Small Area Router

Loving Father, Amazon
17 April 2007
  • Summary: The router was purchased based on specifications given. I realised too late that houses where I'm from are constructed differently (we use block and steel for all walls both interior and exterior).

Did you know that...

N. Rojas "nefrojas", Amazon
2 June 2006
  • Summary: ...if you pull out the antenna connector the built in antenna is disengaged. This makes the range of the router ridiculously short, like some people describe in their reviews. I wonder if this is the cause for those 1 star reviews.

Works but could be better

Canh Tran, Amazon
29 December 2005
  • Summary: It was easy to set up and got it up and running. The signal is strong only near router. I brought my laptop to 1 floor down in my house and the signal dropped drammatically and mostly couldn't stay on with the connection. I didn't have the antenna installed.

Geat product... shame about the resets

J. D. Dixon "Dr Horrible", Amazon
14 July 2007
  • Summary: This is a great product, mine is fitted with an external antenna, giving in that extra boost and it works a treat without the antenna too, giving about a 7-9 meter range outdoors and 6 indoors. Unfortunately, both of the WRT54GC routers I have owned have had one single problem...

  • Excerpt: I have a cable modem and my eldest has been nagging me to setup a networked connection in their bedroom so they could surf & study, surf and play music more like but I can't resist a new gadget.

  • Excerpt: - Берите что нибудь посовременнее. уточняйте прям в магазе про потоки MultiCast
  • Pros: хороший марш для дома, достаточноя мощность сигнала для обычной квартиры,легок в эксплуатации
  • Cons: - посыпалась картинка при просмотре IPTV при подключении кабелем(настраивал миллион всяких маршей, тот же дир100 со своим страеньким процом после смены прошивки получал галочку в адвенсед-нетворк - мультикаст-стрим. и показывал картинку в большинстве случаев(9 из 10). с дир300 тоже самое, эта мод...

  • Excerpt: Ищу другую модель.
  • Pros: Компактный недорогой роутер с относительно стильным дизайном. Довольно много настроек, в т. ч. по безопасности - ограничение по MAC, шифрование и т. п.
  • Cons: 1. Через год работы стал глючить - WAN отваливается чуть ли не каждый день, помогает только ресет питания. 2. Физически невозможно отключить Wi-Fi - а облучать с утра до вечера себя и свою семью желания нет. 3. Мощность беспроводной связи оставляет желать лучшего - через стены пробивает плохо. 4....

Opción aceptable y recomendable si se lo consigue barato.

AMILSAN, MercadoLibre
8 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Si se lo consigue a un buen precio, menor a los ciento cincuenta pesos, es una muy buena opción para armar una pequeña red domestica o compartir acceso a internet y recursos en espacio limitados.
  • Pros: Facil configuración., Diseño atractivo., Compacto., Posibilidad de incorporar antena externa.
  • Cons: Aunque no lo probé la antena interna debe tener poco alcance., No trae una antena externa de fabrica., Segun internet cuenta con una falla de seguridad., La aislación luminica de los leds indicadores es mala siendo dificil de distinguir cuales estan activas y cuales no., Las opciones de firewall ...

Klein und schick, aber die großen können es besser

v0rt33x, Ciao
29 August 2007
  • Excerpt: Linksys, das steht für solide Hardware die ihren Preis hat, leider wie bei diesem Produkt nicht immer gerechtfertigt. Von der Optik und der Verarbeitung her ist der WRT54GC Top, er ist verdammt klein, kommt in einem silbernen Gehäuse, die Anschlüsse sind (wie eigentlich immer) auf der Rückseite...
  • Pros: klein und kompakt; optisch ansprechend
  • Cons: Wireless Netzwerk leistung zu gering
