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.
