Who says high quality has to be expensive? MSI delivers a cost effective 802.11b/g router that has features usually reserved for much higher priced units. Of course all the standard features are included such as four LAN and one WAN port with auto-MDI/MDIX.

In today's world security is of paramount importance and MSI has it taken care of. WEP, WPA and WPA2 encryption keep your data secure and prevent others from stealing your bandwidth and slowing your connection. Your network is protected from attacks through your Internet connection by the NAT and SPI firewalls. DoS detection is included as an extra layer of security.

Signal strength and connection stability are improved with 5dBi high gain antennas. This increases your range by up to 60% over standard 2dBi antennas.

  • newegg MSI Turbo G Mode Compared to the 802.11g standard (54Mbps), the RG60G boosts data rates by up to 40% and requires the Turbo G-enabled WLAN adapter to be installed on the client end.
  • newegg High-gain Antenna The RG60G features the 5dBi high-gain antenna to increase the operating range by up to 60% over the standard 2dBi antenna.
  • newegg Backward Compatible with 802.11b/g The RG60G is backward compatible with standard IEEE 802.11b and 802.11g adapters (client).

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent router

Pros: This is by far the best router I have used for B/G networks. I have been working with all the major brands for several years as an A+/N+ technician. This produces the best signal quality, least heat, and best speeds I have seen on a B/G router.

Cons: Speeds could be slightly increased, but for customers seeking high data throughput I would recommend wireless-N standard anyways. Also, it seems to me most beginners would have an issue with the setup. It is negligible to any seasoned technician, but if you're a beginner READ THE MANUAL CAREFULLY.

Other Thoughts: Extremely sleek and aesthetically pleasing. After setting this up in a few customer's homes I set one up in mine. I have not had to set a specific IP address on each computer as most other routers require to keep a constant connection. No issues with Ubuntu 8.04, Mac OSX 10.5, Vista x64 Ultimate, or Xandros (EEE PC).

2 out of 5 eggsRMA

Pros: Features

Cons: Didn't hold a wireless connection for more than a couple of minutes. Range was also much less than acceptable for this class of device.

Other Thoughts: Maybe I didn't have luck with this particular purchase. RMA'd it and bought another one at newegg.

4 out of 5 eggsGood bang for the buck

Pros: Looks great; lots and lots of configuration options; basic configuration was incredibly easy.

Cons: Power plug needs to be jammed in there really well and comes out a bit easily - as long as the router is in an area where the cord isn't likely to get tugged at all, this is a non-issue.

Bought it in part for the 5 dBi antenna, since we were replacing a 2 dBi router with signal strength issues. Signal IS much stronger, but wireless cards give 70-80% bars in the next room, and 40-60% three walls and twenty-five feet away. Still works great, just was expecting stronger signals.

Other Thoughts: This house has all sorts of problems with signals - aforementioned 2 dBi router, cell service (with different providers), cordless phone. So the signal strength is admirable, considering, and definitely stronger than the 2 dBi router. Maybe it's the thick coating of lead paint on all the walls...

5 out of 5 eggsThis router works great

Pros: Good signal strength, Compatible with my hardware

Cons: Occasional resetting required, Configuration software

Other Thoughts: I've been using this router for ~6 months now. It was somewhat difficult to configure as the software is not a intuitive as it could be. Once set up, all of my hardware connected to it flawlessly. I have the router positioned near the back of my home on the lowest level (I have a quad level home). I get 70% or better strength throughout my home (all levels). I highly recommend having at least one wired connection to a computer. It makes configuration and resetting much easier.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: NA

Cons: Thought the 5dbi antenna would do the job. This would not go 15 through 1 wall.

Other Thoughts: go with an N-router.. any N-router. got the low-end dlink for $45.. works great

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with WII and DSL

Pros: Works well. I was impressed with the easy setup web-based software. Most importantly It works with my AT&T DSL modem and the Nintendo Wii

Cons: The quick guide was very thick - only 10 pages of information, but in several languages. I wondered why they bother to print, when the whole thing plus the manual is in PDF on the included CD.

Other Thoughts: I did have a bit of problem figuring out the settings for DSL, but that is more of a AT&T issue than from this router.

4 out of 5 eggsConnection to SBC 2Wire 1701HG Gateway

Pros: Great price, connects beautifully using the Vista Network Wizard.
I want to revise the review I made previously. I said I couldn't get it to connect to my 2Wire 1701HG Gateway--that was using the MSI utility. I worked for hours trying different settings and going back and forth--all to no avail. I exchanged a card thinking it was defective.

Cons: What's defective is the MSI configuration utility.
Sometimes doesn't seem to come out of sleep mode well, but I tried another wireless card that had the same problem--seems to be common--may be fixed with Vista SP1.
The card doesn't seem to be detected by an XP image in VirtualPC--but it could be operator error.

Other Thoughts: In Vista, add the Network using the wizard. It detected my SSID, prompted for the key, and made the connection. Don't waste your time trying to configure with the MSI utility.
