Rapid developments in wireless technology have improved the portability and mobility of computing devices, but the limited bandwidth compared with wired communications has deterred widespread application, especially those users who exclusively handle large audio and video contents.
For them, high-speed data transfers simply outweighs the convenience of eliminating tangling wires and cables.
The ASUS WL-520g wireless router incorporated a high-speed mode that boosts data transfers by 35% compared with conventional solutions based on the 802.11g standard. Why compromise data bandwidth for wireless convenience or vise versa? The ASUS WL-520g gives you the best of both worlds.
125* High-Speed Mode
The WL-520g wireless router, based on the 802.11g standard, enables fast 54Mb/sec wireless data transfers while remaining fully compatible with existing 802.11b devices. With Afterburner technology, which boosts transfer speed by 35%, users can enjoy fast wireless transmission for large files of complex contents.
ASUS EZSetup Wizard
Adopting a unique button design, ASUS' wireless router series streamlined the setup process for beginners. Just press the button located at the back of the router and start the simple ASUS EZSetup Wizard. The routers automatically register various wireless-capable devices onto the network and activate security settings. No manual configuration is needed.
Wi-Fi Multmedia (WMM)
WMM enhances wireless transfers of multimedia contents, providing wireless network users an improved experience for sharing audio and video files. The Wi-Fi Alliance defined WMM as a profile of the upcoming IEEE 802.11e Quality of Service extension for 802.11 networks. QoS and multimedia support are critical to wireless home networks, which require video on demand, audio on demand, voice over IP and high-speed Internet access. WMM defines four access categories ? voice, video, best effort, and background ? that are used to prioritize traffic to provide enhanced multimedia support.
Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2 )
WPA2 is the next-generation Wi-Fi security standard, combining the most powerful authentication and encryption techniques, such as the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) to provide government grade security to protect wireless networks from unauthorized use. WPA2 is designed to be backward compatible with the original WPA standard, and therefore, WPA2 also supports TKIP, AES, WPA, WPA-PSK and 802.1x authenticated WPA networks. WEP, ACL and SPI firewall are also included to make sure information doesn't fall into the wrong hands.
