Linksys router targets travelers

Linksys' new Wireless-G Travel Router with SpeedBooster (WTR54GS) gives travelers the ability to set up a wireless network in a hotel room or through a hotspot, such as an airport or coffee house. The device is designed to let users share a single wireless Internet access account with colleagues or friends, notes the Cisco Systems subsidiary.

Linksys states that the product's travel-friendly form factor includes a built-in power supply and antenna, as well as a WAN port for connection to a cable or DSL link and an Ethernet port for connecting an additional wired device or computer. Other features include a "push-button" setup function that helps simplify configuration and the installation of WPA security, as well as 802.11g and 802.11b support. The $99 product is available now.
