      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Not Reccomended

      I really dislike this router, Appart from it cutting out alot after a couple of months of use, it doesnt have much in the way of editing the security settings withing the router configuration. It says "with range booster" but im pretty sure it had trouble getting round my house, from time to time I would try and connect and it would connect to the computer but come up with "limited connectivity" but after resetting the router it would give me internet access again, thats a real pain in the pina coladas

      i now have the NETGEAR Wireless N150 for cabel modems and I love it, the configuration and saftey settings are alot easier to configure and it has alot more information about the settings with help on each topic.

      Furthermore, I have many laptops and gamestations such as the ps3 and Xbox's in the house and it was verry difficult to get the port forwarding to work.....it might just have been the one i bought was a duff off the line, but i really really hate this router...not a good buy.

    The Wireless-G Broadband Router with RangeBooster is really three devices in one box. First, there's the Wireless Access Point, which lets you connect Wireless-G, Wireless-B, and other RangeBooster devices to the network. There's also a built-in 4-port full-duplex 10/100 Switch to connect your wired-Ethernet devices together. Finally, the Router function ties it all together and lets your whole network share resources and a high-speed cable or DSL Internet connection.

    RangeBooster technology is a compatible add-on to standard Wireless-G, which increases your wireless network's range up to two times, and its throughput by up to 35%. Unlike ordinary wireless technologies that are confused by signal reflections, RangeBooster uses two smart receivers at each end to detect and decode reflected signals at distances where standard technologies give up. You'll find that "dead spots" in the wireless coverage area are reduced, too.

    Unlike other range-enhancing technologies, RangeBooster is fully 802.11 compliant, and a "good neighbor" to other wireless devices and technologies, using a single 2.4GHz channel as specified by the official wireless standard. And with RangeBooster you'll see a range improvement even when running a mixed network of RangeBooster and regular Wireless-G devices.

    Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) protects your data and privacy with up to 128-bit industrial-strength encryption. The Router can serve as a DHCP Server, has a powerful SPI firewall to protect your PCs against intruders and most known Internet attacks, and supports VPN pass-through. Configuration is a snap with the web browser-based configuration utility.

    With the Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router with RangeBooster at the center of your home or office network, you can share a high-speed Internet connection, files, printers, and multi-player games at twice the distance!
