The Linksys Compact Wireless-G Broadband Router is really three devices in one small box. First, there's the Wireless Access Point, which lets you connect both screaming fast Wireless-G (802.11g at 54Mbps) and Wireless-B (802.11b at 11Mbps) devices to the network. There's also a built-in 4-port full-duplex 10/100 Switch to connect your wired-Ethernet devices together. Connect four PCs directly, or attach more hubs and switches to create as big a network as you need. Finally, the Router function ties it all together and lets your whole network share a high-speed cable or DSL Internet connection.

Once your computers are connected to the Router and the Internet, they can communicate with each other too, sharing a printer, digital music, picture and document files, and multiplayer or on-line games.

Cons: range could be better

Good for small spaces

Pros: This is a good cheap little router. I initially bought it for my college dorm room but now have it set up and after adding a Linksys antenna, it serves wireless goodness to my four bedroom two story home. I have Vista, XP, and OSX computers all connected without problems although it did take a lot of time tweaking to get it to work with all at the same time.

Cons: It's small and doesn't come with an external antenna, although it does have a connector for one, so its coverage is limited.

Overall Review: This is a good little router and is perfect for a dorm or small apartment. If you want a router you can use for the next 4 or 5 years this is probably not going to cut it; but if you're not ready to drop $250 for a good 802.11N router and have a small living space definitely consider this router.

Small router, small range

Pros: Tiny footprint.
Full functionality.

Cons: Limited range.

Overall Review: Really this isnt a complete product. The range isnt up to the same standard as even old Linksys B routers. They should have included an antenna out of the box to bring it up to standards. However this Linksys brand antenna is a $35 add-on. As it stands now unless you live in a small apartment, expect to get a 'low' signal.
So out of the box this feels like an incompete product, which is unfortunate because its a nice piece of hardware.
As a side note it works with Ps3 fine.

Great while it lasts

Pros: Connects easily, quick connections, and it small and unobtrusive.

Cons: Died on me about a year after owning. Just stopped functioning correctly, would lose signal all the time. I updated the firmware and I guess that killed it all together. Now I cannot use it even as a wired router.

There is also no Mac OSX Support, I guess they forgot about those people.

nice router

Pros: Small footprint. Definitely looks way sleeker than some other models. I don't use the wireless incredibly often but it has yet to drop a connection. WPA 2 security. Overall it has been very reliable.

Cons: You can't use any custom firmware with it because there is none because the firmware is not open source. The throughput is nothing special.

Overall Review: Great little router, but if performance is your goal you are probably better off with one of the full size wrt routers.

Great but no way to disable wireless

Pros: Great little router for wireless

Cons: NO way to disable the wireless! Once you hook it up your broadcasting and no way to disable!

Overall Review: Linksys makes great products. I would buy nothing else for home networking. I have tried other products in the past and they are the most user friendly ones on the market. I just wish this was no the only Linksys router made without the ability to disable wireless. I will be selling this one shortly since I no longer need the wireless capabilities and I want one that allows me to turn it off. I WILL be buying another Linksys though!

Good Deal

Pros: Wireless works good even through metal walls with internal antenna. Getting good coverage with it in my home. Also provides good connection when wired. I have one port connected to a 16 port switch for the last 9 months and no drips, runs, or errors so far.

Cons: None that I have found so far.

Overall Review: I would recommend for most applications.

Nice Tiny Router with Tiny Range

Pros: I like that it's so compact and it looks pretty snazzy on my computer desk. It has a little foot that twists out that helps it to stand. The antenna conveniently tucks away as well. It also has a nice networking user interface that even a beginner can understand.

Cons: The only con that I have noticed is the small range that it has. I'm in a small apartment for now and it won't even reach two rooms over. And if it does, it significantly drops my connection speed and frequently drops me completely.

Overall Review: Also, it sounds strange, but it does not work at all when there is a microwave running. It MAY be my Intel 3945abg wireless card, but I'm doubtful.
