What is the Range of this and does it have WPA2

  • RealMccoy Wednesday, October 13, 2010 11:37 AM Reply
    Just wondering if anyone has got this and tested it. What would the range be on this thing (10 to 30 Meters) or more.

    Also will this be able to do WPA2 like mostly all other wireless devices of these days.
    You help would be much appreciated.

    A simple YES or No would have been better.
    The other topic talks about WPA2 being software
    and that is something I have never seen before and on my devices (Routers and wireless cards, It is in the firmware so Anotherwords either the device has it or it doesn't) It isnt about the software you use it is the Hardware.

    So I would still be interested in an answer, and also if anyone has tested the distance ?

    Actually, encryption types -are- implemented in software.

    Asked and answered elsewhere, shrug. I've just received mine (19 days instead of the suggested ten. Sigh. We internet generation get awfully impatient for our hardware.)

    I have two routers. One is two rooms over at about forty feet (12 meters?) The other router is about the same distance two floors down, but with thicker barriers in the way. The horizontal shot says 48% to 56% signal strength and the vertical shot says 26% signal strength.

    The half-stick "mini" unit gets about 85% and 50% if I recall correctly and the Asus full-size stick gives 100% and (never looked). Room for an antenna sure helps.
