    Hey Joint Chiefs of Staff, what kind of speed do you usually get with the Linksys router with speed booster? In order for the client computers to take advantage of speed booster, you need to buy a compatible network adapter right? Otherwise it'll default to regular "G" speed? Also can the router work in speedbooster mode for network adapters that can take advantage of it and work in regular "G" mode for adapters that can't and use regular "G"? What kind of firmware are you using? The official Linksys ones or a "hacked" version? If you can answer all of these questions, that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    I don't know much about wireless routers...or routers in general , but I don't recommend any USR wireless routers. Especially the model from this thread. They have proven to be very unrelable.

    I agree, I Have gone though 2 of those routers, both with the same problem. Kept getting random reboots. I finaly ended up getting a Netgear wireless b/g turbo router. I have had almost no problems with this router!

    Since you already have a BEFSR41, I would recommend the WAP54G...

    ...and install the HyperWAP firmware.

    I run a BEFSX41 and a WAP54G with no serious issues except a bad WPC54G PCMCIA wireless NIC. I replaced the bad NIC with a WPC54GS.
