The Linksys Dual-Band Wireless A+G Notebook Adapter lets your notebook communicate with all three wireless network standards. With one PC Card, you can connect to Wireless-A (802.11a), Wireless-G (draft 802.11g) and Wireless-B (802.11b) networks.
Wireless-B networks have a data rate of 11Mbps, and are commonly found in corporate environments and in homes for household Internet connectivity without the need for running cables. They're also popping up all over the country in coffee shops, airports, hotels, convention centers, and other public spaces offering "on the go" connectivity to mobile users.
In high speed or heavy usage environments, Wireless-B is quickly being replaced by a new standard, Wireless-G, which uses the same 2.4GHz radio band, but at 54Mbps, is almost five times faster. The third wireless network standard is Wireless-A, which also runs at 54Mbps, but operates in the less-crowded 5GHz radio band. Wireless-A is mostly used in corporate installations.
Whichever standard you encounter, the Dual-Band Wireless A+G Notebook Adapter is ready to connect. And it's simple to use. Just pop it into a PC Card slot and run the included Setup Wizard which will walk you through the configuration. All wireless communications can be protected by up to 152-bit encryption, so your data stays secure.
Join the wireless revolution. With the Linksys Dual-Band Wireless A+G Notebook Adapter, you'll be ready to connect to all three types of wireless networks, wherever you go, now and in the future.
