WIRELESS NETWORKERTM PC CARD

Flexible, Convenient Communication with IEEE 802.11b Ethernet-speed Wireless Connectivity 
Based on the IEEE 802.11b open standard for wireless local area networking, the Wireless NetworkerTM from Symbol Technologies slips into any laptop or device with a PC card slot, providing high-throughput, Ethernet-speed wireless data communications. Devices equipped with the Wireless Networker communicate with the Spectrum24® Access Point-or other Wi-FiTM certified access points-which serves as the connectivity point to an Ethernet network, or the hub of a standalone wireless network. Wherever associates are located, from sales floors to manufacturing areas, your workforce gains instant, untethered access to vital network resources including corporate intranets, the Internet, documentation, and e-mail and other productivity applications. And it eliminates the expense and time of wiring when your IS requirements call for temporary, ad hoc, small office and kiosk networking. 
Multi-option Security Protects Data 
Symbol's Wireless Networker features multi-mode security options to meet your data protection requirements: open, for minimal data protection; industry-standard 40 and 128 bit WEP encryption; Kerberos V5 based mobile security; or a combination of these choices. 
Integrated Antenna, Dynamic Rate Scaling, High-Speed Roaming for Maximum Range and Throughput 
Wireless Networker's one-piece PC card design has an integrated diversity antenna to maximum range and throughput.The Wireless Networker features dynamic rate scaling, transmitting data at 11 Mbps then automatically scaling to 5.5 Mbps, 2 Mbps, and 1 Mbps to ensure best range and throughput. As signal strengthdecreases, the transmit rate also decreases , ensuring maximum range while maintaining data integrity. High-speed roaming also ensures the Wireless Networker seeks the best possible data rate for fastest throughput. 
Wi-Fi Certification Ensures Interoperability 
Wireless Networker bears the Wi-Fi logo, a mark granted as the official "seal of interoperability" by the Wireless Ethernet Compatibility Alliance (WECA). Only select wireless networking products offer this standard, which provides system architecture flexibility and investment protection for 802.11b interoperable installations. 
Easy Setup and Maintenance; Industry Driver Support 
Wireless Networker power management capabilities help to minimize power consumption, extending the battery life of mobile devices. Windows® 95 OSR2 (95b), 98, NT 4.0, 2000, ME, and CE drivers are available. The user-friendly Spectrum24 Plus Pack Installation Utility allows ease of configuration and monitoring of wireless network performance.
