GlobeSurfer X.1 ships

nova media has launched the GlobeSurfer X.1, a WLAN b/g/n router that connects via ethernet or 3G modem. The router has two 100 Mbps ethernet ports, a USB 2.0 port for a 3G connection and a standard USB 2.0 port that supports an external drive or offers print-serving with an attached printer. It uses a web interface for configuration and arrives with a quick setup wizard for assembling a local network.

The GlobeSurfer X.1 supports WEP, WPA and WPA2, has a built-in pre-configured firewall and provides an expert mode for user-defined configurations. The X.1 also has DSL failover, which activates the 3G network if the DSL feed should break down. It will automatically switch back to DSL when the feed returns.

The GlobeSurfer X.1 is now available for 130 -- about $185. It works with Mac OS X 10.3.9 or higher and Windows 2000, XP and Vista.
