Up to 54Mbps Transmission Speed
The DWL-G650+ provides speeds of up to 54Mbps when used with other D-Link AirPlusG+ and other 802.11g products. This compares favorably with 802.11b adapters that offer 11Mbps speed, and with 802.11b+ adapters that give 22Mbps transmission. 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.
Real Throughput 10 Times Faster Than 802.11b Wireless Adapters
Apart from the higher theoretical network data transfer speed of 54Mbps for 802.11g against the 11Mbps for 802.11b, the DWL-G650+ also delivers a much faster data transmission than other wireless LAN adapters. In a typical working environment with multiple users accessing the network at the same time, the DWL-G650+ operates at 10 times the speed of a normal 802.11b wireless LAN card, which is made possible by means of an embedded turbo engine on-board this adapter.
Compatible With 802.11b and 802.1 1b+
802.11g compatibility with existing wireless LAN standards means that you do not need to change your entire network to maintain connectivity. Y ou may sacrifice some of 802.11g's speed when you mix 802.11b and 802.11b+ with 802.11g devices, but you will not lose the ability to communicate.
Easy Migration to Higher Bandwidth
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.
To take full advantage of the new 54Mbps 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 adapter.
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. The DWL-G650+ provides a stronger network security with 64, 128 and 256-bit WEP data encryption.
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.
