ZoneFlex Wireless extender

  • Updated 3 years ago
I'm trying to get more info on the ZF7055. I couldn't find a manual other than the quick start guide. Does it require a Zone Director? I would like to use it as a wireless\wired extender. Basically, I want to wirelessly connect it to my existing network and then use the ports to connect non-wireless devices. Would it work in this scenario?

Hello Robert,

it works in 2 modes, one as a standalone and second in controller/Flexmaster mode.

it cannot work as repeater hence will NOT connect "wirelessly" to your current/existing wireless network however it can connect to your current or existing WIRED network and then provide wireless network from it.

take a look at its datasheet - http://www.rsi-support.com/wp-content...

hope this helps.

Thanks for the info. I guess I'm looking for a wireless bridge or wireless extender. Basically I need an access point in mesh mode with a built in switch. So far I've only found consumer products like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product...

I don't understand this community. Somehow I was able to post the initial question with my personal getstatisfaction account. Now I cannot reply with that account so I had to use my work account.
