You can do all that now with out that program.

You log into the router to setup the wireless name and security.
File sharing is done in windows, and the router has a list of all connected devices :wink:

Basically Cisco took all those and put them in one interface. Since I always do it manually I am not aware of another program that does the same as Cisco.

I'm in the same position as Shane. I do all this manually but I have also heard that for home users Cisco Network Magic is very nice because it does provide that interface. It was suggested by what I read that it was pretty unique in that aspect.

There are definately high priced alternatives and there very well might be some free ones since the time I read that. I don't know of any off the top of my head.
