Atheros WLAN Chipset/Product for Home, Office and Metro Wi-Fi



Performance Innovation

Atheros is leading the WLAN performance innovation curve with our 802.11n XSPAN with Signal-Sustain Technology which delivers ~50% greater throughput at range versus conventional 2x2 MIMO solutions.  In fact, we have a history of looking for the most novel ways of delivering the very best wireless performance. We invented the first standards-enhanced WLAN technologies with Super G and Super AG, the only solutions to deliver 108 Mbps and use 40 MHz channel operation--now standardized with 11n.  Atheros XR  (eXtended Range) offers more than 2 times the range of standard 802.11g and a/g solutions, leveraging our Extreme Receive Sensitivity.

Enhanced Features

In addition to providing superior throughput and range, Atheros WLAN solutions for the home and office offer ease of use and interoperability with other networking solutions.

JumpStart for Wireless ™ enables the user to setup an Atheros-based network with the press of a button.  And, it will interoperate with any wireless device that is certified for Wi-Fi Protected Setup ™.  This enhancement makes it easy to add a wide of array of devices to your JumpStart-established personal wireless network such as  cellular and VoIP phones, digital cameras, MP3s, digital media players, gaming devices and set-top boxes.

To enable seamless operation with the state-of-the-art Vista™ computing platform, Microsoft has selected Atheros’ WLAN solutions for the home and office. The benefit is a reliable and richer user media experience.
