Since both standards are built in, you can protect your investment in existing 802.11b infrastructure, and migrate to the 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!

If you're looking to set up a very basic home network so that you can access the internet from anywhere in your home then this may just be the router for you! I purchased this around a year ago and have not looked back. The set up itself was really easy, compared to that of most routers anyway! The step by step software is actually really helpful, unlike most step by step software which can be pretty useless. I was guided through absolutely everything and told where to look for certian information on the router which I needed to enter during the setting up of the wireless network. Almost everything I needed to complete the set up came inclusive, ... Read the complete review

This is a great router i have had this for 4 years now and its still doing exactly what it is supposed to.This is for customers who have a cable connection (virgin media not the adsl lines like sky,B.T,Tiscali,orange etc) and want to share the internet across the household. I had this set up within 20 minutes and had it fully secured thanks to the easy to read instructions.It has the ability to block out people through W.E.P and WPA technology meaning that unless they have your passcode they are not going to get onto the system although WPA is more secure you can also filter it to block different MAC addressess(each network device has its own MAC address) which are not .

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This a great router. It is the only one I have ever owned and have had it for over two years. it is small so it does not take up a lot of space. it was affordable - $29 and I bought it at Wal-mart. The design is about as cool as you can get for a wireless router, which is not very attractive. I have never lost my signal, and I keep this thing on twenty four hours a day- seven days a week. The only downside is that when I was first hooking it up it was kinda difficult. Apparently my computer's IP did not match the routers. So i called their customer service- and they are ...

The Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Broadband Router is a great little device which offers the security of a more complex expensive router. The interface is so easy to manage, even if you are a novice you will soon be able to setup firewall rules, configured the wireless connection. With the wireless setup you can add rules to only allow machines with the MAC addresses you specify, this adds another level of security. Obviously as you would expect it acts as a hardware firewall, you can configure protocol access and redirect these using NAT. It is easy to backup your config and restore it back if you need. In all there time I had this router it has been very stable, I ... Read the complete review
