The Power of the Wi-Fire(TM) - Now With the Simplicity and Feel of Apple's AirPort!

BETHLEHEM, Pa., Jan. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- hField Technologies (www.hfield.com) has just launched a new generation of software for its world-renowned Wi-Fire((TM)) for use with the Macintosh. Now, Mac users who love the Wi-Fire's long range and high performance get the comfortable look and feel they're used to with Apple's AirPort.

Wi-Fire((TM)) is a compact, high-performance, long-range USB Wi-Fi Adapter. It's palm-sized, easy-to-use and, overall, the longest range adapter on the market. Its portability and long range make it a natural for travelers and other Wi-Fi users who want to connect at their convenience, not a network's whims. See high-resolution images of Wi-Fire((TM)) at http://www.hfield.com/newsroom/photos/.

With its integrated directional antenna, highly sensitive receiver, and proprietary software working together to enhance normal Wi-Fi signals, Wi-Fire((TM) )gives Windows, Linux and Macintosh users the freedom to connect to Wi-Fi networks when they want, where they want. Users benefit from the increased mobility and greater range, maintaining faster speeds at longer range in comparison to other standard Wi-Fi adapters.

The Wi-Fire((TM)) multiplies the effectiveness of wireless networks and eliminates those nasty deadspots that plague users. The Wi-Fire((TM)) allows users to connect to a Wi-Fi network from up to 1,000 feet -- more than three times the range of other 802.11 adapters -- often at significantly higher speeds, and even in locations where no wireless signal could be detected previously. Independent testing has shown the Wi-Fire((TM)) outperforms 802.11n adapters at distance; delivering greater throughput and a more stable connection.

Now, get even more convenience on the Mac with the NEW Wi-Fire Connection Manager 2.0 for Mac.

hField's new version 2.0 for Mac runs from a convenient unobtrusive icon in the Mac's Menu Bar, just like AirPort (http://hfield.com/images/WCM-2_0/WCM2_0MenuExtra.jpg). All of the important details about the connections around you -- and you'll see plenty with the Wi-Fire -- are revealed in the new GUI interface, which is easily launched from the Menu Extra (http://hfield.com/images/WCM-2_0/WCM2_0Window.jpg).

This newest version can be downloaded from http://www.hfield.com/download/Wi-FireInstaller_Mac_2_0.zip. It works on PPC and Intel Mac's with OS X 10.4, 10.5 and 10.6.

hField's Retail price for Wi-Fire((TM)) is $59.00 and is available now at http://www.hfield.com/buynow and participating retailers.

Prior hField models have been launched to rave reviews (http://www.hfield.com/reviews) and this new Software should be no exception. "Wi-Fire is the perfect device -- light weight and easy to use -- for the seriously mobile computer user with high bandwidth needs, and those who have problems connecting to their regular wireless network because of distance, obstacles or other interference," said Tom DiClemente, hField's CEO. "We're dedicated to empowering people to connect better, faster and more economically. And now, Wi-Fire offers a compelling Mac feel!"
