D-Link has shipped its first shipping USB 2.0 wireless IEEE 802.11g standards-compliant adapter. Called the D-Link Xtreme G USB Adapter (DWL-G120), the solution is targeted at the digital home and the small-to-medium business (SMB) market segments.

The D-Link DWL-G120 is interoperable with the most popular 802.11g/b home, office and hot spot networks in use today. It is easy to install and delivers up to 54Mbits/s bandwidth in the 2.4GHz frequency range.

The adapter complies with the latest wireless networking security features, including 64/128-bit WEP encryption and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) support for both 802.1x and WPA-PSK. The DWL-G120 is also capable of supporting the government-grade AES encryption and upcoming 802.11i standards with future firmware upgrades.

"Our strict compliance with the latest IEEE 802.11g and USB 2.0 standards means the DWL-G120 will be interoperable with any compliant hardware," says Wilson C. Xavier, business & support manager, D-Link Middle East.

"The USB adapter is a great addition to our robust, award-winning Xtreme G family of wireless products, because it gives users 11G speeds in a flexible device that is completely transportable between multiple computers," he adds.

The D-Link DWL-G120 is a plug-and-play USB 2.0 device that can operate in multiple modes, including Ad-Hoc. It allows users to connect without an access point and can be used for resources sharing across a network.
