Intel My WiFi Tech Set To Make Connectivity Effortless

    January 27, 2009

Don’t be surprised if college students, business travelers, and people who simply have a lot of tech at home suddenly become a lot more fond of Intel.  The company has introduced something called My WiFi that aims make wireless communication between devices a lot simpler.

The new Intel My WiFi technology will, in short, allow users to connect up to eight different WiFi-enabled devices without the need for an access point.  The only catch is that they’ll have to own a Centrino 2-based laptop with Windows Vista, and then it just fills that role.

The end result is that a person can transfer data between printers, televisions, digital picture frames, webcams, cell phones, and various other stuff without a need for wires or having to jump through hoops.  Intel My WiFi is supposed to take care of all the connection details.

The data should move pretty easily between devices, too, since Intel My WiFi (which uses 802.11b and 802.11g Wi-Fi tech) matches conventional Wi-Fi networks in terms of range and speed.

The technology sounds like a real winner, all in all, and Intel’s released a short pocket guide and demo so far if you want more information.
