Taipei, Taiwan, December 31, 2009 --( SparkLAN Communications, Inc., a broadband wireless networking solution provider, and Ralink Technology, a leading developer of 802.11x chipsets, unveils a Smart Client Adapter based on Ralink’s router-on-a-chip RT3050, targeted at WISP and SOHO market users for simple wireless sharing.

SparkLAN WCR-150GN, embedded with RT3050 AP/ Router intelligent NIC that boasts a powerful MIPS24KEc processor, is a small-sized, 11n compatible portable Wi-Fi Smart Client Adapter that achieves a data rate up to 150Mbps. It is 3 times faster than the legacy 11g model but is priced less, making it more cost-effective. It can be powered-up by a laptop via a USB port, which eliminates the need to carry an extra power adapter.

The WCR-150GN Smart Client Adapter does not require a driver for installation, which greatly simplfies the set-up process, saving a lot of installation time. With this Plug and Play functionality, WCR-150GN is easy-to-use for everybody. Due to WCR-150GN’s small size, users can take it with them wherever they go, making it the ideal choice for travelers at the hotel or airport. It is also great for hotspot access at trade shows, business demos, and seminars.

“The latest 11n Smart Client Adapter has a higher cost performance (C/P) ratio,” says Mike Chen, CEO of SparkLAN. “It offers users advanced, cutting-edge wireless N technology that is affordable, reliable, and easy-to-use.
