Introduction

Linksys Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge with 5-port Switch

Linksys Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge with 5-port Switch
Summary 802.11g bridge with 5 port 10/100 switch supporting VLAN and QoS features, including bandwidth limiting
Update None
Pros • Low-cost bandwidth management and VLAN features
• Works with APs & routers without WDS
• Supports WPA
Cons • QoS can't be applied on an application level
• Poor wireless distance performance

After a series of uninspired products, Linksys seems to be getting its groove back again. First the NSLU2 [reviewed here], which is re-defining the SOHO NAS market and now the WET54GS5. Given the way its product description on its website is written, I'm not sure that Linksys realizes the value of the multi-talented little box that it has produced. But by the time you're done with this review, I hope that you will!
