Upgrade of the WiFi

So after about a year of delay I have begun to upgrade my home wireless network from 802.11b to 802.11g. Basically I am going from 10mbps to 54 mbps in speed or an increas of about 5x. This is a major need not only b/c our cable modem has increased speed but also because the file traffic from servers and to/from laptops has incresed. Here is a breakdown of the hardware.

Wireless Router:
D-Link Wireless Cable/DSL Router 4-Port Switch - 802.11G - 54Mbps - DI-524
$19.99 after mail in rebate
