With wireless-enabled client PCs, users with laptop, notebook and hand-held devices can move freely within a campus environment while maintaining uninterrupted access to centrally located data.

In 802.11b/g mode, based on direct sequence spread spectrum (DSSS) technology and operating in the 2.4 GHz band, the EM-500AG provides a FastEthernet-like data rate of up to 54 megabits per second (Mbps).

In 802.11a mode, the EM-500AG is a 5GHz 54Mbps (108Mbps in turbo mode) Wireless LAN client adapter that is Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) 802.11a-compliant 32 bit mini PCI adapter that operates in the UNII-1 and UNII-2 bands. The ultra high speed and throughput enables the rapid wireless transfer of bandwidth-intensive data such as multimedia streams and large data files within the enterprise.

For investment protection, the EM-500AG conforms to the IEEE 802.11a, 802.11b and 802.11g standards, ensuring interoperability with equipment available from a variety of vendors. It is fully compatible with most popular network operating systems. The EM-500AG can be seamlessly integrated into wired Ethernet networks, as a complement or alternative to the wired LAN products available today.


Some laptops (e.g. Dell Inspiron 8000 series) need a mini-coaxial jumper cable to interconnect the integrated the antenna and the card. We sell these jumper cables for $19.95 each.


This Mini-PCI card works in almost ANY laptop with a mini PCI slot, and integrated antenna. This includes, but is not limited to Dell Inspiron 4000, 4100, 4150, 5000, 5100, 600m 8000, 8100, 8200, 8500, Latitude C600, C610, C620, C640, C800, C810, C820, C840, D600, D610, D800, D810, Precision M50 Workstation notebooks; Toshiba Tecra, Satellite Pro, some IBM Thinkpad, ArmComputer CR10 and MANY MANY OTHERS!!!

Certain Toshiba and ARM laptops require special instructions for successful installation. Please mention that you have a Toshiba when ordering.
