The DAP-2682 Nuclias Connect Wireless AC2300 Wave 2 Dual-Band PoE Access Point is designed to support small to medium business or enterprise environments by providing network administrators with secure and manageable dual-band wireless LAN options, and utilising the cutting-edge speed of 802.11ac Wave 2. The DAP-2682 delivers maximum combined wireless signal rates of up to 2300 Mbps1 and supports MU-MIMO technology that allows multiple devices to get high-bandwidth Wi-Fi signal at the same time, distributing data more efficiently. To maximise total return on investment, the DAP-2682 can be configured to optimise network performance based on any one of its multiple operation modes.

For centralise network management, administrators can use D-Link’s free Nuclias Connect software or Nuclias Connect Hub (DNH-100)4 to configure and manage multiple access points. In addition to streamlining the management process, Nuclias Connect provides network administrators with the means to verify and conduct regular maintenance checks remotely, eliminating the need to send personnel out to physically verify proper operation.

Preloaded with the Nuclias Connect Management Software

D-Link’s Nuclias Connect is a centralized management and analytics solution that brings convenience, control, customizability and cost-effective scaling to small to medium-sized business (SMB) networks. It enables network monitoring, management, and device configuration through a single, easy-to-use software interface.

What’s more – management software comes preloaded, and there are no licensing or support fees. Easily manage your network, anytime, anywhere.

Multi-Mode Makes the Most of your Network Capabilities

In order to achieve optimal network performance, the DAP-2682 has several operational modes tailored to best fit the individual needs of your network. Access Point, Wireless Client, WDS (Wireless Distribution System), and WDS with Access Point modes allow for flexible, customizable deployment whatever your requirements.

Access Point
Add wireless access to your existing wired network.

Wireless Client
Add wireless functionality to a device which does not have a Wi-Fi adapter.

Wirelessly connect two separate networks.

WDS with AP
Wirelessly connect two separate networks while also providing wireless access to both networks.

In a World Where Time is Money, Speed is Essential

Increase employee productivity with access to the data they require at combined speeds of up to 2300 Mbps. The DAP-2682 delivers four times the speed of Wireless N by supporting concurrent dual-band performance, while an added Gigabit LAN port allows for high-capacity backhaul to the wired network.

Take a Load Off and Let Your AP do the Hard Work

The DAP-2682’s Load Balancing feature spreads the workload between two or more Access Points to get optimal resource utilization, throughput and response time, while Airtime Fairness helps distribute equal amounts of air time to each connected client. Band Steering auto-connects devices such as smartphones and tablets to the higher-capacity 5 GHz band while allowing 2.4 GHz-only devices to remain. The result is a steady, consistent connection for each user – the perfect balancing act.

Industrial Design Redefined

The DAP-2682 is designed with aesthetics in mind. Its fresh white housing blends well into any indoor space, while its soft, rounded corners ensure an elegant integration wherever it’s placed.

Peak Performance and Discreet Deployment with Power over Ethernet (PoE)

The DAP-2682’s PoE function allows for easy installation and a simple, clean setup. No need to run extra power lines, no added hassle when configuring your hardwiring and no more cable clutter. Perfect for advanced installations in areas where power outlets are not readily available.

Make Every Second Count with Advanced Quality of Service (QoS)

Not only does the DAP-2682 delivers reliable wireless performance with maximum wireless signal rates of up to 600 Mbps in the 2.4 GHz band and 1700 Mbps in the 5 GHz band it also enhances your network’s Quality of Service (QoS) by cleverly prioritizing different types of traffic through Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM™). With the use of QoS, WMM™ ensures that applications such as audio, video and voice, that require better throughput and more performance are placed in order of high-to-low priority for an all-round smoother, uninterrupted Wi-Fi experience.

Big Things Start Small

Networks big or small all have to start somewhere, with devices sometimes having to take on duties that would not normally be expected of them. For the DAP-2682 that is not a problem since its stand-alone capabilities mean it can take on multiple roles effortlessly. It can be deployed within a small office or classrooms, for example, to create or expand the capacity of a wireless network.

The Beating Heart of Your Network

At the heart of your network is the DNH-100 Wireless Controller, or ‘The Hub’. It centralizes all aspects of your Access Points’ provisioning and management, allowing them to work together as a team. Features such as self-organizing, self-optimizing and self-healing keep the network performing at its peak.
