Picked up a Linksys B/G router for less than $60 today; N was overkill for this particular installation, and the previous Netgear had not endeared itself. The CD-based setup utility worked fine on the Mac and the router was up and running in 10 minutes without a trip through the web-based...

I used to be a diehard supporter of Linksys products -- I always bought their routers and adapters for myself, familiy and friends. Some of the routers I bought a year or so ago we solid and the software was very handy. Once my old one died (the AC adapter plug on the unit went bad), I...

Over the Christmas break, my girlfriend's family had gotten the WRT54G2 from their Internet provider (Earthlink) to replace the WRT54G that was not working. So as the tech guy for the family, I offered my help in setting up this router. We started at 8:30 pm and followed the instructions...
