DSL Router with 4 port switch - Firewall
Think of the Linksys 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.
It's all easier than you think -- the included Setup Wizard takes you through configuring your network, step by step. With the Linksys Wireless-B Broadband Router at the heart of your home network, you don't need to be a networking genius to share printers, files, and your Internet connection -- with or without wires.
