D-Link Xtreme N notebook card gets FCC approved
We’re still waiting on that whole ratification business, but that isn’t stopping most companies from pumping out the 802.11n goodness. D-Link is no exception. Taking a stroll down the FCC offices, we came across this juicy little number, the D-Link DWA-643 Xtreme N Notebook ExpressCard, giving laptops that super speedy (and wireless) connection anywhere they can find a 802.11n access point.
It won’t win any fashion awards (nor does it need to), but this D-Link will certainly please anyone looking for high-speed wireless broadband. Moreover, you can connect directly to a draft 802.11n, 802.11g, or 802.11b access point via Infrastructure Mode (yes, it’s backwards compatible), or in a more round-about way in Ad-Hoc networking mode, connecting through another wireless adapter. Security comes by way of WEP, WPA, and WPA2 encryption support.
No word on pricing or availability, but with that FCC stamp, the D-Link DWA-643 Xtreme N Notebook ExpressCard should start shipping pretty soon.
