Dual-Band Wireless A+G Broadband Router
 
WRT55AG  


An Internet-Sharing Router and Switch, with Universal Wireless Access (A, B, and G)

The Dual-Band Wireless A+G 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+G Broadband Router also contains two Wireless Access Points, supporting all three wireless networking specifications. The first Access Point uses the 2.4GHz radio band, supporting both the popular and inexpensive Wireless-B (802.11b) standard at 11Mbps, and the new, almost five times faster, Wireless-G (draft 802.11g) at 54Mbps. The second Access Point radio operates in the 5GHz band, and supports Wireless-A (802.11a) networking, also at 54Mbps. Since the two radios operate in different bands, they can work simultaneously, blanketing your wireless zone with bandwidth.

 
Features:      
  • Dual-band, tri-standard Access Point communicates with Wireless-A (802.11a), Wireless-B (802.11b), and Wireless-G (draft 802.11g) wireless networks
  • Protect your wireless investment while preparing your infrastructure for the future
  • Built-in 4-port Switch jump-starts your wired network, while the Router functionality securely shares your high-speed Internet connection with wired and wireless computers

To protect your data and privacy, the Dual-Band Wireless A+G Broadband Router can encrypt all wireless transmissions. The MAC Address filter lets you decide exactly who has access to your wireless network. The Router also serves as a DHCP Server, has NAT technology to protect against Internet intruders, DMZ capability, 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+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!
