ZyXEL G-220 802.11g USB Wi-Fi Adapter Doubles as Access Point

May 24, 2004

Hsinchu, May 24, 2004 -- ZyXEL Communications (TSE:2391), world's leading broadband access solutions provider, today unveils its revolutionary ZyXEL G-220 USB dual-mode wireless network adapter. The thumb-sized 802.11g-compatible adapter can double as a plug-and-play wireless AP (Access Point), which is remarkably convenient for value-conscious home users.

ZyXEL G-220 supports the IEEE 802.11g standard with a top speed of 54Mbps in the station mode. What's more, ZyXEL G-220 can work as a Wi-Fi access point with built-in software-based AP mode. By plugging ZyXEL G-220 into any desktop or notebook PC that connects to the Internet with a physical Ethernet port, users can extend their wired network into WLAN for up to 32 people to share Internet connection simultaneously.

Unlike its extremely compact size, ZyXEL G-220 thinks big on the wireless security front. It supports 64/128/256 WEP encryption, IEEE 802.1X user authentication and WiFi-certified WPA security features in both station and AP modes to ensure the manageability to internal wireless access and data security.

ZyXEL G-220 is expected to be available in June 2004 via ZyXEL's global sales network of system integrators and value-added resellers. To find a ZyXEL distributor nearest your location, please consult:
