Linksys WRT54G2

The Linksys WRT54G2 is a wireless-G broadband router with IEEE 802.3/IEEE 802.3u/IEEE 802.11g/b network protocol, has 10/100 RJ45 port for internet and LAN connectivity, 2 internal antennas, WLAN/LAN, internet, WiFi Protected Setup (WPS), UPnP support, SPI-firewall, WiFi Protected AccessTM 2, and WEP. It measures 203 x 35 x 160 mm and weighs 160 g. Minimum system requirements are Internet Explorer 6.0 or Firefox 1.0, a CD-ROM drive, and Windows XP / Vista operating system.

Features

The WRT54G2 Internet-sharing Router features 4-port Switch, and Wireless-G (802.11g) Access Point. It shares a single Internet connection and other resources with Ethernet wired and Wireless-G/-B devices. The router connects computers in a network with the Internet, enabling communication, sharing resources and files, as well as printing on a shared printer. The Wi-Fi Protected Setup allows users to configure wireless devices with a push the button on the router. Other Wi-Fi Protected Setup-enabled wireless device then automatically creates WPA2 connection that protects data and privacy with up to 256-bit industrial-strength encryption. The Router serves as a DHCP Server, has SPI firewall to protect PCs against intruders and Internet attacks, supports VPN pass-through, and can be configured to filter internal users' access to the Internet.

Review Summary

Linksys has launched a new wireless-G broadband router aimed at consumers, the WRT54G2, the successor to the Cisco WRT54G.

Featuring a new “sleek” design that the comapny hopes will mean folk will want to “proudly display” alongside other consumer tech, the router has an internal antenna.

The WRT54G2 ships with the Linksys EasyLink Advisor application, a simple-to-use software package designed to take away the technical hassle of setting up a wireless network.

Security can be configured with one button on the WRT54G2 thanks to the WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) feature that sees users push the WPS button on the router and on another WPS-enabled wireless device to create an encrypted wireless connection between them.
