Summary: Bottom Line: The "Linksys Wireless-G WAP54G" represents the best of both worlds; it can meet your need for current 802.11b standards, but still has the flexibility to expand beyond to 54Mbps. Wireless-G is the next wave in wireless networking technology.
Summary: This is great if you need removable antennas, but it is great with its other features as well. Its is an older model and may not have all the latest security features, but does have great customer support.
Summary: Got this access point yesterday. Very easy to use, plug it in, boot up the laptop and instantly had access. The install CD used to lock it down from being a public unsecured wireless network was step by step and didn't require hardly any user input for settings other than picking a password.

Summary: The paperwork/instructions did not match the hardware in the box. First customer service rep was clueless. Second and third were excellent. I am technology challenged and not mechanically inclined but had no problem with customer service help.
Summary: The product works perfectly, but Linksys' "We don't do Macintosh"attitude is for the birds. The setup CD is for Windows only, and there was no package insert nor a website describing the setup procedure. I had to email Support who gave me a) the magic key, e.g.
Works Great, but more detailed instructions needed

Summary: Good Product, More detailed instructions needed. This was my first WAP setup, needless to say I was a little disappointed in the instructions. It only showed how to use it right out of the box and nothing on how to use secure the network using MAC address and or WEP.
Summary: I have now purchased 3 of the WAP54G's (2 for the office and 1 for home). The second one I purchased for the office and the one for home I had set up in less than 5 minutes. The signal is strong as at home I have the access point in the basement and broadcast it to my daughter's room upstairs.
Summary: I used to have A netgear wireless router, burnt up in a week. Then I got broadband phone service but they didnt have a wireless router. So I got this one, hooked it right in, it detected instantly and I have wireless internet right on the spot.
Summary: I have a Linksys BEFSR41 wired router, so when I started bringing my wireless work laptop home, I decided that I needed to get a wireless access point rather than another (wired/wireless)router. Basic setup was simple; I was up and running in ten minutes with the very basic documentation.
Summary: Setup was easy. I did not install the included setup software, but rather accessed the WAP54G console via the [...] address using IE6. The console was easy to understand. All security features are set to "off" out of the box.
