IRVINE, CA—May 8, 2008—Sonnet Technologies, a leader in upgrades and useful accessories for Apple® Mac® desktop and notebook computers, announces the immediate availability of the Presto™ Gigabit Pro PCI network adapter card, the Presto Gigabit PCIe Pro PCI Express® network adapter card, and the Presto Gigabit Ethernet Pro ExpressCard/34 network adapter card. These Sonnet Gigabit Ethernet cards expand or add Gigabit Ethernet connectivity in any compatible computer, and offer enhanced performance through support for link aggregation with onboard Ethernet ports, and jumbo packet data transfers.

Presto Gigabit Pro network adapter cards deliver enhanced networking support in compatible computers and offer gigabit speeds over common CAT-5 cabling, so costly cable replacement is unnecessary to support the higher performance. These Sonnet cards are simple to configure and offer plug-and-play installation in Macintosh® computers. Presto Gigabit Pro network adapter cards’ 1000/100/10BaseT auto-negotiation and full/half duplex communication support allow them to be used in most networks.
