The D-Link AirPlus XtremeG DWL-G520 PCI Adapter is a wireless PCI adapter featuring the very latest in advanced wireless silicon chip technology to deliver incredibly fast data transfer in the 2.4GHz frequency. The DWL-G520 also works with 802.11b standard wireless devices and when used with other D-Link AirPlus XtremeG products delivers throughput speeds capable of handling heavy data payloads.
With the enhancement of D-Link 108G, the DWL-G520 can achieve wireless speeds up to 15x faster than standard 802.11b in a pure D-Link 108G environment through the use of new wireless techniques such as Packet Bursting, FastFrame, Compression & Encryption, from your Desktop PC and Turbo mode. This provides a bandwidth large enough to handle video/audio streaming and Video on Demand (VoD) applications.
The D-Link AirPlus XtremeG DWL-G520 also includes a configuration utility to discover available wireless networks and create and save detailed connectivity profiles for those networks most often accessed.
The DWL-G520 is a powerful 32-bit PCI adapter that installs quickly and easily into desktop PCs and when used with other D-Link AirPlus XtremeG products automatically connects to the network. Like all D-Link wireless adapters, the DWL-G520 can be used in ad-hoc mode to connect directly with other 2.4GHz wireless computers for peer-to-peer file sharing or in infrastructure mode to connect with a wireless access point or router for access to the Internet in your office or home network.
*Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE Standard 802.11g specifications. Actual data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials and construction, and network overhead, lower actual data throughput rate. Environmental factors will adversely affect wireless signal range.
