FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

New “Strong Security Made Simple,” Guest Access, and Wireless Networking Utility enhancements on Wireless G networking products further simplify the wireless networking experience

(Compton, CA) — August 11, 2005 — Belkin Corporation introduces its next-generation Easy Install Wizard with new features designed to make your wireless networking experience–from setup to enabling security to web-surfing–easier and more accessible.

Belkin’s Easy Install Wizard will include the “Strong Security Made Simple” setup feature, a quick and easy-to-use interface for setting up wireless security on routers. Because this security feature is standards-based, any Wi-Fi certified wireless client could securely associate to the network. The “Guest Access” feature in the Wizard enables an Internet-only connection for guest users. It increases security by having two passwords, one for local users and one for guest users. The local user password gives complete access to the network, while the guest user password provides access only to the Internet and will not allow accessibility to other computers on the local network.

Belkin’s new client Wireless Networking Utility features an intuitive graphical user interface that provides a visual representation of network connections, and the signal strength and security settings of a neighboring router(s) and/or access point(s), providing straightforward diagnostic and troubleshooting data–all of which make wireless networking easy.

These features will be available in the Belkin:
· Wireless G line (Router – F5D7230-4; Notebook Card – F5D7010; Desktop Card – F5D7000; USB Adapter — F5D7050): September 30, 2005
· Wireless G Plus line (Router F5D7231-4; Desktop Card — F5D7001; Notebook Card — F5D7011): Early spring 2006

“People are looking for ease of use and convenience, so we’re constantly trying to introduce ways to make the entire wireless networking experience simpler and more accessible,” explains Mark Reynoso, Sr. VP of Sales & Marketing. “Our new security and usability enhancements will make people more comfortable and satisfied with their experience.”

“Our targeted focus on user experience further distinguishes ourselves from our competition, helping us to evolve our leadership in networking usability,” continues Mr. Reynoso.
