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. Your wireless connection is protected by up to 128-bit encryption. The included Setup Wizard will walk you through configuring the adapter to your network's settings, step by step.
You'll also be able to connect with any of the growing number of public Wireless-B (802.11b) hotspots springing up in coffee shops, airport lounges, hotels and convention centers. And as those hotspots upgrade to the high-speed Wireless-G standard, you'll be ready to take advantage of the increased speeds.
Get your notebook connected to Wireless-B, Wireless-G, and SpeedBooster wireless networks with the Wireless-G Notebook Adapter with SpeedBooster from Linksys.
