802.11n ExpressCard at FCC

The FCC today approved the D-Link DWA-643, one of the first 802.11n Wi-Fi adapters for PCs with ExpressCard/34 slots. The new addition to the company's Xtreme N line is said to require the extra speed of a 64-bit ExpressCard slot to deliver its full potential: the new card can reach a maximum 300Mbps connection rate when connecting using its draft version of 802.11n, far outstrpping the 54Mbps of 802.11g. Connecting to an Xtreme N router is also simplified, according to the company; the ExpressCard module is intelligent enough to recognize the company's other devices and can connect automatically. Security is promised through optional WEP and WPA, and backwards compatibility exists for 802.11b and 802.11g networks. No official release date was revealed in the FCC filing, but the approval should herald a launch early next year. [Via MobileWhack]
