    Hi everyone

    Can anyone give me some information about using the WRV54G as a hot spot?

    How do I configure the router, do I need any special extra software?
    I cannot seem to find any information about this hot spot feature in the products guide or on Linksys website.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm guessing you don't own a WRV54G because if you did, this type of information comes with it.

    If you do own one and didn't get this information, I'd check back with whomever you purchased it from. In the meantime, here's a link that should answer your questions:

    I've been a WRV54G owner for 17 months now and I like it! The fact there still hasn't been any official firmware for a year and some change still pisses me of, but beta 2.37.13 has provided my absolute stability for vpn and regular connectivity.

    Overall, it's a great little box.... Try your look and see what you get...

    Thanks for the info DocLarge.

    I don't have a WRV54G yet, but I am thinking of getting one to setup a hotspot with.

    So basicly only way to use this router as a hotspot is to use the Boingo service.

    I am actually looking for a router that does not need to use any 3rd party service like Boingo - just setup the router with some authentication passwords and connect it to a ADSL line and the client buys a password with a certain ammount of time to surf the Internet. Is there hotspot routers like that with all the built in functions or does all hotspot routers need a service like Boingo?

    Never mind I found an alternative. ZyXEL B-4000 Wireless Service Gateway, will compare it to the WRV54G.
