Dual-Band Wireless A+B Broadband Router
 
WRT51AB  

The Dual-Band Wireless A+B Broadband Router is like four devices in one box! The Router function lets you securely share one high-speed Internet connection among your entire network, while the 4-port full duplex 10/100 Switch jump-starts your wired-Ethernet network. Connect four PCs directly, or daisy-chain out to more hubs and switches to create as big a network as you need.

The Dual-Band Wireless A+B Router also contains two Wireless Access Points, which let you connect with wireless-networked PCs using either the popular 2.4GHz, 802.11b standard at 11Mbps, or the new, almost five times faster, 5GHz, 802.11a standard. Since both standards are built in, you can protect your investment in existing 802.11b equipment today, and migrate to the 802.11a standard as your needs grow.

 
Features:      
  • Built-in 4-port Switch jump-starts your wired network, while the Router functionality shares your high-speed Internet connection with wired and wireless clients
  • Dual-band Access Point communicates simultaneously with the widely-adopted 802.11b and new high-speed 802.11a wireless networks
  • Protect your wireless investment while preparing your infrastructure for the future
  • Advanced Security: Wireless data encryption (WEP), 802.1X authentication and authorization support, VPN pass-through, Internet Access filtering


 

In addition to up to 152-bit encryption of wireless transmissions, the Dual-Band Wireless A+B Router supports the industrial-strength wireless security of 802.1x authentication and authorization. The Router also serves 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 Dual-Band Wireless A+B 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!
