We have chosen another product of TP-Link as the best wireless access point for the home. With a white finish, the rectangular-shaped device has a very simple design. You can find a small, narrow LED light on the device. It is a thick device, made of durable plastic. At the base part, there are ventilation grills for avoiding overheating issues. The presence of these holes indicates that the manufacturer has designed the device for indoor use.
This reliable access point has Qualcomm Atheros QCA9563 and QCA9982 chips. With a speed of 1,300 Mbps, you will be able to transfer the data.
There are also integrated Omni Antennas that radiate RF electromagnetic fields in every horizontal direction. Most of the Windows versions (7, 8, Vista, 10, and XP) work with this wireless device. You will also get a free software application, working as Auranet Controller. Use this software for monitoring and managing the EAPs very easily from one location.
Other kits, included in the package are a POE switch and one Gigabit Ethernet port. The device also integrates a Band Steering that has the capability of moving the dual-band units automatically on the 5GHz radio band. This is effective to make Internet connections much faster. For the authentication of the guests, the manufacturer has integrated a captive portal.
