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
install with plug and play, can be shared around the office and needs no
external power supply. For desktop users the USB2Ethernet adapter saves
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
modern 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet network."

The ELSA MicroLink USB2Ethernet adapter is priced at
inc VAT and is covered by a 2 year warranty.
