I'm looking to replace my WAP54G (802.11bg) wireless access point. I
really need to get more speed to the wife's computer, and I don't want
to run wires.
I'm thinking I'd like to get something that DD-WRT can run on, and
possibly something with dual radios and/or dual 2.4ghz and 5.0ghz
band, so I can have a secured network, and an open, slower network for
My home network looks like this:
cable modem <---> router <----> GigE Lan switch <-- clients
Unfortunately, my router is only 100mb/s on each port, which is fine
for WAN access, and most wireless, but not any more. And I don't want
to replace it since it's a WRAP board from PC-engines running m0n0wall
and doing a *great* job for what I need. Silent, no moving parts,
easy to manage.
Mostly, I want a fast, secure wireless WPA2 home wireless network.
Maybe I'd keep the WAP54G around for public access... or maybe it's
time to bite the bullet and replace my WRAP board with something
I'm looking at the following:
BUFFALO WZR-HP-G300NH (native DD-WRT support from factory!)
Any hints or suggestions or feedback?
I've been a lurker on these lists for a while, but I wanted to let everyone know: WPI's ACM chapter is hosting a Linux Installfest on November 2 at 7:00PM. We expect to have a panel of Linux community members speaking prior to the installs. Last year we had an estimated turnout of 50-75 students. If any of you would like to join us for installation, to hear the community members speak, or just for moral support then please feel free! We will be meeting in Fuller Laboratories Room #320.
