Description : Jump-start your wireless network! This Wireless-G ADSL Gateway Kit for Notebooks provides you with a Wireless-G ADSL Gateway (the heart of your network), and a Wireless-G Notebook Adapter to get your PC connected, quick and easy.

The Gateway contains an ADSL modem to get you connected to the Internet and a built-in router to securely share that Internet connection with all the computers in the house, both wireless and wired. You can connect four computers directly to the Router by Ethernet cables, and daisy-chain out to more hubs and switches to create as big a network as you need.

Or, use the Gateway's built-in Wireless-G access point to connect your PC to the network without stringing any wires. That's where the Wireless-G Notebook Adapter comes in. Just plug it into your notebook through a PC Card slot. Wireless networking doesn't get any easier.

Of course, you can connect more computers to the Gateway and your high-speed Internet link - just provide a wired or wireless network adapter for each one. And once your computers are connected to the Gateway, they can communicate with each other too, sharing resources like printers and all kinds of files - music, digital pictures, and documents.

To protect your data and privacy, all wireless communications can be protected by industrial-strength 128-bit WPA encryption, while the powerful SPI firewall helps keep Internet intruders out of your computers. Configuring the Gateway is a snap with your web browser.

With the Wireless-G ADSL Gateway Kit for Notebooks, you're ready to start sharing printers, files, and your Internet connection, the easy way.

Hi there,

I download a lot and have heard that many different routers lock up (my existing one included) with too much traffic over P2P. Can you tell me if you have any of these issues, or indeed anyone else?

Cheers

I don't have this particular LinkSys router, but my wrt54g never drops off and has been very very reliable. As fast on my laptop as my PC anywhere in the home, upstairs or down.

The WRT and WAG ranges from Linksys are VERY different machines (WRT V5 aside)
Not to mention the WRT has 5dB antenna's and the WAGs mostly do not, this one doesn't anyways and requires you to buy 1 to increase its power and reach range.
Unfortunately the WRT is designed for cable modem setups (or attach to a adsl router which will work in bridge/dhcp type mode, im no expert) the WAG designed for ADSL usage.

The WRT v4 and earlier has a nice and powerful chipset whos firmware can be overwritten with 3rd party linux based software which can be very powerful

The WAG has a cheap chipset and low end CPU which struggles to cope with thousands of connections which the likes of listing gaming servers and/or torrenting would result in.

Read reviews, read peoples experiences before buying this if you are someone who torrents and/or games alot and will depend on this device.

Thanks for the extra info schizoboy I agree, it's best to read as many reviews as you can find too ;-) Brand wise I would recommend LinkSys.

I am now on my 2nd Linksys. The first stopped functioning after a year or so, with a common problem relating to getting too hot during constant use. The replacement is now exhibiting the same sort of problems as the 1st, also about a year on. I am wondering if this is a common problem.

Assuming you have broadband over your phone line, then this will be all you need to go wireless, at least with your laptop.

As supplied you will need to connect your pc via the cable supplied to the router.

Or you could get a wireless adaptor for your pc too, either via a card:

Or if you are not confident to fit one of those, a usb adaptor which also has the advantage of being able to be moved to a location to give you best reception:
