EL-ECB-8610 High Power Multi-Client Bridge/AP

The ECB-8610 is a Wireless High Power and High Gain Multi-Client Bridge / Access Point with WDS (wireless distribution system). It operates seamlessly in the dual band 2.4/5 GHz frequency spectrum supporting the 802.11b (2.4GHz, 11Mbps), 802.11g (2.4GHz, 54Mbps) and 802.11a (5GHz, 54Mbps) wireless standards.

The NCB-8610 has high transmitted output power and high receivable sensitivity. High output power and high sensitivity can extend range and coverage to reduce the roaming between Access Points to achieve a more stable wireless connection. Please note: this is an INDOOR 5GHz product and therefore, in order to conform to Ofcom's regulations, can only be used in the 5GHz Bands A and B. To protect your wireless connectivity the NCB-8610 can encrypt all wireless transmissions through 64/128-bit WEP data encryption and also supports WPA2/WPA/802.1x for powerful security authentication. The MAC addresses filter lets you select exactly which stations should have access to your network.

Press Mentions & Reviews
Computer Shopper
Computer Shopper review the ECB-8610
It is worth noting this review is more on the features at 2.4GHz rather than the 5GHz which is why it is in our opinion not a true reflection of the product. If you are looking for a 2.4GHz product the NCB-3220 would be a much better option.
