The SMCWBR14-G router is designed to connect computers and other devices wirelessly to a cable or DSL Internet network. With the built-in Wireless Distribution System, the SMCWBR14-G can also function as a repeater. This allows the router to communicate with other wireless gateways that are linked via WDS, resulting in a wireless network with a larger area of coverage. To take advantage of this feature, users must manually link each desired wireless gateway with the SMCWBR14-G via the devices' MAC addresses.
