    After the complete death of my WRT54G (version 2.0) i must now get a new router.

    My question is, is there a version of WRTG54G/GS which does NOT disconnect or high transfers or high internet tranfers?

    I'm not satisfied with my ex-WRT54G because of these disconnection problems.

    After i tried increasing CPU speed, it died.

    Any other router suggetions? Must be 4 Switch, and wireless.

    I'm between U.S. Robotics, Zyxel, and...LinkSys.

    Any suggetions?

    Thanks! :)

    well i've never had any troubles with disconnects on my WRTs so you may want to try your luck and if it does the same thing return it... i know of several people who have had success with those little grey spaceship looking netgear things with the one antenna and they also seem to have no problem, but i'm not a huge fan of them personally i'd rather have my linksys :p

    me too. i would go for a wrt54gv2 or a wrt54gv2.2. in my opinon i think that they are the best rev out of all of them

    Call me crazy, but I have a preference for the WRV54G, but that's only because I know how to configure it to make the vpn work, consistently. Sure, it's had bad press in the past, but that's because no one knew how to "talk to it," until now (with help from a friend, I've developed a quickvpn setup guide that's working for everybody who uses it). I haven't used my wrt54 because I enjoy my wrv54g's performance now that I understand how it works. If you were interested in checking it out, you can buy it from www.pagecomputers.com for $140 (this includes shipping).

    Again, this is just my two cents worth...


    FYI, it would be in your interest to "not" mess around with overclocking the internal processors of your routers in the future :) :)

    Get an ASUS WL-500g Deluxe. Seriously. This is the most stable, WRT-compatible (= OpenWrt runs on it, don't know about other firmware projects) device on the market. Additionally it has two USB 2.0 ports, which you can use for printers, hard disks, or whatever...
    Doesn't crash, no need to overclock it, and it has excellent network speed.
