I did what most people warned not to do: buy an access point and PC Card from different manufacturers. All this WiFi stuff is suppose to be compatible, right? Luckily for me, this router works fine with the Orinoco Gold PC card I purchased. I did have to reboot the router sometimes to get the laptop to associate, but that problem went away after I upgraded to the latest firmware on the router. Configuration was a breeze with the clear and friendly browser interface. Surprisingly, this router doesn't provide access control based on MAC address, like Netgear routers. In their defense, MAC based access control is very weak, since MAC address can be spoofed. I love the fact that I can disable management access from the WAN port, which prevents hackers from trying to reconfigure the router. This router is loaded with features and is a great buy.

This is the best 802.11b access point/router/switch/firewall on the market for the price. It is one of the few out there with a build in firewall. I have had the SMC for about eight months and have had no problems with it. The range is not amazing, but it works for what I need. I figure that it has a range of about 100ft through the walls of my home. The access point is in a wire closet on the opposite side of the house (5000 sq ft.) from a laptop, and it works fine. This is the only product for broadband sharing I tell any of clients to get. Mainly because of the firewall and how it works with both PC and MAC. Whoohoo to SMC. I just bought another SMC router today for my office, my fourth. Jonthan TV Producer/Network Admin
