Expand your wireless coverage with MIMO!

Expand your wireless
coverage with MIMO!
High-speed, long-range, wireless
networking for your desktop or
notebook computer
MIMO smart antenna technology
captures faint signals for extended
range and reduced dead spots
Much faster than Wireless-G
when connected to RangePlus or
Wireless-N, but also works great
with Wireless-G and -B devices
Advanced wireless security: Wi-Fi
Protected Access™ (WPA2) with up
to 256-bit encryption

(802.11b) and Wireless-G
(802.11g) standards
• Supports WEP (64- and 128-bit),
WPA and WPA2 (Personal and
Enterprise) encryption security
• Compatible with Microsoft
Windows 2000 (SP4), XP (SP2 or
later) and Vista
The RangePlus Wireless Network USB Adapter is the simple way to add or upgrade
wireless connectivity in your desktop or notebook computer. Just plug it into your
computer’s USB port and enjoy incredible high-speed wireless network access while
retaining true mobility.
The RangePlus Wireless Notebook Adapter uses the very latest wireless networking
technology to achieve extended range. Unlike ordinary wireless networking
technologies that are confused by signal reflections, MIMO actually uses these
reflections to increase the range and reduce “dead spots” in the wireless coverage
area. The robust signal travels farther, maintaining wireless connections much farther
than standard Wireless-G. And with MIMO, the farther away you are, the more speed
advantage you get. It works great with standard Wireless-G and -B equipment, but
when both ends of the wireless link use RangePlus technology, the throughput can be
increased even more by using twice as much radio band.
Once you’re connected, you can keep in touch with your e-mail, access the Internet,
and share files and other resources such as printers and network storage with other
computers on the network, wherever you wander. At home, you can surf the web or
use instant messaging to chat with friends while sitting out on the patio. You’ll also be
able to connect with any of the growing number of public hotspots springing up in
coffee shops, airport lounges, hotels and convention centers. Your wireless connection
is protected by industrial-strength WPA2 encryption. The included Setup Wizard will
walk you through configuring the adapter to your network’s settings, step by step.
Get connected with fast throughput, reduced dead spots, and increased wireless range
with the RangePlus Wireless Network USB Adapter from Linksys.

The maximum performance for wireless is derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Actual performance can vary, including lower wireless
network capacity, data throughput rate, range and coverage. Performance depends on many factors, conditions and variables, including distance
from the access point, volume of network traffic, building materials and construction, operating system used, mix of wireless products used,
interference and other adverse conditions.
Check the product package and contents for specific features supported. Specifications are subject to change without notice.
