Latest Wireless N Technology Enhances Performance and Coverage

The ZyXEL WAP3205 brings you faster wireless connections than you ever dreamed possible. With blazing speeds of up to 300Mbps, the WAP3205 has the power to handle multiple wireless connections, high-speed downloading, and smooth, lag-free high definition video streaming at speeds up to 6 times faster than existing 802.11g networks. With the ability to integrate seamlessly with your existing b/g wireless network, the WAP3205 is the perfect way to bring your connection up to speed while expanding network coverage throughout your home.



Expand Your Wireless Network

WAP3205 Diagram

Not all internet-ready devices are natively wirelessly capable. With the WAP3205’s Client Mode, you can connect the WAP3205 to your set top box, game console, or other Ethernet-ready device and quickly form a link to your existing network, no additional wiring required.

To make setup as simple as possible, the WAP3205 uses the eaZy123 setup wizard. With a single click, users can easily change the WAP’s mode of operation without any complicated setup procedures.


Backward-Compatible with Most Popular APs

Now you can extend wireless coverage throughout your entire home. With Universal Repeater mode, the WAP3205 can seamlessly connect to most popular Wireless Access Points to expand your network without the need to run cables.


One-touch WPS button for easy wireless security setup

Establishing a secure wireless network with the WAP3205 couldn’t be easier. Simply push the Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) button and the corresponding button on the device you wish to connect. It takes only a few seconds to set up a secure wireless network without any complicated configuration. Instead of using a pass phrase, users can authenticate and add a new device to the network by pressing a button or entering an automatically generated PIN code. With the button option, you can setup the wireless configuration and encryption in seconds with just a simple click.


Wireless SchedulingWireless scheduling

In order to reduce unnecessary wireless energy consumption, the wireless scheduler and output power management of the WAP3205 enable you to easily control the wireless network environment. The desired operating time can be set up in a few steps via the Web-based user interface, allowing the WAP3205 to turn itself on or off according to your wireless usage pattern.


Wireless output managementWireless output management

With Wireless Output Management, you’re able to easily adjust the power output for less interference in neighborhoods with high access point density — its six-level signal strength control capability instantly makes you a good wireless neighbor.



*The maximum wireless data transfer rate is derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Actual data transfer rate will vary from network environment including: distance, network traffic, building site materials/construction, interference from other wireless devices, and other adverse conditions.

Very easy to setup.

This is when I have to reset the ZyXEL to factory defaults, set a fixed IP address to computer, connect it to the ZyXEL and configure it again.
T. Beniflah
The connection would drop off and would only work for maybe an hour at a time.

Once you have it setup it works flawlessy. Problem is setting it up for the first time. Documentation is not user friendly to the non-tech savvy. I'm using it as a wireless bridge / access point with my Sony blue-ray player. I already have a Linksys wireless router using WEP encryption (forced to use this because my XBOX 360 doesn't support WPA). To make it easy for others doing the same thing use the following steps:

1. Change your pc or laptop's ethernet adapter's IP address to 192.168.1.3 To do this on Vista or Windows 7 you open you network sharing center then you open your ethernet LAN adapter settings (or manage network connections in Vista). Select the Internet protocol v4 (IPv4) and go into properties. Manually put in the IP address with subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 and don't worry about the gateway address.

2. Connect your WAP3205 to your pc/laptop with the ethernet cable that is provided. Of course make sure you plugged in the power to it or your going nowhere. Open up your preferred browser (IE, firefox, netscape, etc.) and then type in the address bar 192.168.1.2 and now you will be connected to the WAP3205. Type in the default password of 1234, you are now prompted to change your password to whatever you want it to be.

3. Now that your in the WAP3205 click on Expert Mode. When in this mode on the far left you will see Status and below it Monitor, Configuration and Maintenance. Click on Maintenance and then hit the plus sign in front of Maintenance once you are in. Go to the last option of Sys OP Mode then select Client Mode and hit apply.

4. Go back to the far left and hit configuration then go to Wireless LAN. You will see tabs for Profile, Site Survey and WPS. Hit the Profile tab and then hit the Add button.

This is an impressive piece of networking gear, particularly for the price. It has a great deal of functionality, some of it unusual. However, I have to warn you: the documentation is terrible. When the other reviewers said the documentation is poor, boy, they weren't kidding.

The Zyxel can be configured to act as an access point, wireless client, or universal repeater. Let me explain these modes:

=> If you already have (wired) Internet access (e.g., DSL or a cable modem), you can connect the Zyxel in access point mode, and then you'll be able to connect to the Internet via the wireless network from throughout your home. This is probably the most common use of this kind of gear, and for this purpose, the Zyxel will probably do the trick just fine.

=> If you already have a wireless network set up in your home, and you want to connect another device (e.g., a gaming console) to the wireless network, but the other device doesn't itself have wireless capability, you can use the Zyxel as a wireless client. For instance, imagine you have DSL/cable modem Internet access, connected to a wireless access point, in one room of your house. On the other side of your house, you have a gaming console, and you want to connect it to the Internet, but the gaming console doesn't have 802.11 wireless capability. What to do? You can plug the Zyxel into the gaming console via Ethernet. The Zyxel will connect wireless to your existing access point, and provide Internet access to your gaming console. See other reviews here for information about how to configure the Zyxel in wireless client mode.

Great router for the price. I purchased this to install a wireless bridge to my kids XBOX 360 in the basement (I chose to avoid the wiring). The router is roughly 1/2 the price of the XBOX 360 wireless receiver, and has extra ports to allow future expansion for things like Blu-Ray or other devices. I also figured I could use the universal repeater mode to extend our wireless signal further throughout the house. The setup was difficult though. All computers in my home are wireless, which meant that the ethernet ports that the router required were on a different IP / subnet than expected by the router for initial setup. In the end, I had to disable my wireless card on an XP machine, set the IP address / subnet of the ethernet card by hand to 192.168.1.3 / 255.255.255.0 to be able to talk to the router (note - the how-to on this IS in the documentation). Once I was able to "log onto" the router, I used the documentation to set it up in "client mode" (wireless bridge mode). I then had to set my ethernet card back to "obtain an IP address automatically" in order to get the internet up and running on my computer. I then unplugged the device and hooked it up to the XBOX 360 for a successful XBOX Live session.

In the end, this device is very capable and really inexpensive. Hopefully, my notes above will help you get through the process a little faster. I have not braved the universal repeater mode yet. One other note - one buyer indicated that they had to permanently set their IP addresses. I only had to do that to talk to the router on setup, after that, all IP addresses were automatic.
