With IEEE 802.11b wireless LAN industry standard compliance, this network card provides you with excellent network interoperability.
Security is an issue when data is transmitted without the wires. In the air, transmitted data can be easily intercepted if not well protected by a security scheme. The card provides the necessary security, using the 64/128-bit industry-standard WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) encryption protocol. Data privacy mechanism is based on a shared key algorithm, as described in the wireless LAN standard.
With PCI plug-and-play installation, the card can be easily installed into a desktop PC to provide connectivity directly to another 802.11b wireless enabled device (ad-hoc mode) or through an 802.11b Access Point (infra-structure mode).
The card is equipped with an SMA reverse detachable dipole antenna with an effective range of 100 meters indoors, or 300 meters outdoors. Where a longer range is required, you can easily remove this antenna and replace it with a higher Gain antenna.
