U_S_Robotics 802.11g Wireless Turbo Multi-Function Access Point

U.S. Robotics 802.11g Wireless Turbo Multi-Function Access Point (USR5450)
Summary 802.11g AP based on Texas Instruments' TNETW1130 Multimode wireless chipset. Supports wireless bridging, repeating and client modes. Also supports TI-based 'enhanced' 802.11b clients at speed.
Update None
Pros • Superior performance vs. range
• No WEP enabled performance degradation
• 802.11g spec compliant
• Supports multi-point wireless bridging and repeating
• Upgradeable antennas
Cons • 100Mbps it's not
• Does not support WPA
• Needs a real user manual

U.S. Robotics (USR) is the first company to field a WLAN product line based on Texas Instruments' TNETW1130 Multimode wireless chipset. There's a lot to like about the 5450, but if you're expecting the 100Mbps performance that's plastered all over USR's product packaging, literature and website, you'll be very disappointed...
