ZyXEL Announces P-335WT 802.11g 5-in-1 Firewall Router with Print Server

Maximizing Bandwidth Utilization, Printing and Security Services for Home Users

Hsinchu, May 5, 2005 -- ZyXEL Communications Corp. (TSE: 2391), world's largest DSL router provider, today unveils its P-335WT 5-in-1 Firewall Router designed exclusively for home and small office users. ZyXEL's P-335WT boasts print server features in addition to powerful 802.11g wireless firewall router, bandwidth management and Trend Micro Home Network Security Services (TMSS) features. The versatility of ZyXEL P-335WT empowers families or small offices to enjoy "print anywhere" convenience under a fast and secured broadband sharing environment.

ZyXEL P-335WT employs ZyXEL's Wireless g+ SuperSpeed technology, which increases the data transfer rate up to the amazing 125Mbps if paired with ZyXEL's g+ series wireless cards. In addition to its built-in 4-port switch, ZyXEL P-335WT also features printer sharing capability via an USB port, allowing every home or small office user to print wherever they need.

With robust bandwidth management features, ZyXEL P-335WT provides options for prioritizing bandwidths for services such as WWW, Xbox Live, VoIP, FTP, E-Mail and eMule downloading; and users are even free to block certain services to lessen the traffic. The design enables home and small office networks to run bandwidth-competing applications simultaneously while having the optimum bandwidth allocation.

In response to frequent network threats, ZyXEL P-335WT boasts comprehensive firewall protections to deter undesirable visits. Better yet, the virus scan and security threat assessment capabilities of Trend Micro Home Network Security Services (TMSS) have also been integrated into P-335WT, serving as the second protective line for home computers and networks. Furthermore, the Parental Control feature of TMSS monitors the activities and pages browsed by Web surfers, and offers a blocking mechanism to keep young people from inappropriate contents.

Thanks to the ZyXEL-exclusive OTIST technology ("One-Touch" Intelligent Security Technology), data encryption between ZyXEL P-335WT and the company's g+ series wireless cards can be activated by just pressing a stick out button on the router. The 256-bit WEP key, WPA and 802.1X WiFi encryption and authentication schemes also ensure the most stringent wireless security.
