I had a DD-WRT WRT54GS (ver 6) and my new router performs better.
As true as that may be, price / performance I'm still going to give it to the WRT54GL. The performance it gives for $50 is quite good.

I as well have a D-link DGL-4300 and the WRT54GL at my fiance's place. I can't really say I notice a difference between the two to be honest.

explain to me why

Linksys WRT54GL with the DD-WRT firmware is so great...

yay... you can OC it... Thats like overclocking a regular watch. Yeah, technicaly its faster then yours.. but you will never know the difference. Its not going to make your internet go faster.

Hell if your that worried about the speed, go with a Killer NIC. those take the whole network stack and offloads it to its own CPU called (NPU network processing Unit).

But, the recomendation is a good solid router with range and stability would be N hands down. Uses MIMO to get extra range and uses accepts Multipath signals giving it more stability. The 4-5x speed is only a gimic to get people to buy it. Yeah its faster.. But DONT BUY IT BECAUSE OF THAT... buy it because its more reliable and extends further.

I've got the netgear wireless N router and a N card for my laptop. Plays BF2 and COD4 online with no lag - just like being hardwired.

Technicaly N would be better, it would be faster....248Mb/s is > 100Mb/s Cat 5. Interference might be an issue though. If its faster then that means less latency... but the 0.1ms that you save isnt quite worth the reliability that a hard line gives... but wireless is sooo freekin easy to set up then to run wires.

.... sorry to ephasize this again...

SPEED IS NOT AN ISSUE ON A WIRELESS NETWORK!
***Unless your using it for transfering HUGE files on a lan.***

200kbs download from google.com on g-wireless = 200kbs to your computer
200kbs download from google.com on n-wireless = 200kbs to your computer
200kbs download from google.com on 100Base Cat5e = 200kbs to your computer
200kbs download from google.com on 1000Base - Cat6 = 200kbs to your computer

If you ask me it clearly seems you have never comapared a WRT54G Linksys Firmware to the DD-WRT Firmware. If you have then you know that the majority of it has nothing to do with the fact you can Overclock it lol.

Have you ever tried one?
