  • User Rating: Excellent

  • Ease of Installation:
  • Ease of Use:

Pros:easy set up, all necessary features included, performance is good

Cons:bridge mode (WDS) works only with another wg602

set it up: (it's a wg602 v3)
g only
filter on known mac address only
wpa/psk (tkip) authentication (you got to reboot xp, thoug it does not tell you to do so)
dell lattitude 610 with intel 2200B/G mini pci

wifi signal is rated excellent by xp and through put is far beyond what my web connection can provide. ('did not go through a real bandwidth measurement: I do enough of those all day long ;)
I use it through a couple of concrete walls.

did not try mixed environment (b&g)
duno if wep set up works as good

how to do set it up safely ?
- change the admin password
- setup your own (funky as ;) ssid
- filter on mac address if you have always the same computers connected through
- set up wpa/psk authentication (follow the instructions, it's easy)
- avoid mixed environments if possible (b or g but not both)
