Welcome
Thank you for purchasing the IEEE 802.11n Wireless USB Adapter. Wireless USB
Adapter has an extra foundation which is designed to make Wireless USB
Adapter get better signal when it is plugging into the foundation and can be easily
move around. In addition, Wireless USB Adapter is backward compatible with
802.11b/g. When Wireless USB Adapter is connecting to the standard 802.11b,
802.11g or 802.11n APs or routers, it can perform much better than other standard
stations.
Wireless USB Adapter supports higher data throughput than the IEEE802.11n
standard (up to 150Mbps).
For the security of WLAN, Wireless USB Adapter supports 64/128-bit WEP data
encryption which protects your wireless network from eavesdropping.
It also supports WPA/WPA2 which combines IEEE802.1x and TKIP technologies.
Client users are required to authorize before accessing to APs or routers, and the
data transmitted on the network is encrypted and decrypted by a dynamically
changed secret key. Wireless USB Adapter supports WPA2 function which
provides a stronger encryption through AES which is the most advanced WLAN
solution for IEEE802.11i. Besides, Wireless USB Adapter supports WPS function
which provides a stronger encryption and easier configuration through WPA2
which is the most advanced WLAN solution for IEEE802.11i.
