I am considering extending the wired part of my network. I currently have a Linksys 802.11b wireless router with 4-port switch and rather than extending with a wired 5-port switch, I am considering spending just a little bit more for an 802.11g Wireless router with 4-port switch and disabling the wireless functionality of my current wireless router and simply patching it in as a 4-port switch. Netgear 801.11g routers are as low as $39 almost everywhere now, while the wired 5- port switch will probably cost me $20 in either a Linksys or Netgear flavor.
Looking for opinions on this planned router swap or other suggestions. thx
