Targus WiFi AutoSwitch v.2.00.016 for Windows Released

Targus has finished all preliminary engineering testing of the Targus WiFi AutoSwtich Utility version 2.00.016 for Windows. It is now ready for security-conscious enterprise customers to use in their environment. Please contact your Targus Docktor or Targus sales representative to learn more.

It can be downloaded for free on each of the Targus Universal Docking Station products. Current users can also right-click on the task tray icon and select "Check for updates" to update their current version if enabled by their IT department. The utility is also deployable with various options via Group Policy tools.

Many PC OEM provide such a utility as part of their "bloatware" however it is usually deleted by IT (not part of the company PC image). The utility turns off the WiFi when the Targus Universal Dock's Ethernet connection is being used, thus saving power. When the dock is disconnected, it turns the WiFi network adapter back on. In addition to saving power, this is great for saving IP addresses (and bandwidth) on the corporate LAN, albeit wireless or wired. Also, Targus' GbE port typically runs at up to 920Mbps or about 10 times faster than most WiFi. This also improves security by offering fewer ports for hackers to enter into the corporate LAN.

Release Notes

This version of the Targus MAC Address Clone Utility adds support for Targus - latest docking stations.
