Wireless Cable/DSL Router and AeroLAN ™ PC Card

Enjoy the Freedom and Flexibility of Wireless Internet
Sharing your high-speed Internet connection makes a lot of sense. Drilling holes into walls and running ugly cables all over the place – doesn’t. Introducing the stylish new FriendlyNET Wireless Cable/DSL Router, the easiest way to share high-speed Internet access, printer, files, and other resources – with or without wires.

Wireless Freedom
Share your cable or DSL Internet service ... without wires! • Start with two 10/100 switch ports now and upgrade to wireless in the future. • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

Ever dream about surfing the web while lying in bed? How about checking email during a long, boring meeting? Now you can with the FriendlyNET router. Just plug in the Asanté AeroLAN™ Wireless module and you can connect wirelessly with your desktop or notebook computers from up to 150 feet away. Going on a trip? Plug in your FriendlyNET router and let it automatically maintain a connection up to 350 feet away – say, at the bar or down by the pool.

Advanced Physical and Network Security
Designed from the ground up to provide multiple levels of security, the FriendlyNET router contains a natural firewall that protects your local computers from outside intruders. The security-hardened FriendlyNET router is the only IP network address exposed to the outside elements. With spread spectrum signaling, domain access control, WEP (wired equivalent privacy) encryption and group security, the router safeguards all your wireless data transmissions from nosey neighbors. To guard against unauthorized removal or theft, the sleek Asanté FriendlyStack™ case design features special hooks (to attach security cables) and four mounting holes (including two concealed holes). These security features are ideal for securing the router in hotels, schools and other public areas where physical security is essential.

Outstanding Performance and Flexibility
Unlike other wireless routers, the FriendlyNET router was designed for maximum network performance at an affordable price. Start with the integrated 2-port 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet switch. When directly connecting two computers in the same room, network traffic moves at up to 100 Mbps (200 Mbps in full duplex mode) – ideal for backing up data from a notebook computer to a desktop machine. As your network needs grow, add a 10/100 switch to connect up to 253 users over standard Fast Ethernet cabling. When you need wireless support, the FriendlyNET FR3002AL is ready. Plug an Asanté AeroLAN PCMCIA card into the router and begin talking with other 802.11b compatible devices—including Apple AirPort.

Share Printers
Here’s a cost-effective way to share a color inkjet or laser printer. Instead of dedicating a computer to act as a print server, let the FriendlyNET router handle that for you. Now you have the freedom to share a parallel port printer through a 10/100 Fast Ethernet network or wirelessly—from anywhere in your home or office.
