Wireless-G is today's 54Mbps
wireless networking, 802.11G,standard that's almost five times
as fast as the widely deployed Wireless-B (802.11B) products
found in homes,
businesses, and public wireless
hotspots around the country, but since they share the same
2.4GHz radio band, Wireless-G devices can also interoperate with
1Mbps Wireless-B equipment.
Since both standards are built in,
you can protect your investment in existing 802.11b
infrastructure, and migrate to the new screaming fast Wireless-G
standard as your needs grow.
The Linksys Wireless-G Broadband
Router is really three devices in one box. First, there's the
Wireless Access Point, which lets you connect Wireless-G or
Wireless-B devices to the network. There's also a built-in
4-port full-duplex 10/100 Switch to connect your
wired-Ethernet devices. Connect four
PCs directly, or daisy-chain out to 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,
files, and other resources such as
printers and hard disk storage space.
To protect your data and privacy,
the Wireless-G Broadband Router can encode all wireless
transmissions using 128-bit WEP encryption, and also supports
industrial-strength Wi-Fi Protected Access™ (WPA) wireless
security. The Router protects your PC from most
known Internet attacks with a
powerful Stateful Packet Inspection firewall. It can also serve
as a DHCP Server, supports VPN pass-through, and can be
configured to filter internal users' access to the Internet. And
even with all this power, set up is a snap with the web
browser-based configuration utility.
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 the flexibility, speed, and security you need!
