Single-Port Bridge Suits 100BASE-T LANs
The BlueStreak Fast EtherPrint 10/100 offers a simple and affordable connection to 100BASE-T Ethernet that high-end, multiple-address bridges cannot supply. Using proprietary technology, Fast EtherPrint allows any 10BASE-T device, independent of protocol, to be connected to a 100BASE-T workgroup or network segment without a complex bridge or router. It works with printers, modems, CD-ROM jukeboxes, image processors and other fixed 10 Mbit devices. The BlueStreak Fast EtherPrint 10/100 sports a compact design measuring just 4" x 3", plug-and-play functionality requiring no software setup or hardware configuration, and a reset switch for easy re-powering. Diagnostic LEDs indicate link, transmit and receive operations for both 10 and 100 Mbit speeds. Dayna Communications, Inc., Salt Lake City, UT, (801) 269-7200, www.dayna.com.
