million in cash. The acquisition will be accounted for as a purchase

"Through the acquisition of Farallon we are further extending our reach in
the home, small office, public and private enterprise (including education)
and broadband service provider markets, where there is currently a huge
need for broadband networking solutions. We are also adding a vital
component to our product offeringsMacintosh compatibility," said David C.

products not only complement our existing product lines, but also extend
our wirefree broadband networking capabilities."

"We are very excited about the combination of Farallon and Proxim," stated
Richard Maslana, president and CEO of Farallon Communications, Inc. "We
expect that the joined companies will provide our customers with
significantly improved sales and marketing reach through the
well-established Proxim retail and VAR/distributor channels worldwide, and
access to many exciting new product opportunities through Proxims wirefree
broadband networking development expertise."

Georganne Benesch, former executive vice president of Farallon, will serve
as vice president and general manager of Proxims growing home and small
business broadband networking sector. Farallon CEO and president, Richard
Maslana will assist Benesch in the transition.

Mr. King added, "We look forward to integrating Farallons team of highly
talented staff members and benefiting from Farallons 14 years of
experience in the market. This is yet another step in our efforts to
innovate the best products and meet the increasing customer demand for
broadband networking products."

This announcement follows two recent acquisitions by Proxim. In January
2000, Proxim announced its acquisition of Microlor, Inc. a leader in
developing unlicensed spread spectrum wireless technology. (See the news
release dated January 25, 2000.) In December 1999, Proxim announced its
acquisition of Wavespan, a developer of wireless broadband access
solutions. (See the news release dated December 28, 1999.) All three
acquisitions add to the technology base and market reach of Proxim.
