The Wi-Fi Alliance, the wireless LAN industrys major testing body, announced Tuesday that the first round of products based on the IEEE 802.11g standard amendment have completed Wi-Fi certification testing.
The latest products to receive the official Wi-Fi logo are:
- Atheros Communications Inc.s AR5001X+ Universal 802.11a/b/g Wireless Network Adapter
- Broadcom Corp.s 54g AP Reference Design - BCM94306-GAP
- Intersil Corp.s PRISM Duette PCMCIA Adapter Model ISL39000C
- Intersil Corp.s PRISM Duette Access Point Developers Kit Model ISL39300A

- Proxim Inc.s ORiNOCO AP-600b/g
- Texas Instruments Inc.s TNET1130 WLAN Cardbus Reference Design
- Texas Instruments Inc.s TNETWA622-g10-DP Access Point Reference Design
802.11g runs faster than but in the same radio frequency band as the popular 802.11b, so the two can interoperate.
The 802.11g testing process is the fourth Wi-Fi product certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance since the program began in March of 2000. Previous certification programs were for products based on IEEE 802.11a and 802.11b (including dual band products) and the Wi-Fi Protected Access security protocol.
