Cisco Aironet 350 Series Client Adapters complement Cisco Aironet 1200 Series and 1100 Series access points. Available in PCMCIA and PCI form factors, these 802.11b-compliant client adapters quickly connect desktop and mobile computing devices to the wireless LAN.
Cisco Aironet offers a variety of clients for the 802.11b WLAN. These include:
■ PC Card: Standard PCMCIA product with attached end-cap antenna. Support both 40 and 128-bit encryption.
■ LM Card: PCMCIA card with MMCX connectors. This card allows the attachment of any of the Cisco antennas utilizing the MMCX RP-TNC adapter cables. An end-cap antenna is offered for use with the LM card, giving it the same functionality as the PC card. The LM card is shipped without an antenna, and supported with both 40 and 128-bit encryption.
■ PCI card: Standard PCI card typically used for desktop clients. The PCI card has the standard Cisco Aironet RP-TNC connector and can be used with all of the Cisco external antennas. The PCI card is shipped without an antenna, but is supported with both 40 and 128-bit encryption.
All Cisco Aironet client devices support IEEE 802.1X security including LEAP and EAP-TLS, for mutual authentication and dynamic per-user, per session WEP keys.
All Cisco Aironet client devices are capable of Load Balancing when used with Cisco Aironet Access Points.

Cisco Aironet 5 GHz 54 Mbps Wireless LAN Client Adapters complement the Cisco Aironet 1200 Series Access Point, providing a solution that combines mobility with the security and manageability required by businesses. The 802.11a-compliant CardBus adapter operates in the UNII-1 and UNII-2 bands to allow 54 Mbps throughput.
Cisco's innovative radio and antenna design delivers industry-leading 802.11a enterprise performance. It provides for maximum capacity and scalability across the enterprise through eight non-overlapping channels in the UNII-1 and UNII-2 bands. The integrated 5 dBi gain patch antenna optimizes range. The -68 dBm receive sensitivity at 54 Mbps provides high-data-rate range performance. Advanced signal processing in the Cisco Aironet 5 GHz Wireless LAN Client Adapter helps manage the multipath propagation often found in office environments and intelligent filtering addresses ambient noise and interference that can decrease network performance. Various transmit power settings on the Cisco Aironet client adapter enable you to select range capabilities.
CardBus: (IEEE) 802.11a-compliant adapter that operates in the UNII-1 and UNII-2 bands. The CardBus 32-bit interface handles 400-6000 Mbps.
