Category :
A NIC or Network Interface Card is a circuit board or chip which allows the computer to communicate to other computers on a network. When connected to the network, computers can share websites, files, printers and other resources. The most popular networking standard at the moment is Ethernet, which one can recognize by the rectangular connectors with eight wires in them. Wireless network with the 802.11b and the faster 802.11g standard is also increasingly popular, both at home and in the office, though it is not yet as fast as wired (ethernet) network. A public place where you can use wireless internet is called a "hot spot".

ZyXEL NWD-170N is the perfect solution for home users demanding cutting-edge, versatile networking devices. Taking advantage of Draft IEEE 802.11n technology, the NWD-170N can efficiently pinpoint client computers and select adequate methods to exchange radio signals. Coupled with Draft 802.11n clients, the NWD-170N can truly push wireless coverage to the limit. With the upcoming IEEE 802.11n technology, the NWD-170N can eliminate dead zones and extend coverage up to 4 times, while retaining the backward-compatibility with all 802.11b/g devices.

Enhanced Wireless Security and Privacy
In addition to the basic 64/128/152-bit WEP encryption, new wireless security mechanisms such as 802.1x authentication and Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key (WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK) are employed by NWD-170N to enhance network protection. These refined security measures allow only authorized users to access the network in order to protect data from being tapped during wireless transmissions.

Easy Installation with Automatic Multilingual Interface
The auto setup wizard helps you install and setup wireless connections without hassle. The intuitive user interface guides you through the configuration process with the language of choice, or automatically switches to the language corresponding to the Windows regional setting.
