    Buy this. Buy it now. It's $15.

    reason it's so cheap is it's ONLY 11MBps that is slow.

    Cap - Your internet connection doesn't get any slower. And owning an 11Mb internal network isn't bad at all when there's such little traffic. The throughput on that will likely keep up with the "100Mb" you never really get from your cable provider.

    when moving files localy on your network the diffrence between 11Mb and 100Mb becomes very noticeable. Surfing the web which won't run faster then 5Mb isn't noticeable. Since I am moving files around localy that are in excess of 1 to 2GB in size I really need 100Mb to 1000Mb.
    This router is perfect for those wanting to build a cheap reliable wireless/wired network to share between a couple desktops and a laptop though. However I see 802.11b going on the way out pretty soon and no longer being supported as new technology reaches us like the new PreN or wireless N that Belkin and Linksys has on the market.

    Good price, however it's 802.11B, not 802.11G....All my stuff is 802.11G.... i know that it's backwards compatable....but is there a benefit to buying a router that's the older technology?

    'Chelle--No, don't really see benefit there. I had a bunch of 802.11b equipment "donated" from friends who were cleaning out their closets. Doesn't bother me, since I rarely transfer files from computer to computer other than maybe some text documents that I want to edit at my desk instead of on my laptop (in bed).

    The benefit for me is the price and proven reliability/ease of use. For $15 it's not an investment I'm worried about losing.

    Anyway, to each his own.
