Easy Network Connections for Notebooks with ELSA MicroLink USB2Ethernet Adapter Wednesday 6 December 2000 PDF Print THEALE, 5 December 2000 - Internet access and computer graphics vendor ELSA has introduced a low-cost neat solution for notebook users who need casual access to the company LAN. The ELSA MicroLink USB2Ethernet adapter, is suited to organisations where one or more notebook user needs fast and simple access to the office network. Because it uses the USB port on the PC it is easy to install with plug and play, can be shared around the office and needs no external power supply. For desktop users the USB2Ethernet adapter saves the time and hassle of installing a PCI based Ethernet card and frees up PCI slots for other boards. ELSA's product manager Peter Huddleston commented, "Most notebook users have to log on to a LAN to share files or access the Internet. This is a simple solution at a fraction of the cost of a docking station, as a standard RJ45 connection allows direct and flexible connectivity to either a conventional 10Mbps Ethernet network, or even to a modern 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet network." The ELSA MicroLink USB2Ethernet adapter is priced at £39.99 inc VAT and is covered by a 2 year warranty.
