You've got the network – now make it wireless with the Linksys WAP54G Access Point. It uses Wireless-G technology for broad coverage and faster data speeds than the older standards (when used with compatible wireless adapters), while still being fully backwards compatible — perfect for mixed-mode environments.

Adding devices to your new wireless network couldn't be easier – simply push the button on the AP, and on any SecureEasySetup-enabled device, and you are set! Configuration is a breeze, too, thanks to the browser-based configuration utility. Full wireless security is provided with WEP and WPA encryption algorithms. This lets you keep your data secure and prevents bandwidth theft that can slow your network down.

5 out of 5 eggsGood wireless AP

Pros: Decent range. I had 4 to 5 bars throughout the house after hookup. Added this to an existing Lynksis router (BEFSR41) for my Dad. Almost plug and play easy.

Since this has the older classic Lynksis look to it, it just parks right on top of the router and looks good. Not like the "new and improved" UFO look they switched to. I don't think you can stack the newer design.

Cons: Not that major of a con but the firmware is kinda cheesy. Not a lot of settings but then again it's just a wireless AP. If you think you might need more options, consider running Tomato or DD-WRT on it. I left the firmware alone because this was at my folks place and it needs to be easy for them to fiddle with if needs be.

Other Thoughts: Nothing really. Same great Newegg service and shipping as usual.

3 out of 5 eggsOk

Pros: Great AP, high build quality and relatively easy setup if your not trying to go above and beyond what instructions come in the box.

Cons: Had issues connecting to my router to use as a wireless bridge to continue my wired network on the other side of the house. After about 13 hours I finally configured the AP to connect to wrt54g. Only issue is I had to remove all security settings so they would communicate and issue IP's that both could use. After rearming WEP security and disabling the visibility of my network, 1 day later they would once again not communicate. I am sure there is something on my end that I am not doing right but for the distance of 20 feet I'll rather run a cable and hide it under the carpet then adventure configuring this AP/Router anymore.

Other Thoughts: I'm sure that if I could figure out the issues I had and get an idea of what I did wrong I would have no problem purchasing this AP once again.

5 out of 5 eggsLinksys Access Point

Pros: These are awesome. I now have 5 of them. They are only b/g, but that is fine. They work well. I have them for guest wireless access and guests tell me they work great. Doing manual configuration on these is easy. I think it is easier to manually config them then using the software.

Cons: Only run them in mix mode. I tried running them in "G-only", and had problems.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat WAP, bad repeater

Pros: This thing is rugged - can handle power surges and hot temperatures and keep on chugging. A reliable WAP for sure.

Cons: Not-so-clear help in the Web GUI. Questionable operation as a repeater. I tried everything I could to make this repeat the signal of a Linksys WRT54G - including disabling all wireless security. I could not make this work. I've read reports that even if you do get the repeater to work, it can't handle anything more than WEP security.

Other Thoughts: Didn't try the bridge option. You can possibly load dd-WRT on this too. That might have solved my problem.

2 out of 5 eggsA flaming heap of junk

Pros: Pretty easy to configure and get running. Decent range.

Cons: But the first one I bought started randomly going out to lunch after a year, forcing a power cycle to get it back. So, thinking that maybe it was a sign that it was on it's way out, I bought another one - big mistake, as the new one is doing the same thing almost immediately after hooking it up. Off to the internets I go to see if it's just me with this problem and behold - I'm just one of many! How wonderful!! But hey, it's only money...

Other Thoughts: Stick w/ something else.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy to Set UP

Pros: Easy to set up. Works fine with no hassles.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I just wanted to add a wireless component to my ethernet home network for those rare times when I want to surf on my laptop. Easy to set up. I just followed the directions on the CD on my Windows 7 64 bit computer and it all went fine. Took about 20 minutes. I ran through the setup routine 3 or 4 times as I decided what security settings seemed to make the most sense. Absolutely no problems. I get about half my house covered with good strength. BTW, the default password of "admin" seems to be correct with this version of the product.

2 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for

Pros: The price is clearly a plus. I mean, look, you can get one of these things new for about $80 or you can pick them up used for around $40. It does what it's supposed to do. It makes a good consumer based access point to turn your house into a hotspot, but that's about as far as it goes.

Cons: These things have a tendancy of locking up, dropping off the network, and they constantly have to be reset. Forget about using something like this in a commercial or office setting. It just has too many issues. I had one of these hooked up to an outdoor antenna and I had to reset it about 1 or 2 A DAY. People kept complaining about not being able to connect, or the signal was poor. So I would reset it, and then things were golden for a while, but then a few days (or sometimes hours) later it was falling out again. And to add to it, that SES button on the front of it created more headaches than anything else. I would these enter "ses mode" mysteriously on their own and then nobody could use it.

Other Thoughts: My other thoughts? Stay away from these unless you don't mind resetting them constantly or reconfiguring it numerous times. It you want something cheep and consumer based, this is for you. If you want something more stable and reliable, look elsewhere.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat AP

Pros: Using this access point in a small office environment with about 5 client computers most of the time. That, and the occasional iPod touch or netbook.

Have not had any issues with packet loss or overall network performance.

Cons: None to speak of!
