Affordable and Reliable Secure Shared Internet Access for Wireless and Wired Users
The 3Com® Wireless 11g Cable/DSL Router is an affordable and easy-to-use solution, designed for small and home offices, which enables multiple users to securely share a single cable or DSL Internet connection.
Wireless LAN users can connect at speeds of up to 54 Mbps and at distances up to 400 feet—almost nine times faster than 11b wireless speeds. And the wireless router is backward-compatible with 11b wireless clients, preserving existing wireless network investments.
And, because it is Wi-Fi CERTIFIED, the router works with other Wi-Fi compatible equipment.
Featuring eXtended range (XR) technology this router facilitates longer range connections, providing single access point coverage in most home networks, helping eliminate dead spots in corporate wireless LANs, and providing outdoor coverage of up to two times the distance of last-generation competing similar IEEE 802.11g solutions.
The 3Com 11g Cable/DSL Router includes multiple security and routing features— IP routing (RIP 1 and 2), static routing, URL or keyword filtering, and allow/deny access control lists— in an economical package.
128-bit WPA/WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access/Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) with TKIP/AES, and 40-/64- and 128-bit WEP (Wireless Encryption Protocol) encryption for legacy clients, protects the privacy of 11g and 11b wireless transmissions. An intuitive web interface and simple setup wizards simplify setup and use.
This router is shipped with a power supply unit with an Argentinian-style plug, for use in selected countries. See your local 3Com reseller for availabilty.
