Wireless-G is the upcoming 54Mbps wireless networking standard that's almost five times faster than the widely deployed Wireless-B (802.11b) products found in homes, businesses, and public wireless hotspots around the country - but since they share the same 2.4GHz radio band, Wireless-G devices can also interoperate with existing 11Mbps Wireless-B equipment.
Since both standards are built in, you can protect your investment in existing 802.11b infrastructure, and migrate to the new screaming fast Wireless-G standard as your needs grow.
The Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router is really three devices in one box. First, there's the Wireless Access Point, which lets you connect Wireless-G or Wireless-B devices to the network. There's also a built-in 4-port full-duplex 10/100 Switch to connect your wired-Ethernet devices. Connect four PCs directly, or daisy-chain out to more hubs and switches to create as big a network as you need. Finally, the Router function ties it all together and lets your whole network share a high-speed cable or DSL Internet connection.
To protect your data and privacy, the Wireless-G Broadband Router can encrypt all wireless transmissions. The Router can serve as a DHCP Server, has NAT technology to protect against Internet intruders, supports VPN pass-through, and can be configured to filter internal users' access to the Internet. Configuration is a snap with the web browser-based configuration utility.
With the Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router at the center of your home or office network, you can share a high-speed Internet connection, files, printers, and multi-player games with the flexibility, speed, and security you need!
Write a review for the Linksys Wireless Router- Cable/DSL connection - For Cable Users here!
This is an excellent bit of kit and has functioned flawlessly for me.
Far superior to some of the other router I have had.
Im not sure why someone would think it doesnt have a RJ45 port for a patch cable to/from a modem. IT DOES.
The earlier review was a bit confused I guess!
Not the cheapest wireless router I could find, but I decided to sacrafice price for reliability and ease of use, and I'm glad that I did. Had it set-up working with my Virgin broadband within 10 minutes and had my PC and laptop connected with wires. Had my Wii and PSP connected wirelessly within another 10 minutes, all with WPA security.
Very very simple to set-up, no problems so far and good signal strength.
This is the Linux based version of the WRT54G wireless router. The linksys sourced firmware has had a number of years to settle and so is stable. Whereas the new versions of the WRT54G are now VxWorks based and have been reported to have had a few teething problems. This router may easily be reflashed with OpenWRT - http://www.openwrt.org if desired.
