Product information: by Cisco WRT54GL 54Mbps Open Source Wireless G Cable RouterThe Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router is really three devices in one box. First, there's the Wireless Access Point, which lets you connect both screaming fast Wireless-G (54Mbps) and Wireless-B (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.
The WRT54GL Wireless Router’s open source code enables router customisation to create firmware for specialised applications or increased throughput. Linux developers and technical enthusiasts can tweak the source code to build in support for applications, either to add extra functionality previously unavailable or prioritise traffic to improve throughput to a given application.
