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
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.
To protect your data and privacy,
the Router can protect all wireless transmissions with 128-bit
encryption. The Router can serve as a DHCP Server, has a
powerful SPI firewall to protect your PCs against intruders and
