March 6th, 2003

Irvine, CA - D-Link today announced that it is the world's first company to ship a router, PC card and cardbus adapters as part of its solution of multimode wireless 802.11a/802.11b/draft compliant 802.11g networking products. D-Link also announced it will ship its multimode A/B/G access point before month's end.

D-Link's new A/B/G product line supports each IEEE wireless networking standard including 802.11a, 802.11b and the draft compliant 802.11g specification.

"D-Link is the first to provide a multimode A/B/G router to drive the network to the Internet," said Steven Joe, President of D-Link. "Now, with
the release of our new multimode A/B/G line, D-Link delivers an all-in-one choice for wireless networking."

D-Link's A/B/G solution provides up to 54Mbps bandwidth in both .11a and .11g modes while remaining completely backwards compatible with 802.11b standard wireless networks and adapters. The product line presents a menu
of choices for various networking environments. Enterprises requiring high bandwidth (up to 54Mbps) for multiple users in a secure environment may choose to primarily select the 802.11a mode with its 8 non-overlapping
channels and access control list. Users requiring high bandwidth (up to 54Mbps) where longer range is required can employ the draft compliant 802.11g mode that provides the extended range of the 2.4GHz frequency. For
those users who already own 802.11b wireless adapters, the multimode products are completely compatible with the IEEE 802.11b standard. As users travel between the enterprise, home and hotspot environments, the
D-Link A/B/G solution roams seamlessly among the various standards.
