Linksys Wireless G Broadband Router – Review

Setup a Wireless Network at Home

Wireless.jpgI am using iBurst as my broadband connection. This might not be the best solution for everyone (and might not even be a KNOWN solution for everyone reading this), but it DEFINITELY works like a charm for me. And, because of the fact that I have a wireless network at home, I also recommend using a laptop, so that you can browse the internet from anywhere in the house. A complete mobile solution. 😉

Anyway, here are the components for my wireless network at home:

  • Wireless Broadband router – Linksys Wireless G Broadband Router
  • Laptop – Dell D610
  • Broadband connection – iBurst

I fully recommend the Linksys Wireless G Broadband router, as it definitely works for me. I haven’t had any issues with it, and I use it for MANY hours a day, using VPN software and direct internet access. Some of the features of this router are:

  • Internet sharing router
  • 4-port switch
  • Wireless-G access point
  • Shares a single internet connection with ethernet wired and Wireless-G & B devices
  • Wireless data rates up to 54Mbps
  • WiFi protected Access
  • Wireless MAC address filtering

It was really easy to set this router up, almost a case of plug in, turn on, and connect. Though I fully recommend altering some of the default settings, especially with regards to security. Some settings that you should definitely modify:

  • Basic Wireless settings – Disable SSID broadcast – Prevents others from discovering your wireless network
  • Wireless Security – Enable a security mode and set a strong password

With this equipment, you can browse the internet for recipes while cooking in the kitchen, look for TV Schedules while sitting in the lounge, or update your blog while sitting in the garden enjoying the sunshine. Having a wireless broadband connection is a definite must have for every home.

  1. Hi, Just wondering how the wireless would work in a garden on a PC? Laptop maybe. Do you have to carry everything out with you?

  2. I often go outside with my laptop and sit in the garden and work. It’s a GREAT thing to be able to do. Especially working from home.

    I’m not so sure it would be fun doing this with a PC though, because you’d need to take the keyboard, mouse, screen AND the actual PC, set that all up, ensure you have a cable to power the setup, and then work…
