Product Description

Draytek VigorAP 802 - Plug-In AP & Mesh Mode Dual-band Access Point

The plug design makes the VigorAP 802 easy to install and tidy once in place. With a Gigabit LAN port on the underside to connect Wired Ethernet devices into your Mesh network.

Initial setup of the VigorAP 802 is easy with the DrayTek Wireless app, whether it's joining an existing Mesh network or being set up in AP and Range Extender modes, the Quick Start Wizard assists throughout. Manage the VigorAP 802 centrally through the VigorACS central management platform, VigorConnect, Router AP Management, or simply on its own as a stand-alone access point. The VigorAP 802 has the flexibility to be used how you need it.

VigorAP 802 is a high-performance Mesh Wireless Access Point and Range Extender. With a Mesh network, you can easily expand wireless coverage, eliminate Wi-Fi dead zones and significantly reduce the cost of network deployments. DrayTek's Mesh wireless solution supports VLAN tags, allowing you to provide two distint and separate wireless networks, such as an internal and a guest network, without any cable installation required.
The VigorAP 802 is a Mesh Node to be used in conjunction with a Mesh Root, such as the VigorAP 903 Mesh Wireless Access Point. It can also be used as a traditional Access Point to provide wireless connectivity for your network. Extend wireless coverage for regular wireless networks without Mesh with the Range Extender mode. This joins the VigorAP 802 to an existing wireless network, expanding its coverage.

Small and Tidy Design
The VigorAP 802 is designed to fit into a power socket, mounting it securely and providing power with an absolute minimum of space required.
You can expand wireless coverage quickly and easily with the VigorAP 802, just plug it into a UK power socket and it's powered with its integrated power supply, no additional cables required. The dual band antennas are hidden within the VigorAP and its small size makes it inconspicuous in any room. The indicator LEDs of the VigorAP that normally show the VigorAP's status, can be disabled or scheduled to avoid them lighting up a room. To check the VigorAP's status with the LEDs turned off, just press the button on the front for 3 seconds to wake up the LED

Gigabit LAN Port
The VigorAP 802 has one wired Ethernet port on the underside of the AP. This is a Gigabit port operating at 1000Mb/s, backwards compatible with 10/100 devices.
Using the Gigabit LAN port is optional, you can use the VigorAP 802 as a purely wireless Mesh Node, connecting wirelessly to the Mesh network, without the need to use the RJ-45 for connectivity.
When operating in AP mode, this ensures that the VigorAP 802 is fed at the maximum speed in order to fully satisfy the full speed of both 2.4GHz and 5Ghz bands simultaneously. When the VigorAP 802 is used as a Mesh Node or Range Extender / Wireless Repeater, anything connected to the LAN port is bridged to your wireless network.
Dual Band AC1200 Access Point
The VigorAP 802 is an 802.11ac access point, providing wireless coverage for both 2.4GHz and 5GHz clients simultaneously.
This means that devices on the compatible 2.4GHz band can communicate with up to 300Mb/s bandwidth to 802.11b/g/n clients, while the faster 5GHz band can provide up to 866Mb/s to 802.11ac/n capable devices.
The VigorAP can connect up to 32 clients to each wireless radio, up to 64 wireless clients per VigorAP 802 access point. When used with other VigorAPs being managed by a DrayTek Vigor router, Central AP Management's AP Load Balancing can ensure that wireless clients are shared equally between the access points, giving better overall bandwidth by avoiding overloading of a single access point. Wireless Security & VLANs
The VigorAP 802 features multiple levels of wireless security. Encryption using WPA2 is available and you can also use the access control list (ACL) to specify the hardware addresses of clients which are permitted to connect (by MAC hardware address). Any unauthorised hardware is refused access.
For additional user authentication, you can have the VigorAP 802 authenticate clients with an 802.1x RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial-in User Service) server.
The VigorAP 802 supports the 802.1q VLAN protocol so that if it is connected to an 802.1q enabled LAN, it can split tagged data (whether it's different subnets or intended for different users) and broadcast each on its own SSID. This means, for example, that your guest WiFi access is provided on a separate isolated SSID with no access to your company data. Multi-SSID over Mesh
DrayTek's Mesh system supports 802.1q VLAN tagging for its multiple Wireless networks (or SSIDs), over both wireless and wired Mesh links between VigorAPs.
Each SSID provided by the Mesh network can have a VLAN tag assigned to it. VLAN tags are interpreted by the network's router and switch(es) to segregate one network from another. For instance keeping devices connecting to a guest network separate from resources on the private, internal network.
Setting up a Mesh network to work with VLANs only requires setting up the Mesh Root with the VLAN tags on its SSIDs. This change propagates to Mesh Nodes when syncing the configuration between access points and Multi-SSID over Mesh can be used just like a cabled network of access points. AP & Repeater Modes
The VigorAP 802 can be used as a stand-alone Wireless Access Point, to provide wireless connectivity for a router or network that doesn't currently have wireless.
Plug the VigorAP 802's RJ-45 port into any Ethernet network and plug the AP itself into a wall socket for a tidy and space-efficient wireless solution.
Access Point mode can create up to 2 separate Wireless networks (or SSIDs). The VigorAP 802 can provide completely separate private and guest wireless networks through the use of 802.1q VLAN tags with a router or network that supports VLAN tagging, such as the DrayTek Vigor 2862 router.
Range Extender (or Universal Repeater) mode allows the VigorAP 802 to extend the wireless coverage of any existing wireless network. In this mode, the VigorAP 802 connects to a remote wireless network, allowing it to provide Internet and Network access to wireless clients that connect to the VigorAP 802's wireless network.
