Linksys EtherFast Cable/DSL Router with 4-Port Switch BEFSR41 ... EtherFast Cable/DSL Router with 4-Port Switch is the perfect option to connect multiple PCs to a high-speed Broadband Internet connection or to an Ethernet back-bone. Allowing up to 253 users, the built-in NAT technology acts as a firewall protecting your internal network.

This cutting-edge combination of router and switch technology eliminates the need to buy an additional hub or switch and serves your network as a completely dedicated, full duplex backbone.

Not so much an opinion on the Linksys Cable/DSL Router, after all, it's a blue box with twinkling lights, but more what you can do with one! Many people are cutting over to a broadband Internet connection of some kind, either courtesy of their cable TV company, or, if the prevailing conditions are right, through their BT telephone line using a service called ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line). The 'asymmetric' bit relates to the fact that downloads speeds are higher than those of uploads. As you can imagine, symmetrical DSL lines, i.e. with the same speed both ways tend to be for business use, and much much dearer. If you have more ... Read the complete review

golferinfr's Full Review: Cisco Linksys EtherFast Cable/DSL Router with 4-Po... I was upgrading my office 2 weeks ago and was looking for the best way to be online at the same time with all my computers and on the same page. The simple math was positioning each computer and applying enough work area around each computer while not trying to bump heads if any of my help or friends were using any other computers. Well, I got them all settled in and found out I needed to get me a bigger router to accompany my cable modem. I went to Staples and found this Linksys 4 port Etherfast Cabe/DSL router. I looked at the box to make sure it would be able to handle my networking ... Read the complete review

This in my opinion is the best and easiest way to set up a home network and share a high speed cable or DSL connection. This is even a great solution for small to medium sized business as well. This router comes in 2 main versions, a single port version for using with just one computer, or combining with other hubs and switches, or a 4 port version which has a 4 port 10/100 switch built in. This thing is very simple to set up.....to get going, you need not enter more than 3 lines of information in its very simple web-based configuration utility. It can support up to 253 clients on the internal network, acting as a DHCP server assigning each ... Read the complete review

Since 2001, I had run BigPond Cable Internet and shared it into a computer network with 3-4 computers using Win98SE Internet Connection Sharing. It was terrible using ICS. I wouldn't be sure that, when I boot up my PC, ICS would work as it should or not. When it wouldn't work, it would dish out IP addresses, but wouldn't pass any traffic to the Internet. I often had to leave the computer up all the time and, if there was a power failure or a system crash while I was away, I would have to talk people through uninstalling and reinstalling ICS just to get it going. So I had to bite the bullet and have us buy a Linksys 4-port router which was going at a ... Read the complete review

The other opinions for the LinkSys Ethernet Cable/DSL router already give an accurate description of this zippy and easy to use piece of kit, so I won't dwell too much on that side of things! I'd been looking to share my broadband Telewest/Blueyonder connection with other computers in the house and had grown fed up with the Internet connection sharing software (just about all of them!) which had often proved tempermental and - of course - meant that the PC connected to the modem had to be 'always on'. After reading articles in PC magazines about other routers, and difficulties in setting them up with Telewest accounts (especially when ... Read the complete review
