ZyXEL ZyAIR G-2000 802.11g Wireless 4-port Router

The ZyAIR G-2000 is ZyXEL Communications' latest IEEE 802.11G (and 802.11B) broadband wireless sharing router and gateway. The ZyAIR G-2000 is unusual in that it has a number of interesting features and a great deal of configuration flexibility that help it to stand out from the increasingly crowded field of consumer-grade wireless routers.

As an Internet gateway, the ZyAIR can share an Internet connection (such as a cable or xDSL connection) with multiple computers, allowing a home or business network to connect simultaneously using wired and wireless networking. The ZyAIR also provides secured wireless connectivity to your wired network with WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access), which improves on WEP, virtually eliminating the security concerns early wireless had with hack-prone WEP connections.

The ZyAIR also employs MAC address filtering, which adds an additional layer of security by restricting who can connect to the wireless router to machines that have had their network card's hardware address previously registered with the wireless router.

Finally the ZyAIR G-2000 supports a number of other authentication and connection schemes that make it a very flexible router / gateway for business or home networks. With a rich feature-set and a user's guide that runs over 400 pages, ZyXEL has not skimped on the G-2000.
