Review of the Linksys WRT300N

The Linksys Wireless-N Broadband Router WRT300N has many desirable features that make it ideal for use in the home or in the office. The most distinctive feature of this wireless router is the paddle antenna located between the two traditional antennae on the rear of the unit. The antennas are completely mobile and are easy to adjust to get optimal reception.

Simplicity itself

The ports on the back of the router are color-coded facilitate speedy hook up. The WAN (Internet) port is blue and the LAN ports are yellow. A few icons on the front of the device display the status of the router's connections. Once the wireless connections are working, a padlock sign lights up to indicate that the wireless security system is engaged.

The Wireless-N Broadband Router is in reality there separate devices merged into one package. First, there is the Wireless Access Point which allows you to connect to the network without wires. The device also has a built-in 4-port full-duplex switch to connect your wired Ethernet devices together. Finally, the WRT300N integrates all the functions in unison and lets your whole network share a high-speed cable or DSL Internet connection.
