Wireless 108 G CardBus Adapter
Where to buy


Up to 108Mbps Transmission Speed
Unlike most wireless cards, the DWL-G650 provides speeds of up to 108Mbps Turbo mode when used with other D-Link AirPlusXtremeG products. This compares favorably with 802.11b adapters that offer 11Mbps speed. The DWL-G650 provides all these using a single 2.4GHz wireless frequency, eliminating the complexity of dualband networking. This enhanced speed and adoption of 2.4GHz frequency, now available for public use in most countries, plus the mobility and convenience inherent in a wireless LAN, make this adapter an ideal solution for bandwidth intensive WLAN applications.

Compatible With 802.11b
AirPlusExtremeG 802.11g compability with existing wireless LAN standards means that you do not need to change your entire network to maintain connectivity.

Compatible With 802.11b
By maintaining compatibility with your existing wireless network equipment, this adapter lets you upgrade to a higher speed at the pace you want. The DWL-G650 and other 802.11g standard devices can be gradually added to your network, while the rest of your older network remains perfectly connected.

Powerful Performance
To take full advantage of the new 108Mbps network bandwidth, this adapter uses 32-bit high-speed CardBus design to transfer network data with the computer host. This ensures that no bottlenecks take place between your computer's CPU and your network wireless frequency.

Advanced Security
In addition to offering faster data transfer speeds, this adapter also provides the newest, strongest, most advanced security features available today. For home users that do not incorporate a radius server in their networks, security is provided in a convenient, automatic way (when used in conjunction with other 802.11g products). No longer will you have to frequently input a new WEP key to execute security operations. With the DWL-G650, you will automatically receive a new key every time you connect, doing away with the inconvenience of manual WEP key input.

Easy Installation
With hot swap and plug-and-play capabilities, this adapter can be easily installed into a notebook PC for direct connection to any wireless device in the ad-hoc mode or infra-structure mode. Access to your wired Ethernet servers is also provided through your wireless LAN access points.
