ASUS unveiled the 240 MIMO series total solutions, which includes the WL-566gM router and the WL-106gM cardbus adapter. The ASUS 240 MIMO total solution drastically improves WLAN’s data transfer rate and coverage range, while maintaining signal integrity and Wi-Fi interoperability. With high-speed 240Mbps data transfer rate, the multi-transmitting 240 MIMO total solution excels with an actual throughput of up to 100Mbps, and covers eight times the range than that of standard 802.11g WLAN devices. True wireless multimedia experience in homes, small businesses, retail stores etc, without any dead spots is now possible by taking advantage of multipath propagation in the Multiple Input Multiple Output technology – MIMO.

ASUS Technology Pte Ltd (ASUS), a leading provider of high-performance
wireless solutions, today unveiled the 240 MIMO series total solutions, which
includes the WL-566gM router and the WL-106gM cardbus adapter. The ASUS 240 MIMO
total solution drastically improves WLAN’s data transfer rate and coverage
range, while maintaining signal integrity and Wi-Fi interoperability.

With high-speed 240Mbps data transfer rate, the multi-transmitting 240 MIMO
total solution excels with an actual throughput of up to 100Mbps, and covers
eight times the range than that of standard 802.11g WLAN devices. True wireless
multimedia experience in homes, small businesses, retail stores etc, without any
dead spots is now possible by taking advantage of multipath propagation in the
Multiple Input Multiple Output technology – MIMO.

True Wireless Reality
Employing the MIMO technology, which leveraged multi-path signaling, the overall
throughput, range/coverage, and reliability are significantly improved. The
WL-566gM and WL-106gM incorporated this innovation and makes true wireless
environment a reality at enterprises, home offices, retail stores and homes with
coverage range that extends eight times than that of the existing 802.11g WLAN
solutions, and thus eliminating dead spots, cables, and the cost of additional
router configurations.

8X Speed than Existing IEEE 802.11g Units
By transmitting multiple signals containing different information streams over
the same frequency channel, MIMO provides a means of doubling or tripling
spectral efficiency. With a data rate of 240Mbps and actual throughput of up to
100Mbps, the 240 MIMO series operates at Super Speed that is two times the speed
of standard MIMO devices, and eight times the speed of 802.11g. This makes
extending applications possible in areas of HD video streaming, multiple online
gaming, MP3 and movie downloads; and large file sharing could be accomplished in
a few seconds.

EZSetup at Press of a Button
Both the WL-566gM and WL-106gM utilizes the ASUS EZSetup Wizard that allows for
effortless setup in just 2 easy steps. Wireless devices and security features
are detected and automatically implemented at just a press of the button.

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.

Data Security with Wi-Fi Protected Access2
The WL-566gM router employs WPA2, which is based on the IEEE 802.11i standard,
ensuring all data and access to the network is restricted to authorized users
only. Coupled with WEP firewall protocol, the router provides advanced
encryption mechanism and security without the sacrifice of physical distance.
