  1. 1. 24 July 2005 By: SMC Networks Launches New Family Of Wireless Networking Products EZ Connect 108G SMC Networks has just launched its EZ Connect 108G family of wireless 802.11b/g SuperG networking products, where they will be available by August.The EZ Connect 802.11g SuperG Wireless Router, Wireless Cardbus Adapter, Wireless USB Adapter, Wireless PCI Adapter and Wireless Ethernet Bridge will be available at MSRPs of US$79.99, US$49.99, US$59.99, US$49.99 and US$79.99, respectively.The latest in SMC's EZ Connect family of easy-to use networking products for the home and small office, the EZ Connect 802.11g SuperG product line maintains the ease of use that the EZ Connect line is known for, but boosts network performance. Based on the Atheros Super G chipset, the entire EZ Connect 802.11g SuperG product line performs at a top-speed of as much as 108Mbps-twice the speed of standard 802.11g, and 15 times that of 802.11b-when used together, or with any SuperG-based 802.11g networking hardware. It is fully 802.11g-compliant so is completely backward-compatible with all 802.11g and b hardware.Anchoring the family, the new EZ Connect 802.11g SuperG Wireless Broadband Router (SMCWBR14T-G) offers 802.11b/g wireless connectivity at up to 108Mbps, with four 10/100 ports for wired connections and a 5th 10/100 port for cable or DSL connection. Its built-in SPI Firewall and Access Control feature provide a high level of security for the network. Supporting a high wireless data transmission rate that's up to 15 times faster than 802.11b, the new 108Mbps broadband router maintains backward compatibility with existing 802.11b and g devices, and offers more secure broadband, file and peripheral sharing.Using an SMC EZ Connect SuperG Wireless Adapter in the PCs and other devices on the network lets users take full advantage of the wireless performance potential of the EZ Connect 802.11g SuperG Wireless Broadband Router or Wireless Ethernet Bridge: an EZ Connect SuperG Wireless Cardbus Adapter or USB Adapter for portable PCs or other networkable devices; or an EZ Connect SuperG Wireless PCI Adapter for desktop PCs. All three adapters offer high-speed data rates to 108Mbps, and a high level of security, with support for both 64/128-bit WEP encryption and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA), as well as 802.1x authentication to ensure that only authorized users can access the resources of the wireless network.All of the EZ Connect SuperG are easy to set-up and use with the included EZ Installation Wizard, and the adapters have automatic scanning utilities built-in so that they can locate available wireless access points.The SMCWEBT-G EZ Connect SuperG Wireless Ethernet Bridge provides the ultimate in easy setup and flexibility. It installs and communicates without drivers, and can be configured to serve as a wireless access point, to provide network access to other wireless 802.11g and 802.11b devices; as a repeater, through support for Wireless Distribution System (WDS), to extend the range of a wireless 2.4GHz network using either a point-to-point or point-to-multipoint configuration; or as a wireless bridge, to connect virtually any Ethernet-capable device into a wireless network.
