The D-Link AirPremier DWL-3260AP is a wireless access point for business-class enterprise environments. Designed for indoor installation, this access point provides advanced functions including 108Mbps Turbo speed, security, Quality of Service (QoS), and Power over Ethernet (PoE) for network administrators to deploy a highly manageable and robust wireless network.

The DWL-3260AP delivers reliable wireless performance with standard 802.11g wireless throughput rates of up to 54Mbps. It has the added capability of reaching maximum wireless signal rates of up to 108Mbps (Turbo mode) powered by D-Link 108G technology. At the same time, the DWL-3260AP remains fully compatible with the IEEE 802.11b and 802.11g standards.

The DWL-3260AP provides the latest wireless security technologies by supporting both WPA/WPA2-Enterprise and 802.1x to ensure complete network protection. In addition, the DWL-3260AP currently comes 802.11i-ready to fully support industrial grade wireless security. Other security features included in this Access Point are MAC Address Filtering, Wireless LAN segmentation, Broadcast SSID Disabled, and support for Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) data encryption.

Additionally, the DWL-3260AP supports Network Access Protection (NAP), which is a feature of Microsoft Windows Server 2008. NAP allows network administrators to define multiple levels of network access based on the needs of individual clients. If a client is identified outside of their access area, the client will be automatically brought back to their permitted network access level.

The DWL-3260AP has a round shape and can be camouflaged as a smoke detector to distract the attention of network intruders. Its diagnostic LED can be turned off to make it appear even more like a smoke detector.
