TigerDirect link!


I was in search of a cheap router and ran across this. I almost bought the exact one locally for double the price.

I got one for sale on Craigslist in los angeles california only it's a better model as it is not only wifi-g and a router but also it's a two phone port voip...can be used with any internet phone service.

It's not the same

TD one is WRT54GL
The Newegg that was mentioned first is WRT54G.

The GL is linux version (though there's not much difference, because you can install DD-WRT on all their routers)

Edit: Well he said it first, I just pointed out the difference

I thought since the switch to a closed operating system after (v7? or was it 8?) it was no longer possible...

Since they put the flash-able memory from 4mb down to only 2....

Or can you still do it?

I'm going to get a heavy retort from some members for saying this, but the linksys WRT54G is the worst router I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with.

I have a friend who is not very tech savy, but isn't ignorant to how networks and the such work (I taught him, and he actually learned the difference between IP and MAC addresses, etc) but he still can't solve his own networking problems. I don't mind helping him because he actually tries unlike some people. Anyway he owns a WRT54GL and has more internet problems than anyone I have ever met. It got so bad I went over to his house and personally re-setup his network from the ground up. Static IP addresses for every computer (to avoid DHCP issues he had been having), placed his 360 on the DMZ to solve his NAT issues, everything. The network was in perfect shape when I left.

A week or two pass, and he starts to get issues with the 360, then they spill over into the PCs and before long I'm back over there trying to figure out what is wrong. The router just simply stopped working, not an electronic failure but it simply would not correctly route traffic. So I flashed DD-WRT over the default, once again this solved problems for a little while until basically the exact same issues reoccurred, every few weeks he has to reboot his router. The firewall simply ignores any exceptions you add to it.

In short nothing with the router works, DD-WRT helped some, but more features cannot fix something that was unstable to begin with. I rock a D-Link DIR-615 and a Netgear GS108T managed switch and couldn't be happier. I will admit my previous D-link router was nothing to write home about either, but this D-link 615 is the best SOHO router I've ever used.

The flash memory was reduced starting (casually), the WRT54GS V.5 version (apparently to cut down on costs (mine costed me $60 two years ago)

And DD-WRT says V.7 also supports it (though I strongly recommend you against it). But remember that in the electronics world, some people (like me) get screwed by firmware changes, and some people actually get more out of their product.

One thing I do tell you is that if you do know what you're doing (I installed it just because it seemed better, and I kinda hated default FW), you are gonna get a lot more out of your current router (it has lots of functions that I don't know about/care to use)

But remember that at best, new Firmware can't help internal HW problems (if you do have them, firmware won't probably fix em)

Edit: All WRT54XL (ending with L support open firmware)
