Quick Links

DWL-G122 is a high-performance 802.11g wireless LAN USB adapter that connects your computer to a high-speed wireless LAN. This adapter simply plugs to your computer through a fast USB 2.0 interface to provide up to 54Mbps wireless speed. With industry standard interoperability, backward compatibility with 802.11b devices and plug-and-play installation, this adapter is an ideal solution for notebook and laptop PC users needing fast and standard mobile network connection.

  • 802.11bg wireless LAN standard, backward compatible with 802.11b devices
  • 2.4GHz frequency band
  • Fast USB 2.0 connection to notebook/desktop computer
  • Up to 54Mbps wireless data transfer rate
  • User-selectable WEP 64/128-bit data encryption and WPA security
  • Supports Windows 98 SE, 2000, ME, XP, Vista, MAC
  • Integrated internal antenna
  • Compact pocket-sized design, lightweight

Up to 54Mbps Transmission Speed

The DWL-G122 provides speeds of up to 54Mbps when used with other 802.11g wireless devices. This compares favourably with 802.11b adapters that offer only 11Mbps transmission.

Compatible With 802.11b

The DWL-G122 provides speeds of up to 54Mbps when used with other 802.11g wireless devices. This compares favourably with 802.11b adapters that offer only 11Mbps transmission. Like the 802.11b devices, the DWL-G122 uses a single 2.4GHz wireless frequency, eliminating the complexity of dual-band networking. 802.11g's compatibility with existing wireless LAN standards means that you do not need to change your entire network to maintain connectivity.

Easy Migration to Higher Bandwidth

The DWL-G122 provides speeds of up to 54Mbps when used with other 802.11g wireless devices. This compares favourably with 802.11b adapters that offer only 11Mbps transmission. Like the 802.11b devices, the DWL-G122 uses a single 2.4GHz wireless frequency, eliminating the complexity of dual-band networking. 802.11g's compatibility with existing wireless LAN standards means that you do not need to change your entire network to maintain connectivity. By maintaining compatibility with your existing wireless network equipment, this adapter lets you upgrade to a higher speed at the pace you want. The DWL-G122 and other 802.11g standard devices can be gradually added to your network, while the rest of your older network remains perfectly connected.

Network Security

The DWL-G122 supports Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) to provide the necessary security protocols and tools, so you can communicate with other wireless users confidentially, access sensitive information or send data that is dynamically encrypted as it's sent. WPA allows authorization and identification of users based on a secret key that changes automatically at a regular interval. Used in conjunction with a RADIUS server, WPA uses TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) to change the temporal key every 10,000 packets. This insures much greater security than the standard WEP security, which requires the keys to be changed manually.

Fast USB 2.0 Interface

The DWL-G122 is equipped with a fast USB 2.0 port and a USB cable that connects to your computer, providing data throughput at up to 480Mbps between the network adapter and the host computer. That is about 40 times faster than the earlier USB 1.1 specification, allowing you to take advantage of the high 54Mbps wireless speed that this adapter provides. With USB hot swap and plug-and-play capabilities, the DWL-G122 provides you with fast and easy connectivity to wireless devices and users, no matter if they use the 802.11b or the fast 802.11g standard.
