The Pitch

Gigabyte 802.11g Wireless Access Point

Gigabyte 802.11g Wireless Access Point
Summary Atheros-based 11g access point. Supports WPA, Super-G and can accept optional second radio card.
Update None
Pros • Can be upgraded to dual-radio
• Supports WPA (TKIP & AES)
Cons • Admin requires Windows application
• Admin application can be confusing

GIGABYTE Technology has certainly made their mark in the computing world as a supplier of motherboards, PCs and other PC-related products and now want to establish their name as a Networking brand. I took a look at their GN-A17GU 802.11g Access Point to gauge their progress and think they still have some work ahead of them.
