Linksys Compact Wireless-G Broadband Router WRT54GC ... The Linksys Compact Wireless-G Broadband Router is really three devices in one small box. First, there's the Wireless Access Point, which lets you connect both screaming fast Wireless-G (802.11g at 54Mbps) and Wireless-B (802.11b at 11Mbps) devices to the network. There's also a built-in 4-port full-duplex 10/100 Switch to connect your wired-Ethernet devices together. Connect four PCs directly, or attach 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.
Once your computers are connected to the Router and the Internet, they can communicate with each other too, sharing a printer, digital music, picture and document files, and multi-player or on-line games.
To protect your data and privacy, the Wireless-G Broadband Router can encode all wireless transmissions with WEP or industrial-strength WPA Personal 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. And the tiny form factor fits any home or desktop.
With the Linksys Compact 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!

I have a cable modem and my eldest has been nagging me to setup a networked connection in their bedroom so they could surf & study, surf and play music more like but I can't resist a new gadget. I could have used the "Internet Connection Sharing" feature in Windows but this would have meant getting a second ethernet adapter on my main machine in the study and leaving it switched on all the time. Instead I decided to get a dedicated Wireless gateway router. These boxes attach to a cable or DSL modem and the rest of the house network sits behind it, connected directly to the small internal hub (usually 4 ports) and via Wireless LAN. The gateway ...

It's quite difficult to write an opinion on something as technical as a PC network router, as on one hand, you'll have some readers who don't yet know what a router is (stick around) and on the other hand, there'll be the reader who just wants to know what I think of this bit of kit before buying one themselves. So here is a quick and dirty description of what a router can do for you. Those in the know might like to skip about three paragraphs. WHAT USE IS A ROUTER AND TO WHOM? Like most things relating to computing, a router is just a box full of electronics, and if you're lucky, some pretty flashing lights to show it's working. As with modems, ... Read the complete review

WHAT DO YOU GET? You'll get 200Mhz processing power (integrated broadcom solution) which should be of a great use since this box can be programmed to do almost anything if you are familiar with linux and crosstool compiler. 4MB Flash memory can be used for a new upgrades/option since this box gets upgraded almost all the time with new security and functionality. LINUX BOX This device is actually a small linux box. You can telnet to it and process linux commands. Since it's GPL'ed you can also download a full source and compile it for yourself. You wil need a mips cross-compiler for linux. WHAT ABOUT VERSIONS? As far as i know there's ... Read the complete review

I upgraded the existing Linksys BEF-SR41 wired router to a Linksys WRT-54G to provide a "one-box" solution for a wireless Internet access for a laptop. I was after a highly capable router that can be a broadband login agent for most service login types, as well as providing wireless networking to current standards. This unit supported both goals and worked to expected standards for wireless routers. As well, I noticed that there was an interest by Linksys and others to keep the device to current expectations. This meant that the router hand newer firmware with newer functionality like quality-of-service setup, which I then upgraded it. It still works ... Read the complete review
