Top 6 54 Mbps Access Points

Like if this guide is helpful
An access point is a central part of a wireless networking system. It is the central transmitter as well as a receiver of radio signals. A typical access point features a radio transmitter, an antenna, and a network adapter. It supports wireless communication standards, namely, those associated with Wi-Fi. One access point can provide an Internet connection for several computers either via a wired or a wireless connection. "54 Mbps" next to "access point" refers to the speed at which the access point connects to the modem. For most home and business users, this speed is more than adequate. 54 Mbps access points are available in high street electronics stores as well as sites such as eBay.
