    Does anyone know the main differences between this access point and the other Linksys G access points. Are there significant range differences? I am looking for a basic access point and don't need DHCP/Firewall/etc. I would just like to find something with the best range/reliablity etc.

    WET54GS5 is not an AP

    The WET54GS5 is actually not an access point. It is a Ethernet bridge like other products that begin with WET, that also includes a 5 port switch. An Ethernet bridge, whether it be WET product, WAP54G, or WGA54G, converts a wired ethernet client into a wireless client.

    The difference with this product is that it inherently supports 5 wired connections. The same can be acheived with a WAP54G in bridge mode connected to a switch. And at some point, the Sveasoft firmware Alchemy will support this mode on the WRT54G series.

    If you are looking for an AP, you need to look to either the WAP54G or WRT54G Series.
