Features and benefits



Quad-Mode Solution for maximum flexibility

Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN provides deployment flexibility and connectivity convenience by offering a quad mode (supporting 802.11a/b/g/n) product, which is capable of connecting to new "Connect with Intel® Centrino® processor technology" wireless N Access Points / Routers, but can also connect to any of the legacy Wi-Fi standards, 802.11a, b or g.



Up to 5x faster¹

Data rates up to 300Mbps offer major improvement over today's 802.11a/g products that deliver 54Mbps. This helps overcome network capacity issues, allowing increased simultaneous network activity for large file transfers, network backups, streaming video, multi-player gaming, VoIP and more.


Up to 2x greater range¹

MIMO, diversity and three antennae support enable better wireless reception for greater bandwidth at farther distances. This helps reduce the number of "dead zones," dropped data packets, and network re-connects, helping to dramatically improve connectivity throughout the home and enabling more consistent coverage in the enterprise.
