Updated Software

I tested the BA200 with the company's latest software release, version 2.0. Enhancements include support for multiple SSIDs (Service Set Identifiers) and 802.1x authentication on the access radio; enhanced Spanning Tree Protocol support; improved backhaul security with TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol--formerly WEP2); and a comprehensive command line.
