Question on Linksys Wireless router

Hi all,

Ubuntu 11.10 64bit

Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router WRT54G v2

I'm prepared changing ISP. Currently I'm running ADSL with 6MB download speed, wire LAN connection. The new ISP shall provide 4MB/4MB DSL with wireless LAN connection. The captioned wireless router will be provided by new ISP.

After searching on Internet it was found that the Data Transfer Rate of the wireless router is 54 Mbps. It will be sufficient for Internet connection of 4MB/4MB. But it will be slow for transfer of Data on LAN. It is there any suggestion other than requesting new ISP for supplying wireless router with 1G data transfer rate?

Furthermore will it be any problem on installing the Linksys wireless network interface card to Linux PC?

Thanks in advance.

Buy your own router that meets the wireless specification you require and use that instead of the free one.

Most retail routers are compatible with with the well-known ISPs broadband services. It should tell you on the packaging.

I use BTInternet for broadband, and three different routers I have are all compatible with that ISP.

Hi,

Thanks for your advice.

I must ask the new ISP whether it is allowed using my own wireless router. My current ISP won't allow me using my own wired router. Otherwise technical support won't be provided.

You have to have a pretty fast computer to use 1G nic transfers.

Just use a 1G switch after the modem if you need a fast lan.

Hi jefro,

I was talking about Intranet connection for large amount of file transfer between PCs. I think I can use the router ports connecting the PCs for that purpose if necessary.

Intranet is a lan.
