"There has never been a better time for families or students to install or connect to a network than this Back to School season, said Mike Wagner, Linksys Director of Marketing. "Students and families can do so much more with their home network than just sharing an Internet connection among all the computers in the home or at school. They can connect wirelessly or via Ethernet cables to share printers, play multi -player games, stream music from their PC to their stereo system and much more. In going wireless, students can access the Internet in wireless enabled classrooms or study areas such as libraries, bookstores or coffee shops. Now is the ideal time to get wired or go wireless!"

The Linksys "Hot Summer Savings" mail -in rebate program offers limited -time discounts on wired routers and adapters as well as Wireless -B and G products from any Linksys reseller in the US and Canada. Once the user has a broadband connection, all that is needed is a Linksys wired or wireless router, which enables Internet sharing, resource sharing and security, and wired or wireless network adapters which connects your notebook, desktop and other devices to the network.
