Posted on 16-Nov-2004 16:28. | Tags Filed under: News.



Linksys announced the Wireless-G CompactFlash Card (WCF54G). The Wireless-G CompactFlash (CF) Card installs directly into a Windows Mobile Pocket PC using a CompactFlash Type II slot. The card allows users to access wireless networks with speeds of up to 54Mbps. The 802.11g CF card is also backward compatible with Wireless-B (802.11b) wireless networks.

"Pocket PC users can use the Instant Wireless CF Card to conveniently retrieve data from anywhere within 802.11g and 802.11b wireless LANs," said Mike Wagner, Linksys world wide director of marketing. "Public wireless hotspots are continuing to expand, giving PDA users opportunity to stay in touch with happenings at work or at home."

The Linksys 802.11g wireless adapter roams seamlessly among multiple 802.11g/b wireless network access points or wireless routers, it also operates in ad hoc mode (without an access point) to download data from wireless PCs without a cradle or network connection, and can share data directly with other wireless PDAs. The WCF54G supports PDAs with Pocket PC 2002 and 2003 OS. It supports up to 128-bit WEP encryption for wireless security.

The Linksys Wireless-G CompactFlash Card (WCF54G) is immediately available through major retailers, resellers, distributors and direct response in North America, for an estimated street price of US$99.
