Gigabytes launches world´s first wireless desktop router with PCI interface

Taipei, Taiwan March 1st 2005 - GIGABYTE Technology®, a leading manufacturer of motherboards, VGA cards and other computing hardware solutions, today announced the unveiling of the world’s first wireless PCI router – AirCruiser G Desktop Router. Once installed and connected, the AirCruiser G Desktop Router allows users to share network resources over the 10/100Mbps LAN port as well as enjoy wireless speeds of up to 54Mbps.

Once installed and the wireless network configured, it becomes an ‘always-on’ device – no need to fuss over plugging in power adapters or accidentally tripping over wires/cables and disrupting Internet access.  Now, end-user’s can realize significant space-saving benefits on their desks, shelves or wherever they’d traditionally deploy a wireless router.

The AirCruiser G Desktop Router’s PCI interface is a breakthrough in wireless networking technology.  Don’t be fooled by its striking similarity to a typical wireless PCI adapter; two Ethernet ports plus an antenna connector are the key to distinguish it from an ordinary wireless adapter.  By offering functionality such as your choice of security settings 64 or 128-bit WEP, 802.1x and WiFi® Protected Access (WPA), URL blocking, support for VPN (pass-through), static and dynamic routing and built-in DHCP server, the AirCruiser G Desktop Router truly is ideal for those creating their first wireless network, and equally suitable for the more demanding needs of a SOHO environment.  Plus, the antenna that comes packaged with the AirCruiser G Desktop Router is unlike any other in that there is a blue LED atop the tip which will flash at intervals – the shorter the interval, the higher the wireless data transmission rate.  It has a beefed up 3dBi gain antenna as compared with the typical 2dBi bundled with most routers on the market and that translates into better wireless performance!

“The AirCruiser G Desktop Router is a testament to our commitment to product innovation,” said Tony Liao, Associate Vice-President Channel Business, GIGABYTE Technology. “A wireless network should be both easy-to-use and setup as well as unobtrusive; the AirCruiser G Desktop Router is the first solution on the market that addresses these two areas.”
 
The AirCruiser G Desktop Router features:
· Interoperability with 54Mbps (802.11g) and 11Mbps (802.11b) devices
· Single 10/100Mbps Ethernet LAN port
· Full static & dynamic routing
· Built-in DHCP server
· 64/128-bit WEP encryption, 802.1x and WPA security
· UPnP™ (Universal Plug and Play)
· Dynamic DNS, URL blocking and VPN pass-through support
· WDS bridging

The AirCruiser G Desktop Router (GN-BC01) will be available at the end of March through select retail, E-commerce and all authorized GIGABYTE distribution channels with an estimated street price of $62.  The GN-BC01 package includes the router itself, an Ethernet patch cable, power adapter interconnect cables, a 3dBi antenna with a magnetic base mount and a Quick Installation guide.  Free firmware upgrades will be available for download on the product page on GIGABYTE’s website.
