IOGEAR has released its new Universal Wi-Fi N Adapter for connecting AV devices to a home network via a wireless router.

According to the company, the Universal Wi-Fi N Adapter works with any device featuring an ethernet port, with no brand or device-specific Wi-Fi USB adapter needed. Simply connect via ethernet and access is gained through the home’s network router.
IOGEAR’s Universal Wi-Fi N Adapter supports the IEEE 802.11n standard, meaning there is no need for cables or re-wiring of the home. Helping the adapter handle user demands, IOGEAR outfitted the GWU627 with dual antennas (1T1R) that provide data transfer rates of up to 150Mbps while reducing Wi-Fi dead zones in the wireless environment.
“An abundance of quality digital content is creating demand for devices that can conveniently access and stream all our music, videos, games and more,” said Bill Nguyen, senior marketing manager at IOGEAR. “IOGEAR’s goal is to make connectivity dynamic and the Universal Wi-Fi N Adapter does this by providing wireless internet access to fully utilize a game console, Blu-ray, DVR, or HD TV’s built-in widgets, while offering convenience of placement and eliminating cable clutter.”
The unit also features a WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) button offering a quick and secure network setup. On a new wireless network, WPS will automatically configure it with a network name (SSID) and strong WPA data encryption and authentication.
The Universal Wi-Fi N Adapter, model GWU627, is now shipping with an MSRP of $49.95.
