Fabulous Door Prizes!

Linksys WRT54G
Wireless-G Broadband Router
($99.99 retail value)

The Linksys 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 PC's directly, or daisy-chain out to more hubs and switches to create as big a network as you need. Finally, the Router function ties it all together and lets your whole network share a high-speed cable or DSL Internet connection, files, and other resources such as printers and hard disk storage space.

Main features:

  • All-in-one Internet-sharing Router, 4-port Switch, and Wireless-G (802.11g) Access Point
  • Shares a single Internet connection and other resources with Ethernet wired and Wireless-G clients
  • Wireless data rates up to 54Mbps -- 5 times as fast as Wireless-B (802.11b), but also interoperable with Wireless-B devices (at 11Mbps)
  • Advanced security: Wi-Fi Protected Access™ (WPA), wireless MAC address filtering, powerful SPI firewall
