Introduction

Linksys appears to be readying a new wireless router that integrates a UPnP media server. This is a first for Linksys, which has previously stuck to the media adapter end of things with its WMA11B wireless media adapter for music and still images [reviewed here] and WMCE54AG Dual-Band Wireless A/G Media Center Extender.

The WRTSL54GS Wireless-G Media Storage Link Router with SpeedBooster (Figures 1 and 2) is packaged in the latest iteration of Linksys' enclosure design.

The front panel (Figure 3) shows that it will support the SecureEasySetup feature [more info here] for setting up a WPA-secured wireless LAN with the push of a button that sports the SecureEasySetup logo instead of the Cisco logo used on the latest version of its venerable sibling, the WRT54G. The specs for the unit actually say it supports WPA2, but SecureEasySetup can't handle auto-setup of WPA2 yet.

The rear panel view (Figure 4) shows four 10/100 Ethernet ports, single 10/100 WAN port and one USB 2.0 port for connection of USB flash or hard drives that contain the content to be served.
