    Yes. I now own a WAG54G (Similar to WRT54GS). Right now I have PC 1 attached to Port 1 of this modem / router, and PC to connected to Port 2 via cables. As soon as I can afford the wireless card, I'll set up PC2 to access the WAG54G wirelessly. The only reason I have PC1 set up via cable connection is because of my high speed d/l through emule.

    Also, I worked out that $140 for the wireless card seems very expensive to me. It worked out to be 59.62 and I know I can get the same card for 35 in some UK sites and definately 43.85 on Amazon.co.uk w/ free shipping.

    Do shop around as I'm sure you'll find it cheaper somewhere else

    Manufacturer Part No.: WMP54GS
    Manufacturer Warranty = 12 months

    $78.00 = 33.00 GBP Very good price

    $76.95 = 32.77 GBP Even better

    That is a bad deal. Go to Newegg.com and get a 200 GB for $110 US shipped.
