    Hi All ,

    I what to add WRT54G to a my company network, a have 3 office on one floor where i cannot install network cable , so i want to use linksys just as access point , so users with laptop can connect to our lan and share files with user on regular PC and server.
    Can I do this with WRT54G ?

    Don't see why not, I'd be certain to put in all the security measures I could. Especially changing the default passwords and SSIDs and turning on WPA.

    Is there a specific concern regarding why this might not work?

    Are you planning on using an existing router and having the WRT54G sit behind this?

    In addition, there is the matter of signal quality and range that may affect the outcome.

    If you already have a router don't use the wrt54G. Use a WAP 54G wireless access point.
