date added: 2009-09-13

The NWA-3166 is a 3-in-1 Hybrid AP including AP controller mode, managed AP mode and stand-alone AP mode. It provides centralized management for up to 24 WLAN access points. This AP supports WEP and WPA/WPA2 wireless encryption and uses WMM (QoS) to prioritize traffic over the network. It is also equipped with PoE (Power-over-Ethernet) capabilities designed for small to medium enterprises.

The AP also has what ZyXEL calls "load balancing" which actually lets you specify a hard limit on the number of wireless clients, or bounce new wireless connections when certain bandwidth limit is reached to avoid congestion.
