The 4ipnet HSG260 is the most economical yet feature-rich Wireless Hotspot Gateway, targeting mini-size stores who want to provide small, single-point wireless Internet access service.

HSG260 is a perfect choice for beginners to run hotspot businesses. It does not cost a fortune to buy a pile of equipment, nor does it take the skills of an expert to glue multiple applications out of multiple freeware.

Feature-packed for hotspot operation, HSG260 comes with built-in 802.11n/b/g access point, web server and web pages for clients to login, easy logo-loading for branding a hotspot store, simple user/visitor account management tool, payment plans, PayPal credit card gateway, traffic logs, IP sharing and etc. Equipped with 4ipnet’s patent-pending 4ipWES (Press-n-Connect) technology, the HSG260 is able to establish an automatic WDS link with up to 2 access points at the touch of a button. Extending wireless network coverage is a breeze. To open a hotspot store is at finger tips with HSG260 connecting to the Internet pipe via ADSL/Cable/Satellite modem. HSG260 also brings in an extra advantage - the wall-mountable, dust-proof (IP50) metal housing.

HSG260 now supports QR Code-Auto Login. The unique feature allows operators or guest to login automatically by scanning the QR Code on the on-demand account ticket printed from 4ipnet’s POS Printer PRT200. The feature used any QR Code scanner on most smart, mobile devices.

For a self-proprietor who owns one or several small shops, serving wireless internet service is no magic via HSG260. Many auto-service shops and dental clinics find an HSG260 in service makes their customers’ waiting time a breeze. Small coffee shops can offer time-based hotspot service by compliment coupons or paid by hours at ease. For small professional offices such as accounting or law firms who demand high-level network security, a standalone HSG260 enables the offices to provide managed Internet service to their clients or visitors in an isolated fashion, free of charge, while securely preventing unauthorized access to the intranet.
