5G Wireless Solutions Introduces LongRanger™ WiFi Range Extender Product -- New End-User Device Enhances Laptop Signal Strength Back to Base Stations

MARINA DEL REY, Calif. – Sept. 28, 2005 – 5G Wireless Solutions, Inc., an emerging leader in the wireless broadband industry and a wholly-owned portfolio company of 5G Wireless Communications, Inc. (OTCBB:FGWC - News), a business development company, announced today that it has introduced the LongRanger, a new product that helps to extend the effective service range of its wireless broadband base stations to laptops, desktops and PDAs.

"The LongRanger was designed for users who absolutely, positively have to connect," stated Jerry Dix, CEO of 5G Wireless Communications. "With the LongRanger kit, a remote user can take advantage of extended distances, well beyond the limits of traditional WiFi hot spots."

The new product helps solve an industry-wide problem. While access points and base stations do an effective job of getting a WiFi signal out to a user community, many laptops and PDAs do not produce a strong enough return path signal to get back to the source. The LongRanger not only boosts the range factor but also increases connection speeds in the process.

The easy to install "plug and play" unit does not require any special software drivers, functions independently of one's operating system, and does not require a PCI or PCMCIA slot. It provides robust connections in frequency-hostile environments while remaining compliant to the IEEE 802.11b standard, and extends flexible wireless access to a wide variety of commercial hardware including industrial equipment, barcode readers, medical scanners, and network cameras.

The LongRanger will be made available in both USB and traditional power source models, and can increase wireless broadband signal strength to well over a mile. And since it is 802.11b compliant, it will work with most manufacturers' access points and base stations. The 5G model will be introduced at the new Dana Point Harbor Wi-Fi network in Southern California and promoted in other distribution channels where immediate connectivity is required for laptops, desktops and PDAs.
