Buffalo intros new home networking solution
Buffalo on Monday introduced its Nfiniti Wireless-N Essential Router & Access Point, the WHR-HP-G300N, along with the Nfiniti Wireless-N High Power Ultra-Compact USB 2.0 Adapter, WLI-UC-GNHP. Meant for wireless home or small office networks, the router has enough performance to handle multiple intensive video streams and reaches the spec's peak 300Mbps. The adapter is faster than built-in Wi-Fi solutions, making it an upgrade option to existing, built-in wireless modules in notebooks or desktop PCs.
The router supports typical security layers such as WPA2, WPA-PSK (TKIP, AES), and WEP up to 128-bit. It has four Ethernet ports for LAN connections in addition to the usual WAN Ethernet link for the source.
The Nfiniti Adapter supports Buffalo's in-house AirStation One-Touch Secure System (AOSS) and lets users set up high speed wireless networks quickly.
Buffalo's WHR-HP-G300N and WLI-UC-GNHP will be available in early November, priced at $70 and $50, respectively. The USB adapter only officially supports Windows systems.
