Las Vegas -- D-Link announced it has worked closely with Atheros to be the first in the industry to introduce finished goods in extending the wireless range with a firmware that can be downloaded free of charge as an enhancement to the award-winning 802.11g Xtreme G Wireless Networking family. The firmware extends the wireless network range by 100% while remaining completely compatible with 802.11g and 802.11b wireless networks. The new Atheros powered extended range Xtreme G technology improves radio sensitivity to extend the signal for users in large homes and buildings as well as in places previously difficult-to-reach such as areas with concrete walls and steel girders. The enhancement will be available as a free firmware upgrade to Xtreme G networking products beginning mid-February.

The new D-Link Xtreme G wireless architecture provides enhanced radio receive sensitivity - up to 105dBm, over 20 db better than the 802.11 specification. With increased sensitivity, wireless clients at a longer range are better able to identify and process signal packets. At shorter distances, increased sensitivity translates to enhanced throughput performance.

"Now Xtreme G extends a very strong signal throughout the house, eliminating dead spots in the furthest reaches of the home," said Steven Joe, President and CEO of D-Link. "Independent tests have proven that Xtreme G delivers fast performance with a high bandwidth saturation, so extending the distance should really help the typical user with end-to-end processing with minimal effect to the network."

The D-Link Xtreme G solution features robust security to protect the wireless network from intruders, complying with the latest wireless networking security protocols, including WEP encryption and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) support for both 802.1x and WPA-PSK. The products are also capable of supporting the government-grade AES encryption and upcoming 802.11i standards. D-Link's Xtreme G wireless networking solution includes the Xtreme G DI-624 Wireless Router with 4-port switch, the Xtreme G DWL-G650 Wireless CardBus Adapter, Xtreme G DWL-G520 Wireless PCI Adapter, the DWL-G810 Wireless to Ethernet Bridge and the Xtreme G DWL-2000AP Wireless Access Point.
