After a series of uninspired products, Linksys seems to be getting its groove back again. First the NSLU2 [reviewed here], which is re-defining the SOHO NAS market and now the WET54GS5. Given the way its product description on its website is written, I’m not sure that Linksys realizes the value of the multi-talented little box that it has produced. But by the time you’re done with this review, I hope that you will!
