    Several things distinguish the G-220 from the average wireless adapter. The most prominent feature is the G-220s ability to serve as both a wireless client and access point; not only can it detect and access an existing wireless connection, but it can also act as a wireless hub. For example, say you have a wired internet connection on your host computer, but others want to connect wirelessly. The solution? Just plug the G-220 into the host computer and presto, others can connect to the internet via it, and no ad-hoc connectivity hassles to deal with. Refer to the diagram below for a visual perspective on the advantages of the Access Point function.

    If you already have a wireless access point, be it a router or a wireless bridge, the G-220s also functions as a normal wireless client. Simply plug it into an existing USB 2.0 or 1.1 (2.0 recommended) port and it will tap into your existing wireless connection in a few short moments. Below is a diagram highlighting the G-220s functionality as a wireless client.

    Another welcome feature is the addition of WPA security. In addition to the usual WEP encryption, the G-220 implements Wi-Fi Protect Access for a higher degree of security. This is especially useful for businesses or security-conscious home networkers.
