|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.|
Customer Reviews of Linksys WAP54G Wireless G Access Point
Excellent WAP, WORKING CHARM1/31/2009
I received this item very quickly from buy.com as usual. With quick installation guide, it took less than 10 min. to set up,and running right away , used for office network connection. Range is decent. I recommend this WAP for setting up wireless network.
WAP was just what was needed1/15/2009
My old 802.11b Linksys WAP finally died. This item was very easy to configure and was up and running in very short time. Great range and connection speed. WAPs are set 'em and forget 'em devices...remember to enable security! Would recommend this item easily.
Great as always!12/14/2008
This is the second Linksys for me and this one is better then the last model I bought. My internet provider gave me more trouble trying to get the IP address correct. Linksys support was great in helping me solve my connection problems.
Did What It Said It Would8/4/2008
Arrived when scheduled. Setup was fast & easy. Works fine. Speed is good (compares well with wired connection).
Great price, decent product1/27/2008
Had the Linksys WAP 11b with a no longer produced booster. The Wap 11b kept dying and needed to be reset often, so i decided to upgrade to the WAP 54G, unfortunetely i coud not use the booster with it. i noticed that although the speed increased, the range and connection strenght did not. The set up was very easy. was up and running within 5 minutes of receiving the unit, including security set up.
I found the unit difficult to connect and set-up. After a couple of days of fumbling through the software and linksys website I was finally able to establish connectivity on my network. There are many options for security which is extremely important and easy to use. Linksys needs to spend more time in their set up documentation from a non technical standpoint since most of their items assume people know more about computers than they actually do. Overall, peformance has been excellent and no issues with low or disconnecting signal strength. Well worth the money and time I spent setting up.
Linksys Wireless G9/26/2007
The setup was straight forward; especially when customizing the device. was done in about 15 minutes
Great... once you get it working9/26/2007
I set this up as a wireless repeater to improve the coverage of my wireless network. First attempt was with a Netgear Router. No success. I purchased a Linksys router and was eventually (after a lengthy Linksys Tech Support Chat Session) able to establish a connection. I was never able to get the simple one-touch configuration button to work for me. Turns out that the security level I set during configuration, WPA2, was not supported. When security was changed to WEP, I was able to establish a connection to the WAP54G. Coverage is great now and I am happy with the final result.
If you need to bridge two networks, look no furthe9/25/2007
I needed to bridge two buildings that were over 1300 feet apart. seamless ,easy setup, a couple of external antennas and I have full bandwith between buildings 24/7 without drop out or having to reboot ever .......
works well on my network6/26/2007
I have the WAP11 too. there all talking and staying online. i recommend using mac filter security.
Neither the options nor performance with this AP are stellar for the price, but it works well for what it does and I haven't had any issues with it, yet.
Access point defies easy access2/18/2007
A Linksys support technician installed the access point. So far it has increased the strength of the signal from low to excellent. Once installed all six of my Linksys products work very well.
Have a linksys router for Vonage and would have cost twice as much to get their wireless router. Plugged into router, followed simple instructions on CD, and had wireless internet running in 5-10 minutes. Couldn't be easier.
This was my first try with wireless, so I was a little frustrated when the installation CD that came with the Access Point was blank. I called customer service, and the fine young lady in India (I believe) talked me through the manual set-up. Didn't tell me to switch my CPU settings back to Auto Detect when I plugged into my wired hub, so it took a 2nd call. Very happy with the product, and even with the hassle, still easy to install.
Works for me3/27/2006
Stumbled a bit on setting up the WAP 128 bit encryption, but got it working. I suspect it may have to do with changes in Windows XP default settings... anyway once set up, it has been functioning flawlessly. 54 MPS in the basement, 1st floor, 2nd floor, and attic. I haven't taken the laptop out into the woods yet ... but who knows?
Wasn't a bad price at the time I bought it, and it works, so I don't have any complaints.
A very impressive WAP with great range8/4/2005
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.
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!
