802.11g update

Son Steve, who’s earning internship credits from NHTI working on connecting his dad’s company to the Internet, spent a couple hours this weekend swapping out the cable’s older LinkSys router to be used for the new DSL drop, and swapping in LinkSys’ new WRT64G 802.11g router/WAP combo box. After a few false starts, we were up and running: 3 wireless laptops, one wireless desktop, three wired boxes, port forwarding, 128-bit WEP, MAC filtering, and the whole nine yards. The WRT54G doesn’t have the ability to write out logs like the older BEFSR41 does, but I’m looking forward to testing out LinkLogger on the DSL line.
