    I've had hands on with the Linksys wireless 802.11g and it seems reliable and easy to set up (comes with firewall, NAT, 64 and 128 bit encryption, DHCP etc.). It's also a Cisco subsidiary. I've used DLink products but not their wireless stuff. They seem to make a good lower end product. I didn't know that US Robotics / 3Com was in the wireless biz but I suspect that their stuff would be a bit more higher end.

    I'd look for one with WPA encryption, since that's the new standard. I know that the D-Link 802.11g routers support WPA, and I'm sure many other brands do too.

    Hi ... Thanks for posting your thoughts ... I end up get the US Robotics wireless turbo access point & router for $110 canadian which has 60 dollars rebate ... So all in all this would make a pretty good deal ...Oh yes this does support WPA , WEP , TKIP and VPN
