g wiz that's cheap: 802.11g for 10 clams!

I know that these types of posts have a short shelf life, but I couldn't let you down by keeping this myself. This week in my CompUSA flyer, I see that they are offering the Netgear WGR614 router for $9.99 after rebate. Original price is $69.99 and there is a $60 rebate!

If you've been waiting to upgrade your 802.11 "a" or "b" router for your cable or DSL connection, you might want to check this out. Remember that the 802.11g devices are backwards compatible, so if you have some wireless devices on the slower standards they will still work. The router is capable of wireless speeds around 54 Megabits per second (Mbps), although with overhead for the routing and error checking of packets, you will probably realize about 50% to 75% of that speed. Either way: much faster than the 11Mbps of 802.11b!
