The easy way to connect your desktop or notebook to a wireless network.
Connect your USB-equipped desktop or notebook computer to a wireless network at incredible speeds with the Linksys WirelessG USB Network Adapter with SpeedBooster. Using your highspeed USB 2.0 port, the Adapter delivers incredible data rates without the trouble of opening up the case of your computer.
The Wireless-G USB Network Adapter with SpeedBooster incorporates the next generation of Wireless-G. In standard WirelessG (802.11g) mode, the USB Adapter can connect to wireless networks at an amazing 54Mbps. With our new SpeedBooster technology enabled, your 'real-world' wireless network performance increases by up to 35%! Unlike other speed-enhancing technologies, SpeedBooster is 802.11 compliant, fully compatible with standard Wireless-G, and a ''good neighbor'' to other wireless devices and technologies, using a single 2.4GHz channel as specified by the official wireless standard. And with SpeedBooster you'll see an overall speed improvement even when running a mixed network of SpeedBooster and regular Wireless-G devices.
The Adapter is also compatible with the Wireless-B (802.11b) network standard, with data rates up to 11Mbps. And your wireless communications can be protected by 128-bit encryption, so your data stays secure.
