Other products include the Wireless PCI Adapter MN-730 for connecting desktops to the network; and the Wireless Notebook Kit MN-820, which provides everything needed to create a wireless network for a desktop and notebook.

Microsoft also unveiled the Xbox Wireless Adapter MN-740 for playing computer games with the company's Xbox console.

The new products will ship by the end of the month. The Microsoft Wireless Base Station MN-700 will sell for a retail price of $109; the Wireless Notebook Adapter MN-720, $84.95; the Wireless PCI Adapter MN-730, $84.95; the Wireless Notebook Kit MN-820, $179; and the Xbox Wireless Adapter MN-740, $139.
