Product Description

Linksys WRT54GL - Wireless G Linux Open Source Router

The Linksys WRT54GL 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 within the Linksys WRT54GL ties it all together and lets your whole network share a high-speed broadband connection.

To protect your data and privacy, the Linksys WRT54GL Wireless-G Broadband Router can encrypt all wireless transmissions. The Linksys WRT54GL Wireless-G Broadband Router can serve as a DHCP Server, has NAT technology to protect against Internet intruders, supports VPN pass-through, and can be configured to filter internal users' access to the Internet. Configuration is a snap with the web browser-based configuration utility. With the Linksys WRT54GL 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!
