Afraid to go into Billy's room? Don't worry, Westell has created the Access HRF Home Networking wireless solution. Access HRF is a wireless solution that allows a broadband Internet connection to be shared simultaneously among multiple network users, creating a mobile networking environment. So users can tell Billy to come down to dinner, and never go near the teenage wasteland.

Designed for residential customers with multiple PCs and high-speed Internet access or for at-home workers without direct access to a corporate LAN, Access HRF home networking provides a sphere of wireless access sufficient for a 2,000-3000 square foot building through walls, ceilings and floors. The Access HRF solution offering includes a Home RF Ethernet Bridge that connects to any DSL Ethernet or cable modem, PCMCIA cards for laptop use, and USB adapters for desktop computers. Access HRF supports bandwidth for up to 10 users to simultaneously download data and content, share documents, transfer large files, and use multimedia content on one broadband DSL or cable modem connection. Access HRF is compatible with the installed base of Westell ADSL modems, and with Westell's WebShare networking software. Access HRF is also compatible with most other ADSL and cable modems available on the market.
