ABSTRACT
This article reports on the Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) capable digital subscriber line (DSL)modem launched by Qwest Communications International Inc. This device has wireless networking capability built in. Customers will save approximately $50 on their Wi-Fi network setup costs because Qwest's solution does not require additional hardware for the modem, just a wireless network card for each computer. Qwest is the first major telecommunications company to offer customers a wireless-ready modem, and the company also has decided to make this the standard modem for all of its new DSL customers. Qwest DSL customers will no longer need a direct Ethernet connection from their wireless-enabled computer to quickly send large files, photos, music or videos between computers in their home or over the Internet. In addition, the Actiontec Wireless DSL Gateway provides a 54 Megabits per second wireless connection within the home or small business, more than four times faster than the most common wireless-networking solution on the market. With Qwest's wireless-networking solution, consumers and small businesses can share their high-speed DSL connections so numerous people can use the Internet simultaneously while also making or receiving phone calls or sending faxes. In addition, customers can have more flexibility in where they connect to the Internet.
