- PRESS RELEASE
US Robotics has announced that its ground-breaking wireless cards now support users of open-source Linux operating systems, allowing 100 Mbps super-fast wireless access under Linux for the first time.
"We're delighted to be able to work with Linuxant to ensure that Linux users are aware that their US Robotics wireless cards can now operate with DriverLoader under Linux, at their full 100 Mbps capability, as well as supporting traditional 11, 22 and 54 Mbps networks," said Tony Field, EMEA product manager at US Robotics.
DriverLoader, a revolutionary solution developed by Linux specialist, software developer and services company Linuxant, allows users of US Robotics' USR5410 mobile wireless card and the USR5416 desktop PCI adapter to enjoy the full advantage of 100 Mbps wireless network connection under Linux on notebooks or desktop computers, with the same hardware drivers that US Robotics ships for Windows.
"We are proud to give owners of US Robotics' high speed networking products the freedom to use them under the operating system of their choice." said Marc Boucher, president of Linuxant. "This means super-fast, secure, reliable 100 megabit networks are now open to Linux users with US Robotics' products."
