To cater to users who require a wireless USB solution that is both compact and fast, ASUS has released the ASUS WL-160N – the world’s smallest 802.11n USB 2.0 wireless card. This small and compact marvel supports the latest 802.11n draft 2.0 specifications for fast data transfers; and is fully compatible with 802.11b/g standards.

Designed with a compact and small outlook – with dimensions of only 9cm(L) x 2.7cm(W) x 0.9cm(H), the WL-160N is the world’s smallest 802.11n USB 2.0 card. With such a small size, the WL-160N is ideally matched with your PC and NB sizes and can fit easily into cramped environments.

Recognizing the value of the new WiFi standard, ASUS’ WL-160N has been honored with the accolade of being a WI-FI CERTIFIED 802.11n Draft 2.0 product. This wireless card is also backward compatible with previous 802.11 b/g standards – making it recognized for industry-wide interoperability and adherence to security protocols. Utilizing MIMO technology, the WL-160N will have a throughput of over 100Mbps – faster than most normal wired solutions. It will also reduce deadspots and provide improved coverage distances in comparison to previous G standards.

The WL-160N is able to provide support for multiple operating systems – Windows Vista 32 and 64 bit versions, as well as Mac OS 10.3 and 10.4 versions. A user-friendly setup wizard makes it simple to setup by installing the driver and following simple instructions.

The WL-160N works in both an ad-hoc network mode as well as an infrastructure network mode. To enhance its functions to provide maximum performance, it is recommended that it be used in conjunction with ASUS’ WL-500W Super Speed N wireless router. The WL-160N also provides enhanced security for users by supporting WEP, WPA and WPA2 security protocols.

Bundled together with the WL-160N is an external cradle that provides a stable platform during usage – allowing users the option of placing the WL-160 in a location suitable for the best coverage and performance.
