- High-speed, long-range, wireless networking for your desktop or notebook computer
- MIMO smart antenna technology captures faint signals for extended range and reduced dead spots
- Much faster than Wireless-G when connected to RangePlus or Wireless-N, but also works great with Wireless-G and -B devices
- Advanced wireless security: Wi-Fi Protected Access™ (WPA2) with up to 256-bit encryption
The WUSB100 RangePlus Wireless Notebook Adapter uses the very latest wireless networking technology to achieve extended range. Unlike ordinary wireless networking technologies that are confused by signal reflections, MIMO actually uses these reflections to increase the range and reduce "dead spots" in the wireless coverage area. The robust signal travels farther, maintaining wireless connections much farther than standard Wireless-G. And with MIMO, the farther away you are, the more speed advantage you get. It works great with standard Wireless-G and -B equipment, but when both ends of the wireless link use RangePlus technology, the throughput can be increased even more by using twice as much radio band.
Once you're connected, you can keep in touch with your e-mail, access the Internet, and share files and other resources such as printers and network storage with other computers on the network, wherever you wander. At home, you can surf the web or use instant messaging to chat with friends while sitting out on the patio. You'll also be able to connect with any of the growing number of public hotspots springing up in coffee shops, airport lounges, hotels and convention centers. Your wireless connection is protected by industrial-strength WPA2 encryption. The included Setup Wizard will walk you through configuring the adapter to your network's settings, step by step. Or you can manually install the drivers. It may cause the Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD) in Windows Vista, so keep the drivers updated.
