The Netgear Wbc502 Airbridge is a wireless airbridge that is capable of providing a range of up to 9000 square feet by deploying multiple airbridges in different locations. It comes with a master and a satellite. The satellite connects with the master to spread the range over a long distance. It supplies an internet connection speed of 500MBps if the master and the satellite are installed by judging the line of sight at the distance of 500 feet. The weather resistance features enable both the master and the satellite to deploy in open locations as it can easily withstand overwhelming bad situations such as harsh sunlight, rain, snow, dust, etc.
By connecting the IP camera to the device, you can also use this device for security purposes. Not only for open places, but it is also suitable for homes and offices too. The advanced 5GHz frequency bands provide a stable and fast internet connection. It can be connected with most of the devices as it is compatible with devices having 802.11ac, 802.11n, and 802.11g WiFi communication standards.

To begin with, open the web browser and enter the login details by visiting Netgear’s official website insight.netgear. However, you can also type the IP address instead of a website. Enter the login details by typing the username and passphrase. When you access the web management page of the Netgear device, go to the wireless settings option from the left side. Choose the distance field after selecting the wireless option.
