Wireless Basics (continued)
Standards-Based Technology
The DWL-G800AP Wireless Range Extendert utilizes the 802.11b and the 802.11g
The IEEE 802.11g standard is an extension of the 802.11b standard. It increases the
data rate up to 54 Mbps within the 2.4GHz band, utilizing OFDM technology.
This means that in most environments, within the specified range of this device, you will
be able to transfer large files quickly or even watch a movie in MPEG format over your
network without noticeable delays. This technology works by transmitting high-speed
digital data over a radio wave utilizing OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing)
technology. OFDM works by splitting the radio signal into multiple smaller sub-signals
that are then transmitted simultaneously at different frequencies to the receiver. OFDM
reduces the amount of crosstalk (interference) in signal transmissions. The D-Link DWL-
G800AP will automatically sense the best possible connection speed to ensure the
greatest speed and range possible.
The DWL-G800AP is compatible, in default mode, with the following wireless products:
D-Link AirPlus Xtreme G DWL-G650
Wireless Cardbus Adapters used with laptop computers
D-Link AirPlus Xtreme G DI-624-Firmware 2.37 or newer (Rev.C)
Wireless Router
The DWL-G800AP is also interoperable with other 802.11g and 802.11b
standards-compliant devices.
