Linksys launches SRX400-based wireless products

Networking leader Linksys is doing it again, innovating the industry with their new WRT54GX4 Wireless-G Broadband Router and WPC54GX4 Wireless-G PC Card, both with SRX400 technology. This next generation of MIMO (Multiple Input, Multiple Output) technology is said to provide fewer dead spots, up to ten times faster throughput, and three times more range than standard Wireless-G.

“With the WRT54GX4 and WPC54GX4,” according to Mani Dhillion, director of product marketing at Linksys, “users can utilize the fastest wireless technology available today to stream digital entertainment content around their homes, make business and personal phone calls using Voice over IP, and enjoy greater range than ever before.” This furthers “the Linksys heritage of offering the most advanced networking technology to [their] customers.”

The new MIMO technology will play a vital role in the next generation of networking, and the upcoming Wireless-N standard (802.11n). MIMO overlays two Wireless-G signals, and in effect doubles transfer speeds – it is said that these speeds will exceed traditional Ethernet 10/100 data ports. The SRX400 technology also enhances non-SRX devices’ connection range. Linksys recognizes the security issues inherent to wireless networks, and has thus implemented industrial strength WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) encryption, as well as a powerful firewall.

Already available at resellers, the WRT54GX4 router is $149.99, and the WPC54GX4 PC-card is $99.99.
