    Hey all,

    I have an MN-700 which has been discontinued by MS. They are giving me my money back (granted the router is 1.5 yrs old) and I am in the market for a new router. I want to know which router to get as I have heard a lot about the WRT54G but which version should I get as I am very interested in using the modded firmware. Please advise as their are a few versions of these things out there that are extreemely simlilar. Open to suggestions.

    Depends on what you want to do with it cause there are multiple hardware revisions for each of the models.....

    Linksys WRT54G
    Linksys WRT54GS

    And another one which is a cool product if you want NAS along with the routing stuff.
    Asus WL500g

    Call their support number. Told them the router frequently drops/disconnects/locks out the wireless/etc/etc/etc (all true btw...) and also, it sparks when I insert the power pin into the router to top off the cake so I told them I don't need a fire. They usually offer to send you a new one but I guess they are running out of supply since they no longer do networking and offerened me a full refund with receipt or todays value 40 bucks if I dont have the receipt. Found my receipt for 85 bucks. I got the WRT54G btw guys and am running hyperwrt on it. So far so good it seems. I have dropped here or there once a day some how some way which i cant figure out b/c my modem line is clean and the modem itslef is not dropping (SB 5100 MoTo). I don't mind it though since it has np reconnecting itself which in the end is what matters.

    Anyway, enough rambling, good luck and thanks for the tips.
