Intel to update wireless networking technology

Intel Corp. unveiled an update to its wireless networking technology Thursday, adding simpler software, improved security and support for a more robust, less interference-prone radio standard.

Notebooks based on the latest version of Intel's Centrino mobile technology will be able to connect to Wi-Fi networks that use the 802.11a standard as well as the more popular 802.11b and 802.11g standards, the chip-making giant said.

Though 802.11a is not widely used today, it supports more data traffic and uses a slice of the airwaves that isn't shared with microwave ovens, baby monitors and portable telephones. Users of 802.11b and 802.11g are susceptible to such interference, wrote Seattle Post.

According to the Information Week, along with the new chipset, Intel also is delivering the PROSet/Wireless Software version 9.0. The software includes a tool called the Intel Smart Wireless Solution, which is made up of a configuration wizard, automated security set up, and built-in troubleshooting capability.

The software will be able to detect and show all available networks, and offers a profile manager so users can more easily connect to different networks at home, in the office, or on the road, Johnson says. For enterprise users, the chipset will support the IEEE 802.11i security standard.
