Hi Everyone:

       I am in the process of trying to learn as much as possible about my new Linksys 802.11-g Wireless Broadband Router (Model WRT54G).  On the front panel, there is an area labeled WLAN.  Above it, there are two lights.  Once is labeled Act which is off and one labeled Link which has a steady green light.  
With this in mind, could someone explain the significance of these lights for WLAN?

       Thank you

       George

WLAN stands for "Wireless Local Area Network".

The ACT stands for "Activity".  This LED will blink when there is some sort of activity (or traffic) on the wireless portion of your network.  The LED labeled Link, is just that.  It means that the wireless network is available.

In case you don't have the manual that goes with this unit, you can get it right from Linksys, at the following URL, choose your version of the router (located on the label on the bottom), and you will have all the downloads available to you:
