Linksys Wireless-G Products

I already have a wired 4 port Cisco 800 router and HP notebook attached to a docking station on my desk.

I’d like to create a wireless connection for those times when it is more convenient to work from another room in the house.

I’m leaning towards a Linksys wireless-G Ethernet bridge, model: WET54G which will plug into one of the 4 ports of the wired Cisco router and a Linksys wireless-G PCMCIA card, model: WPC54G for the HP notebook [O/S Win XP pro SP2].

I chose Linksys products because they are part of Cisco Systems and I already have a wired Cisco router so thought it better to match like with like.

I’ve zero knowledge of wireless technology and have read reviews of the above products which range from brilliant to useless so confusion reigns.

Do any of you guys out there have experience of these or other Linksys products and if so, how did you rate them?

A product which enables p.c. based music and image files to be played on a hi-fi or t.v. in another room via a wireless connection. It was not easy to set up but I can't tell you whether their other products are any easier. I used the Linksys internet help desk a couple of times. I thought that they were not particularly quick and not all that helpful. Hardly enough info for you to form a reasoned judgement, but hopefully, as other responses flow in, a pattern might emerge!:)
