I purchased this router to use with my lap top and Wii. My current DSL modem has wireless built in but is always dropping the signal(additionally I am switching to a Broadband provider that does not provide wireless solutions). I opened the box and immediatly plugged the router into the power outlet and into my current DSL modem(ignoring the "USE CD FIRST" message plasterd all over the box and router). It started broadcasting a signal right away that my lap top piced up, I accessed the routers software using it's I.P. address(found on one of the quick guids in the box) and set up the security and BAM! done. Over the last week I've had no problems at all, the connection issues I was having with my modem's built in wireless are solved, I can connect all through out my home and the router looks very good grouped up with the rest of my electronics in my entertainment center.

This router is damn good.. Installed it with Windows VISTA laptop and it is very quick install without too much effort. I have been using this product for more than two months and didn't lost the connection/signal so far and wireless range/strength is good..

Product Overview

The Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router is really three devices in one 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 resources and files. All your computers can print on a shared printer connected anywhere in the house. And your computers can share all kinds of files -- music, digital pictures, and documents. Keep all your digital music on one computer, and listen to it anywhere in the house. Organize all of your family's digital pictures in one place, to simplify finding the ones you want, and easing backup to CD-R. Utilize extra free space on one computer when another's hard drive starts to fill up.

The new Wi-Fi Protected Setup feature makes it easy to configure your wireless devices. Just push the button on the router and on your other Wi-Fi Protected Setup-enabled wireless device to automatically create a WPA2 connection that protects your data and privacy with up to 256-bit industrial-strength 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, supports VPN pass-through, and can be configured to filter internal users' access to the Internet. Advanced configuration is a snap with the web browser-based interface.

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 flexibility, speed, security and simplicity!
