Linksys wants to get in on some of the early show announcement action as well, by launching not one but two WiFi products before we all hit the CES show floor on Monday morning. The first is its WPSM54G 802.11g WiFi print server (pictured), which supports scanning, faxing and copying on various multifunction products from companies that include Canon, Dell, Epson, HP and Lexmark. Linksys isn't messing around with this one, and will sell you a print server right now direct from its website for $120. The second of the product pair is the WRT330N Wireless-N Gigabit Gaming Router, a draft-N device that's loaded up with four gigabit Ethernet ports and a single gigabit WAN port. By using its built-in "Quality of Service" software, it'll give gaming and VoIP packet traffic the highest priority to minimize latency. The WRT330N also supports WPA2, WPA or WEP encryption, can be used as a DHCP server and has an SPI firewall. If you can spare a pair of Benjamins right now, Linksys and its retail partners will send one your way -- your gamer friends won't know how they got fragged so fast. Check out the crazy antenna design on the next page.
