December 31, 2002
The AirStation G54 Broadband Router Access Point is based on Broadcom's 54g chipset.
Buffalo Technology is now shipping two draft-standard 802.11g wireless products: the AirStation G54 Broadband Router Access Point (AP) (model WBR-G54) and the wireless CardBus Adapter (model WLI-CB-G54).
"G54 promises wireless network performance like we've never seen before, and we are truly excited we can offer our customers the industry's first draft standard 802.11g technology for their home and small-to-medium office networks that is backwards compatible with widely installed 802.11b technology," said Morikazu Sano, vice president of Buffalo Technology.
Based on Broadcom's 54g chipset, the AirStation router AP contains a four-port Ethernet switch and incorporates improved security with Multi-Session VPN Passthrough (IPSec and PPTP) support and upgradeable firewall features. The AirStation 54Mbps AP will also support 802.1x and WPA with TKIP and AES with a future firmware upgrade.
