Wireless Networks are now feasible in your own home. For a reasonable cost, you can interconnect your home computers and your laptop to the Internet, all in different rooms that you haven't wired for networking. The Linksys WRT54G Wireless Router can be the centerpiece of your wireless network, interconnecting your Cable or DSL modem to computers attached both by Ethernet and through wireless connection. The Linksys WAP54G Wireless Access Point is similar but does not include the router capability to allow access through the modem to the Internet. It can be used if you already have a router or might be used to extend the range of your wireless coverage through a wired Ethernet connection.
You attach your Windows computers through a The Linksys WPC54G Wireless PC Card or a The Linksys WPC54G Wireless PCI Adaptor. The first is a CardBus device, designed for Laptops and Desktops that support CardBus cards, and the latter is a PCI adaptor, suitable for desktops that support PCI devices. All these products use the latest standards to provide higher speed interconnection, called IEEE 802.3G. The router and access point also interact with IEEE 802.3B adaptors.
Wireless Networks are no longer a dream of the future. Your computers can be interconnected and attached to a single Internet connection with ease.
