Linksys revamps WRT54G wireless router

Boost IT visibility and business value

Not everyone wants 802.11n Wi-Fi, it would seem. Linksys has revamped its venerable WRT54G Wi-Fi router, despite being 'limited' to the old 802.11g standard.

Dubbed the WRT54G2, the new box brings the antennae inside a new, slimline case, a move that Linksys claimed would not "compromise the signal coverage".

Linksys' WRT54G2: 802.11g still in demand

The new model's predecessor has proved hugely popular, not least among folk looking to build networks using open source firmware like DD-WRT.

For users less technically minded, the new version of the venerable router incorporates Linksys' EasyLink Advisor, its wizard-like set-up system.

The WRT54G2 will be available towards the end of June for around £40.
