As I mentioned earlier, the "AP" in the AP 200 is actually a wireless router, as is evidenced by the Port Forwarding settings shown in Figure 8. There is also a DMZ option, which I used to run the IxChariot-based throughput tests.

Figure 9 shows the settings for the 4-level priority-based QoS feature. There are no service pick-lists available, so you'll need to know the ports used by the applications you want to control. Note that you can apply the QoS rules to individual or all users and for both up and downlink traffic.

There's not much to say about the Firmware Update feature, other than it has a button to check online for updated firmware. Figure 10 shows the Debug screen, which provides a wealth of handy information. It's just too bad that the "Scanned AP's" list that shows in-range WLANs isn't real time and that you'll get a "Connection will be lost, are you sure?" pop-up before it drops the WWAN connection to rescan.

I should note that the AP 200's receive sensitivity seems to be pretty good. It picked up my neighbor's WEP-encrypted AP, which is never picked up by any of the wireless clients that I test!
