Of course, yes. Also, this will let me connect a few more devices
should the need ever arise. I keep thinking our home is at the
saturation point for devices, but, you know...

This old Linksys has been very very useful on a number of occasions.
When we go on family trips we sometimes bring the Playstation for
rainy days and I can even access PSN and Netflix on hotel networks
that try and block it.
