AirPort is the cutting-edge wireless networking technology that lets you get on the Internet from anywhere in your home; school; or office--without cables; additional phone lines; or complicated networking hardware. And AirPort is fast: with a data rate of up to 11 Mbps; AirPort enables high-speed wireless communications within a radius of approximately 150 feet from a base station. As thousands of Mac users have discovered; to their delight; AirPort lets you use your Mac for work; play; surfing the Web; or sending and receiving e-mail from just about anywhere. Similar to the base station of your cordless telephone; the AirPort base station includes a 56K modem for your phone line; plus two Ethernet ports. AirPort is broadband ready. And because Apple designed the hardware and software--and designed them to work smoothly together--you'll find AirPort simple to set up and use. AirPort is based on the IEEE 802.11b wireless standard and is WiFi certified for interoperability with other 802.11-compliant products (including PCs). That means you can use your AirPort card at thousands of wireless-enabled locations--including airports; coffee shops; and at least 90;000 hotel rooms in the U.S. alone. If you're running a network of PC users; all you need is one AirPort-enabled Apple computer (iBook; PowerBook G4; iMac; or Power Mac G4) to set up your base of wireless operations. The AirPort base station comes with a handy 10/100Base-T Ethernet connector that can act as the hub of your cross-platform universe.
