Think of the Linksys BEFW11S4 Wireless-B Broadband Router as a kind of "splitter" for your Internet connection. Just connect your DSL Modem to the Router, and all the computers in your household can share the Internet -- all at the same time. You can connect your home computers directly to the Router with Ethernet cables, or put wireless network adapters in them and communicate over radio waves, saving the trouble and expense of running cables through your house. Once your computers are connected to the Router, they can communicate with each other too, sharing resources and files. All your computers can print on a shared printer connected anywhere in the house. And your computers can share all kinds of files -- music, digital pictures, and documents. Keep all your digital music on one computer, and listen to it anywhere in the house. Organize all of your family's digital pictures in one place, to simplify finding the ones you want, and easing backup to CD-R. Play head-to-head computer games within the household, or against Internet opponents. Utilize extra free space on one computer when another's hard drive starts to fill up. Your home network is secure, too. All wireless communications are protected by 128-bit encryption. The Router helps keep intruders out of your computers. NOTE: This Router is missing the AC/DC power adapter

Now I am in a house in Mexico which is made out of solid concrete and rebar. This does create an issue with distance, but we fixed that by setting up the router in the middle of the house, that way we still get our 11 Mbps here in the office and on the other side of the house. The greatest benefit of the router, though was its MAC address cloning ability. Even though our ISP here limits our access to a single computer which it recognizes (I learned after a couple hours of messing around with different options) by the MAC address of the network adapter card, we were able to connect an entire house of computers (>5) with the hub by simply (again using the awesome configuration utility) having the Linksys router change its MAC address to match the network adapter of the old computer. Now we have wireless access in the states, and we can bring the laptop to my parents house here in Mexico and instantly get service here.
*Can use inexpensive ISP service to a single computer to give internet and network access to multiple computers.
*Can offer both wireless and wired (up to 4 computers wirelessly) connectivity.
*Maintains speed up to 50 feet away through 3 6-inch walls filled with concrete and rebar.
*Easy to set up.
*Great configuration/setup utility which is accessable through a web browser (firmware is also upgradable by downloading an update from the website.)
*It does show a loss in speed or even in connectivity in certain "dead spots" in the house. (To fix this, you just scoot over like 3 feet in either direction and it goes from 0% to 50%).
*Poor customer support over the phone.
I bought a second one based on my experience with the first one. As I discover more and more about what this unit is capable of doing, it makes me more and more willing to recommend it. So that's what I'm doing: "I recommend that you get this router/WAP."
I noticed that using the uplink ports to connect other network switches in the chain is the preferred method to connect Linksys devices. In the field I generally use crossover cables to connect devices, but linksys wants things done thier way.
I am a computer security professional and was not overly impressed with the security of the device, however; it is sufficient. I enabled WEP (Encryption) and modified the channel number and SSID. I recommend these changes along with modifying the admin password. I was disappointd that I could not set up an access control list that restricted by MAC Address of the wireless NIC.
Overall, it's a solid product, with an intuitive user interface and more functionality then the average user will ever require. I did pair the product with wireless linksys nic (wpc11 v.3.0) that Amazon offers a great package deal on. The Windows XP configuration of the wireless nic was not as easy as configuring the wireless router, but that's another product review. I will say that I had to call tech support to verify some of the settings and the tech was excellent(fixed all in 10 minutes). I know some people complain about the wait time from linksys support, but I had a positive experience.
Another advatage of this product is the ability to maintian network connections without dropping between roaming access points. There are new wireless standards on the market, such as 802.11a (uses exclusive range for networks only), however; this product uses proven technology that works today, and is more cost effective. Next, year there is a wireless gigabyte standard, but it's still being developed. Enjoy the freedom today...I give the product 4 starts because of the excellent value and intuitive interface.
