Introduction

NETGEAR 54Mbps Wireless Access Point

NETGEAR 54Mbps Wireless Access Point
Summary 802.11g Access Point with WDS bridging/repeating. Original version does not support WPA. Current ''v2' model does.
Update 5/11/2004 - Comes in two versions. WG602V2 does support WPA. WG602 (original version) does not support WPA.
Pros • Removable antenna
• Superior handling of mixed b/draft-11g networks
Cons • 10% WEP-enabled throughput degradation

NETGEAR's WG602 54Mbps Wireless Access Point is its first draft-802.11g Access Point, and the first draft-11g product I've reviewed that's based on Intersil's PRISM GT chipset. I found it to have significant differences from the Broadcom-based Buffalo Technology and Linksys products that I've previously looked at - some good, some not so good.
