IOXperts UPDATES ITS 802.11b DRIVER FOR MAC OS 9

CAMBRIDGE, MA, March 20, 2003 - IOXperts has released v. 1.0.2 of its 802.11b driver for Mac OS 9. Like their current Mac OS X wireless driver, it supports more than 60 different 802.11b wireless networking cards on PowerBooks equipped with PC Card slots. This new release also fixes some bugs and includes support for the Short Preamble feature, which is intended to improve network throughput when transmitting streaming video or voice.

IOXperts' 802.11b drivers give Mac users a broad choice of wireless cards, including many popular models from Agere, Lucent, Linksys, and Netgear. The drivers support AppleTalk (with an AppleTalk-compatible base station), 64- and 128-bit WEP, and listing of available networks. Microsoft's Broadband Wireless Notebook Adapter (MN-520), and the Siemens SpeedStream Wireless PCMCIA Card are now supported, too.

PRICING AND AVAILABILITY

Pricing is USD $19.95 for use with a single wireless card.

The driver may be downloaded from the IOXperts web site at <http://www.ioxperts.com/80211b.html>. The driver will run in trial mode for 30 minutes at a time until it is registered.

Each license is tied to the MAC address of the card registered and may be used (with that card) on multiple computers with both the Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X versions of the driver. Existing Mac OS X customers can simply enter their current serial number to unlock the Mac OS 9 driver. And vice versa, of course.
