I just received the WRT54GS today and so far it's fantastic. Setup was so easy for both my ethernet and wireless computers. I had a terrible experience with a Belkin router bought at a local retailer and returned it. What a refreshing change, no freeze ups on downloads or trouble with booting up. Great product.

Consult A Pro, Inc. is a Value Added Reseller, we use Linksys Wireless Routers all the time. They are far the best ! They are easy to set-up and use and the support (if needed) can't be beat. Don't shop by price alone! This company has now merged with the LARGEST networking company CISCO. Cisco is known for their routing equipment so I trust Linksys to follow in their path.

Product Overview

The Wireless-G Broadband Router with SpeedBooster is really three devices in one box. First, there's the Wireless Access Point, which lets you connect Wireless-G, Wireless-B, and other performance-enhanced SpeedBooster devices to the network. There's also a built-in 4-port full-duplex 10/100 Switch to connect your wired-Ethernet devices together. Finally, the Router function ties it all together and lets your whole network share a high-speed cable or DSL Internet connection.

The Wireless-G Broadband Router with SpeedBooster incorporates the next generation of Wireless-G (802.11g) networking. SpeedBooster technology is a compatible add-on to standard Wireless-G, which increases "real-world" wireless network performance by up to 35%. Unlike other speed-enhancing technologies, SpeedBooster is fully 802.11 compliant, and a "good neighbor" to other wireless devices and technologies, using a single 2.4GHz channel as specified by the official wireless standard. And, unlike other technologies, with SpeedBooster you'll see an overall speed improvement even when running a mixed network of SpeedBooster and regular Wireless-G devices.

The new push button setup feature makes it easy to configure your wireless devices. Just push the button on the router 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 and 802.1x authentication and authorization. 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.

The Router also enables the new Linksys Parental Control Service, which makes it easy for you to keep your family safe on the Internet. First, set individual profiles for time-of-day and day-of-week access restrictions. Then, choosing from 16 different web content categories, you control what each family member is allowed to see. E-mail and instant messaging filters let you decide who can send messages to, and receive messages from, your family. View on-line individualized activity reports anytime. A free trial of the Service is included with the Router.

With the Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router with SpeedBooster 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, security and simplicity!
