From the Manufacturer
If you are a network administrator, the versatile 802.11a/b/g-compatible DWL-AG530 expands your existing wireless network and protects your overall network investment. By installing DWL-AG530s in desktops throughout your organization, your employees can access wireless APs or routers from their desktop PCs. As your company expands or reorganizes you won't need to spend time and resources re-cabling Ethernet wires because wherever the workstation is relocated to, it will still be wirelessly connected to the network. When you add an 802.11a/b/g access point (D-Link AirPremier AG DWL-7100AP) or router (D-Link AirPremier AG DI-784), to your wireless network, you will have an complete wireless solution.
With the enhancement of D-Link 108AG, the DWL-AG530 can transfer data with a maximum wireless signal rate of up to 108Mbps in a pure D-Link 108AG environment through the use of new wireless technologies such as Packet Bursting, FastFrame, Compression and Encryption, and Turbo mode. This provides bandwidth large enough to handle video/audio streaming and Video on Demand (VoD) applications. The additional (802.11a) 5GHz band also offers a way to quickly transfer data in a frequency range that does not usually experience interference or interruptions.
WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) and 802.1x user authentication are both integrated into the DWL-AG530 chipset to offer enhanced security so employees can communicate with colleagues confidentially or access sensitive data. The DWL-AG530 is a high-performance, versatile PCI adapter meant for anyone who needs to connect their desktop PC to a wireless network whether at home, at school, or at the office.
Note: Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE Standard 802.11a and 802.11g specifications. Actual data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors lower actual data throughput rate.
