SMC Bests Airport Express: SMCWRK-G

I suspect one of these is going to find a home in my backpack fairly soon.

SMC Bests Airport Express: SMCWRK-G. imageSMC has announced a new portable wireless access point a la the Airport Express. They’re calling it the “EZ Connect g 2.4GHz 802.11g Wireless Traveler s Kit SMCWTK-G,” but we’ll probably just call it the SMCWRK-G or Dance Panda Mandy, as it suits us. For what it lacks in good looks it makes up in features, as the SMCWRK-G can do everything the Airport Express can do and more (save the iTunes streaming), including act as an Ethernet bridge. It might not be attractive, but it’s $30 cheaper, ringing in at just $100.

Perennial Wi-Fi smart guy Glenn Fleishmann weighs in with a little more detail at Wi-Fi Networking News.
