Bowing to popular demand, Linksys is now supporting the Mac OS for its line of home/SOHO Wi-Fi routers with a new version of its Linksys EasyLink Advisor (LELA) Setup Wizard for Mac OS X v10.4.
Supported routers include the WRT310N, WRT160N, WRT110, and WRT54G2. And if you own a Linksys router and want to make the switch to Mac (after Vista, you’d be nutty not to), you can download the setup file from www.linksys.com/mac. Future products will ship with a LELA setup disc that includes both PC and Mac Setup Wizards. Linksys has also launched tech support for Mac users.
But if you’re thinking of buying a new Linksys router, I’d wait a week or so. The company is set to announce a new model that should prove particularly interesting for those who have to maneuver a crowded 2.4GHz spectrum or those who shuffle hefty files (like video) across their Wi-Fi network. Stay tuned.
