    Yes, that will work with 802.11b/g. I have 2 of these routers (one at my parents and one at my house) and they have both worked flawlessly for years.

    It's been said to a point, but routers can do 3 modes, "B only", "G only", or mixed.

    I was goin to mention A, but it's pretty much obselete as it's not really used anymore. I was trying to keep the discussion relevant ;)

    cheapest will be to contact me and make me an offer I cannot refuse for my old Linksys (router with no modem) or Dlink (router and modem) - prepared to exchange for an HD.... reasonable? I think so...

    I would prefer the netgear as it supports WPA. However, it is refurbished

    If you wanna go Linksys get the WRT54G not the BEFW11S4, I have the BEFW11S4 and I have problems with it.

    The WRT54G is a feature packed router that is great quality. You pay for what you get. Try to save up a little more and then get it. You won't be sorry.

    The first link sucks. "B" only.

    Check the Compusa web site after midnight. Two day sale. They have a netgear wireless for sale $29. The linsys is will have better range but at $55 is not cheap.

    I can forward the email notification if you want. I can't get a link until Friday though.
