What can this access point do for me?
Upgrade your home or office network with the latest generation of dual-band 802.11ac access points - which offers combined speeds of up to 1900Mbps and is suited to serve multiple devices at the same time. The 5GHz band (1300Mbps) is ideal for Ultra-HD streaming video and online gaming, while the 2.4GHz band (600Mbps) is there for your everyday internet needs, like sending email and browsing the internet. The 1GHz dual-core processor improves efficiency and performance by dividing tasks between the cores, effectively allowing multiple tasks to be carried out simultaneously. This ensures great performance, even when the AP500 is serving multiple devices and complex tasks at the same time.

How can this access point be used?
This access point has multiple operation modes, meaning a variety of operation modes provide flexible solutions that are sure to meet the wireless needs in any situation. 'AP' mode (default mode), accepts an existing wired connection and creates a Wi-Fi network, allowing you to connect all of your favourite wireless devices. 'Repeater/Bridge' mode expands coverage and transmits wireless signals into previously unreachable areas. 'Client' mode acts as a wireless adaptor, allowing you to connect your wired device to a wireless network. 'Multi-SSID' mode simultaneously supports up to four separate SSIDs and VLANs, making it ideal for offices where different departments share a Wi-Fi network.

How easy is the access point to set up?
The AP500's powerful web interface allows it to be set up and configured in a matter of minutes. The intuitive design makes installation faster and easier than ever and allows users to monitor and personalise settings for a wide range of functions. The TP-Link access point can be mains powered or powered passively via means of a Power over Ethernet (PoE) injector. With a maximum range of up to 30 metres (100ft) when running PoE, you can position the access point further away and maximise the efficiency and range of your wireless network. Once in position and connected to a router or network switch, you are able to discover your wireless access point from your portable device. Alternatively, the inclusion of a WPS button allows for quick pairing of devices.
