The EZ Connect™ N 802.11n Wireless USB2.0 Adapter (SMCWUSB-N2) enables Wireless-N connectivity to your desktop or notebook computer and provides improved throughput and range than existing 802.11g technology. The SMCWUSB-N2 is 802.11n draft 2.0 compliant while maintaining full backwards compatibility with the Wireless-G (802.11g) and Wireless-B (802.11b) standards. It utilizes advanced MIMO (Multiple-In, Multiple-Out) technology to deliver incredible speed and range. With wireless speeds up to 300Mbps and extended coverage, there is enough bandwidth to simultaneously stream video and audio, play online games, transfer large files, make VoIP calls and surf the Internet. With security being a key consideration, SMCWUSB-N2 supports the latest WPA and WPA2 wireless encryption standards, which prevent unauthorized access to wireless networks and ensure data is secure. Wireless security can also be set up easily using Wi-Fi Protected SetupTM (WPS) that enables push button or PIN configuration. The SMCWUSB-N2 includes an easy installation wizard which guides you step-by-step through the process. Once installed the WLAN utility allows you to scan for available wireless networks and manage multiple network profiles so connecting becomes instantaneous.
