Top 5 108 Mbps Access Points

Like if this guide is helpful
As more homes and businesses go wireless, more people struggle with the logistics of setting up reliable networks. Access points are one way to improve coverage because they receive the Internet signal from the router and rebroadcast it into areas the router alone could not reach. Access points differ from routers in that they lack their own firewalls, so people cannot use access points to access the Internet directly. The best access points can handle speeds of 108 Mbps, often by combining the power of two different signals. Access points also vary in how user friendly they are for beginners. Learning about some of the best access point models can help buyers make an educated purchase.

The TL-WA901 does not need a separate power cable, and the Ethernet cable itself can stretch up to 30 metres with no loss of clarity.

3 Cisco Aironet 1240 Series

The Cisco Aironet 1240 access points are remarkably durable machines, with a design ideal for professional settings. The 1240s tolerate temperatures from 20 degrees Celsius below zero to 55 degrees above, with a similarly wide tolerance for humidity. Dual radios provide both 802.11g and 802.11a. The antenna conductors can handle a range of Cisco 2.4 and 5GHz antennas. Indoors, the wireless signal can reach over 100 metres, while outdoors, it can reach up to 300 metres. The 1240 series comes in three different versions: a lightweight model; an autonomous model that can upgrade to the lightweight version; and a version that only has a single band, since some servers do not tolerate 802.11a. The Aironet 1240 offers great value for money given its durability and quality.

The Cisco Aironet 1130AG also has dual radios as well as a visually unobtrusive presence. Thanks to internal antennas and a low profile, it looks a bit like a thick white tile. Owners can mount the device to walls, ceilings, or anywhere else out of the way. It can be a bit difficult to set-up some models of the 1130 series because they have many options that tend to confuse inexperienced owners. But other models have very simple set-up. In either case, the 1130s offer excellent reliability, and some devices go for years without any maintenance and without anyone even having to reboot them.

It mounts to the ceiling, where its round shape, internal antennas, and small size perfectly mimic a standard smoke detector. This ability to blend in with its surroundings makes the EAP-3660 a good choice for public places or anywhere else where conspicuous electronics might be distracting or simply aesthetically undesirable.
