seems that I will have to use a second WET200 hard wired to the router to get the distance down to about 40 feet.

Working well.

on 5/15/2008

Used in a warehouse to connect a pc and a network printer to the network. Setup was easy, speed is acceptable. Zero maintenance. When I was configuring it I was able to pick up another wireless network in the next building at least 70' away, probably more.

Product Overview

The Cisco® WET200 Wireless-G Business Ethernet Bridge transparently bridges separate Ethernet networks together wirelessly and is ideal for small businesses with offices and resources that are in different office suites of a building or in closely adjacent buildings. The WET200 is a Power over Ethernet (PoE) end device, so it can be installed anywhere an Ethernet cable can be run if there is no ready access to a power outlet. PoE enables delivery of both data and power to the Cisco WET200. An AC adapter is also included for use if the device installation site has a power outlet nearby.

Advanced security features include Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA2) with up to 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption using Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP), giving small businesses the protection they need to communicate and transfer data securely. 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 support for VLANs, Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), Spanning Tree Protocol, and port mirroring make this an ideal solution for network administrators to incorporate into larger organizations.
