5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific kit, Slim, fast, very configureable, 29 Nov. 2006
This review is from: Linksys by Cisco WAG54GS Wireless-G ADSL Modem Router with SpeedBooster (Electronics)
As with any of the new generation WiFi "All in One" devices it has lots of features, ADSL+2 modem, SPI firewall, 100mbps 4 port hub, router, DHCP server, VPN pass through, DMZ, WiFi 802.11b&g - WAP, 125mbps speed boost etc, probably too many for the average Joe. The basic setup is simple via web browser using the "common" GPL shared software code (GPL code is used on many Freeview boxes) so it may need the odd bounce here and there if your mains is prone to surges or spikes . The latest firmware (Hard coded software) is revision V1.00.09C which resolves a lot of the issues in the reviews here. Mine was supplied with V1.00.06 which I flashed immediately. I have had no issues since swapping this for my Belkin 125g which never lived up to the hype. The Linksys has one less antennae than the Belkin yet the coverage is superior and my ISP speed (BT) has increased from 4888Mbps to 5448mbps. I have combined this with an existing Linksys WAP54G wireless access point as a bridged network which was incompatible with the Belkin although the Linksys manual says it is only possible with a WRT54G it is working faultlessly from anywhere in the house as long as I broadcast the SSID and state its MAC address. It is also compatible with my Linksys PAP2 VoiP phone adapter which converts a normal BT landline handset to Voip rather buying the over priced Skype style phones or a BT hub package. Pros - Excellent manual and stat up CD. It has an On & OFF switch which is rare these days. Can be used as a Wireless Bridge or Repeater non documented feature!. Cons - I don't like the pointless Wifi "connect" button which will reset your WifI security. If you fix it to the wall the Cable entry is on the side rather than underneath, thereis no vertical desk mount unlike the PAP2

How can this be used as a wireless bridge/repeater?
