Networking Leader Ships First Products With SecureEasySetup(TM) Feature

IRVINE, Calif., July 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Linksys(R), a Division of
Cisco Systems, Inc., the recognized leading provider of VoIP, wireless
and networking hardware for the consumer, Small Office/Home Office
(SOHO) and small business markets, today announced it has begun
shipping products with SecureEasySetup (SES) technology. SES enables
users to set up and add security to their wireless networks with a
push of a button. Linksys is adding the SES feature to a number of
products in its line of Wireless-G and Wireless-G with SpeedBooster
products at no extra cost.

SES Technology

SecureEasySetup enables consumers to effortlessly establish their
wireless networks and activate Wi-Fi Protected Access(TM) (WPA)
security by simply pushing one button on the router and one button on
the wireless device they want to attach to the network. Once the
feature is activated, SES creates a secured, private connection
between devices, automatically configures the network's Service Set
Identifier (SSID), and enables WPA security. Automatic configuration
eliminates the manual passphrase, or key, entry required by
traditional setup for the enabling of WPA. Customers are no longer
required to have experience configuring a network to create a wireless
network, they can now simply push buttons to go wireless.
