Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Wireless LAN equipment which offers theoretical speeds of upto 54Mbps in existing 2.4GHz frequency range are launched this week by D-Link and Buffalo Technologies.

Based on the draft 802.11g specification, the equipment supplies an easier migration path from existing 11MBps 802.11b kit than 802.11a products (which operate in the 5GHz band), the companies claim.

Buffalo says it is first to market in the UK with 802.11g kit. Its first 802.11g products are the AirStation 54Mbps AP (a Wireless Broadband Router Access Point with a 4-port switch) and a Wireless CardBus adaptor. Both products will be available at the end of December 2002 exclusively through distie Computer 2000 at £104.99 for the Access Point and £44.99 for the adapter. In other words you have to get your dealer to order one for you.

Available in January 2003, D-Link's 802.11g product line includes the D-Link AirPlus Xtreme G DI-624 Wireless Router with 4-Port Switch ($129.99/£81) and the AirPlus Xtreme G DWL-G650 Wireless CardBus Adapter ($69.99/£44). The kit will be sold through D-Link's authorised retail, reseller, and distribution partners. ®
