5G Wireless Announces New G-Force 650™ Designed for Fast, Turnkey Deployments to Time Shares and Resorts

Wi-Fi Hardware Manufacturer 5G Wireless Adds G-Force 650™ Self-Contained Access Point-DSL Combination Unit to Its Popular Wi-Fi Base Station Line; The New Stand-Alone Unit Is Designed to Reduce Installation Times and Eliminate Cable Pulls

MARINA DEL REY, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 7, 2007 -- 5G Wireless Communications, Inc. (OTCBB: FGWI), a leader in the wireless broadband industry, today announced its new G-Force 650™, a self-enclosed "access point-DSL combination" unit. This new addition to the Wi-Fi deployment hardware line G-Force™ provides wireless Internet access with just a telephone connection which is ideally suited to anyone in the hospitality and time share industry that requires an easy-to-install device for supporting wireless networking needs.

Designed for use indoors, the G-Force 650 will enable fast installations without the usual cable pulls. The new 650 operates in the standard 802.11b/g wireless frequency range and has data rates up to 54 Mbps in 802.11g mode and 11 Mbps in the 802.11b mode. These mini-base stations are equipped with security features which allow different levels of security based on different end-user needs. Each unit also has remote management and maintenance capabilities via an easy-to-use web interface. Because of its minimal hardware requirements and quick Internet connectivity, the G-Force 650 is a cost-effective and quick installation solution for time shares and resorts needing immediate wireless coverage.

The G-Force 650 fills a need in this growing marketplace, increasing the speed installations and enlarging coverage areas. The company is now able to provide its own hardware for all applications of the company's broad range of equipment and wireless communication services. Additional functionality includes a "Watch Dog" timer that constantly monitors itself and reboots itself automatically in the event of a fail condition. This ensures no more than one minute of down time, 24 hours a day, without the need for on-site support. The unit includes internal gateway functionality that allows it to function by itself without the need of a separate router. Also, the unit comes with a wireless connection speed tool built right into the user interface which allows the end user to know exactly what their wireless connection speed is. This new product line is expected to contribute to 5G Wireless' ongoing sales and revenue growth.

Mr. Jerry Dix, 5G's CEO, said: "These low-cost, combined units are ideal for quick and neat installations and enable us to hide the units from guests and employees while maintaining complete and total coverage to the required areas. Among the latest location installments, the G-Force 650 is deployed at Arizona resorts The Links in Scottsdale, Sedona Summit, and Sedona Springs as well as the Lake Tahoe Resort in Nevada. 5G now offers a complete turnkey solution that includes hardware, installation support, 24/7 customer service and the "Tool Booth" authentication system provided as a result of our relationship with ICOA (OTCBB: ICOA).
