The Linksys WRT54G
(and variants WRT54GS
, and WRTSL54GS
) is a Wi-Fi
capable residential gateway
. The device is capable of sharing Internet connections among several computers via 802.3 Ethernet
wireless data links.
The original WRT54G
was first released in December 2002. It has a 4+1 port network switch
(the Internet/WAN port is part of the same internal network switch, but on a different VLAN
). The devices have two removable antennas connected through Reverse Polarity TNC
connectors. The WRT54GC router is an exception and has an internal antenna with optional external antenna. As a cost-cutting measure, the design of the latest version of the WRT54G no longer has detachable antennas or TNC connectors. Instead, version 8 routers simply route thin wires into antenna 'shells' eliminating the connector. As a result, Linksys HGA7T and similar external antennas are no longer compatible with this model.
