cyberPIXIE, Inc. today announced the commercial availability of its Install Wizard, an advanced software tool designed to make it significantly faster and easier to deploy wireless local area networks (WLANs).
The Install Wizard software (patent-pending) has been optimized for maximum ease of use, simplifying the installation of WLAN PC cards on end-users' laptops and eliminating the common complexities of deploying and configuring wireless devices. The installation and configuration process is fully automated, requiring no user intervention.
How it Works
As soon as the Install Wizard CD is inserted, the software automatically opens and on-screen instructions direct the user to insert the WLAN card into an open PCMCIA slot. The software loads the proper drivers and automatically configures the necessary parameters. In less than two minutes, the default Internet Browser, or other specified application, is launched automatically, connecting the user to network resources.
