Proxim, who recently acquired Farallon, today made three announcement today:
- Its new Farallon NetLINE Wireless Broadband Gateway, an AirPort-compatible (802.11b) gateway for both wireless and wired networks. The $400 base station due to ship later this month offers NAT (for sharing a single IP), DHCP support, a built-in firewall, and Web-based management.
- Its Farallon SkyLINE PCI Card is now shipping, providing older Macs with access to AirPort and 802.11b networks. The card is available in a bundle with the Farallon PC-card for $240 or as a standalone product to international distributors for bundling with country-specific PC Cards, and to consumers who have already purchased a PC Card, for $70.
- Mac support for its wirefree home networking suite, Symphony-HRF is due later this month. The Symphony PC Card allows users to share a single broadband connection via the Symphony-HRF Cordless Gateway (2.4 GHz) and share files and printers among up to ten computers over distances up to 150 feet (50 meters) through walls, ceilings, floors and other standard home obstacles.
