The Instant Wireless Presentation Gateway from Linksys enables wireless PC users to project presentations and other data onto VGA-equipped devices, such as projectors, monitors and LCD panels, without physically wiring each PC to the projector. Using 802.11b wireless networking, WiFi-enabled users take turns controlling the presentation display by typing in pre-assigned key codes. The Gateway uses an Intersil PRISM 2.5 chipset housed in a MiniPCI slot and runs on a Linux-based OS. Compliant with IEEE's 802.11b industry standard, the Gateway works with compliant wireless devices of any brand.

Free Webinar: Linux Backup and Recovery
Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.
In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
