Linksys Offers EVDO Connection with New Broadband Router

Rather than use the standard 3GP services of your mobile phone service provider and likewise speed up that usual WiFi connection you have at home, here is one solution to your problem. Linksys has unveiled a new kind of Ethernet router that may very well go in hand with your default wireless router, the Linksys WRT54G3GV2-ST Mobile BroadBand Router for Sprint EVDO.

Apparently, we have had issues as far as faster and efficient connection using wireless Internet connectivity both at home and in the office. But now, with the proper influx of EVDO solutions, no longer will you have to worry about sharing connection and also worry about the slow connectivity. Linksys has addressed the problem and based on the features of this new Mobile BroadBand Router for Sprint EVDO, it is just a matter of time before business and office owners would be out in the market to purchase one of these new solutions by Linksys.

Even customers with just one computer in a household or office may find the 3GV2 useful if they are currently forced to locate their computer where their EVDO signal is best, rather than where they want to actually use their computer. By using the router where EVDO signal is best, their computer can be located where they want it, or they can use WiFi connection to router and wander aimlessly without affecting EVDO performance.

The 3GV2 is also a great solution for other electronics that can use WiFi or ethernet connectivity to access the internet but cannot directly use an EVDO card or USB modem. Gaming consoles like the Nintendo Wii, Sony Playstations and Microsoft Xbox have no way to directly connect to the internet using EVDO, but customers who utilize a 3G router like the 3GV2 can play online games like World of Warcraft (WoW), and Super Smash Brothers Brawl… among others.

This is impressive and everything but Linksys needs to do better! Their competitors are already using WiFi N radios while they’re still stuck with a 3G router with just the weaker WiFi G.

Linksys is a big name out there and this time, they had better prove it!

Another thing I noticed was that it doesn’t use gigabit for the built in four port ethernet. This is a gigantic stumbling block for Linksys and their new device.

Viewing your favorite Youtube episode will be slower because of this thing. I say they go bak to the drawing board and make it right!

one to two megabytes of information should be enough. But if you’re downloading something large it’s going to take a while.

Another potential problem would be transferring large files form one computer to another, as this happens most of the time in office situations.

So it’s a n-brainer then that Linksys may have jumped the gun too early here without putting in the features most wanted by both network administrators and other IT personnel.

However, if you’re a light user, like people who play their Nintendo DS via WiFi, I think this should be enough for you.
