Entry-Level Wireless Access Point

Managed 802.11n Business-class Wireless Access Point

Vigor AP-710 Wireless Access Point
The DrayTek Vigor AP-710 is a standalone wireless access point, ideal for adding wireless connectivity to an existing LAN, or for expanding the range of an existing wireless LAN by using the WDS features.

Vigor AP-710 Wireless Access Point
The DrayTek Vigor AP-710 is a standalone wireless access point, ideal for adding wireless connectivity to an existing LAN, or for expanding the range of an existing wireless LAN by using the WDS features.

As an access point, the Vigor AP-710 connects to your existing ethernet switch or router. Wireless users can then connect to your LAN. You can restrict access to specific devices by locking in their hardware 'MAC address' and if you have a radius server, user access can be further limited requiring unique login using 802.1x authentication (MD5/PEAP mode).

Where you wish to provide wireless access over a larger area, or throughout a larger building, you could install several AP-710's, each wired back to your central network. The AP-710 also supports limited functions within DrayTek's Wireless management system.

In addition, the AP-710 can operate in several other wireless modes:

Access Point - Standard Operation, as described above
Universal Repeater - The AP-710 acts as both a wireless client and access point simultaneously, effectively increasing the range of an existing access point.
Bridge - Using two AP-710's, each connected to a separate wired LAN, a wireless bridge can be formed connecting the two LANs. Ideal where a physical link (cable) isn't possible, for example, across a road.
Station - The AP-710 acts as a wireless client to another wireless access point. Ideal for games consoles or PCs which need a self-contained 'intelligent' wireless interface with connectivity provided via their Ethernet point.
For illustrations of each of these modes, click on the 'Schematics' tab of this page.

Operation Mode Schematics

The DrayTek AP-710 can act as a standalone wireless access point, ideal for adding wireless connectivity to an existing LAN but also operates in several other wireless modes:

Bridge

AP710 Modes Bridge

Two networks can be bridged where it is not possible to run cables, for example, across a road (assuming sites are within wireless range of each other). Both locations remain within the same IP subnet.

Universal Repeater

AP710 Modes Repeater

The AP-710 is placed within wireless range of another access point and can then extend the coverage of that network.

Station

AP710 Modes Station

Ideal for gaming consoles or other devices that need an ethernet connection to the network, Station mode makes the AP-710 act as a client to your main access point.

Standard WDS

AP710 Modes WDS

User Authentication

For additional security, wireless access can be restricted to authorised users only by use of a unique username and password for each user. This is in addition the encryption provided by WEP/WPA etc. When the user first opens their wireless connection, the AP-710 will request their username/password and not permit access to the LAN or Internet without it.

The AP-710 can use an external radius server to hold user credentials but also has its own built-in radius server to store up to 96 users. The AP-710's built-in Radius server can also act as a server to additional devices (such as another AP-710, meaning that you don't need to set up the same users up on several units).
