Introduction

Belkin 802.11g Wireless Network Access Point

Belkin 802.11g Wireless Network Access Point (F5D7130)
Summary Broadcom-based 802.11g wireless Access Point. 11g and WPA compliant. Also supports WDS-based bridging and repeating.
Update None
Pros • No WEP enabled performance degradation
• 802.11g spec compliant
• Supports WPA with optional AES encryption
• Supports multi-point wireless bridging
Cons • No monitoring or logging features
• 15% throughput reduction in WPA-TKIP mode
• Antennas are not upgradeable

Belkin was one of the first companies to have 802.11g wireless products that were both 802.11g spec-compliant and supported Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) enhanced security. I found their F5D7130 802.11g Wireless Network Access Point to be a good entry into the hot and heavy 11g market, but not without its faults.
