Performance

I needed to bridge two buildings that were over 400 feet apart. Not only does the WAP54G bridge the distance, but in repeater mode, it gives my remote location both wired AND wireless access to the main network!

-D Bowdoin quote

I purchased this WAP for my home to replace a version 1 Netgear WG602 that lacked WPA encryption technology. This WAP has much greater range, faster negotiated connection time and very fast transfer of encrypted data. I work in the IT field and would recommend this WAP over several other more expensive Cisco units. It offers comparable performance and features at a fraction of the cost. I have since purchased a booster (see http://www.buy.com/retail/product.asp?sku=10381453&loc=101&hdwt=0&sp=1 ) and with an adapter hooked it up to my WAP54G and it tripled the wireless range.

Product Overview

The Linksys Wireless-G Access Point lets you connect Wireless-G (802.11g) or Wireless-B (802.11b) devices to your wired network so you can add PCs to the network with no cabling hassle. Create a "wireless bubble" in that hard-to-wire home or office space, and save the time, hassle, and expense of running cables. Plus, notebook PCs can travel around your home or office and stay connected wherever they go. Since both standards are built in, you can protect your investment in existing Wireless-B infrastructure, and migrate your network devices to the new screaming fast Wireless-G standard as your needs grow. You can also use the Wireless-G Access Point as a kind of "cable-less cable" to connect remote areas together. Maybe Shipping is all the way across the warehouse from Receiving. Or maybe you want to set up a home office in your detached garage. With one Wireless-G Access Point in the garage and another one in the house, you're connected at up to 54Mbps – with no cable to run. The new push button setup feature makes it easy to configure your wireless devices. Just push the button on the Access Point and on your other SecureEasySetup-enabled wireless device to automatically create an encryption-secured wireless connection. Wi-Fi Protected Access™ (WPA) protects your data and privacy with up to 128-bit industrial-strength encryption. You can use the MAC Address filter to decide exactly who has access to your wireless network. And for the ultimate in wireless protection, the Wireless-G Access Point comes with built-in access to the Linksys Wireless Guard service (free trial included), which gives small businesses the security of WPA-RADIUS, without the hassle of building an authentication server. Access Point configuration is a snap with the web browser-based configuration utility. The Linksys Wireless-G Access Point is the best way to add wireless capability to your existing home or small office network.
