    That's a sweet WRT54GL replacement...

    You'll probably see a DD-WRT variant first.

    Too bad it's only got a 100Mbit switch and not 1Gbit.

    Thanks for the update gbimmer3, that's a sweet router indeed.

    However, to be honest, I don't need an upgrade simply because I've managed to tweak my setup so that I get the same speeds as direct setup modem to pc (with my isp's speeds 22/5 + pb). And my good old tm has never ever crashed on me :thumbup:

    My ASUS WL-500w isn't too far from that...

    Runs Linux (including OLEG w/ N support, DD-WRT, and Tomato)
    264Mhz Processor
    32MB Ram
    8MB Flash
    USB Port x2 (with HDD, printer, and webcam support)

    Oh wait I got it refurbished for $36 at newegg...

    Router without WAN-port, that would make sense. ;)

    Amazon has it for $82.99 today.

    I was about to pick up some of the 20 or so wrt-54gl units that they have on sale for $50.

    $20 says, even if you were able to overclock your Asus' CPU to 400Mhz, it'd not be able to perform anywhere near the MIPS that this processor does. It's for the same reasons an AMD Athlon XP overclocked to 3+Ghz is not as fast a processor as an Intel Core 2 Duo at 1.8Ghz.

    Personally, I'm not buying anymore N stuff (aside from my wifi card) until it is finally standardized... And I'm not buying anymore 100mbit either...

    The WRT400N has all of the same features, and is 1gbps... plus I think it has a 680MHz processor!

    Maybe I'm looking right at it and don't see it. Where does the linksys/cisco site say it runs on linux? I see it supports linux, windows, Mac os, etc. Can't seem to find where it list its internal os is linux.

    WRT400N does not have Gigabit. Only 100mbps.

    That thing reminds me of a crab tied up and waiting to be sold at the supermarket.....

    Without dual band it will be of limited usefulness.

    I bought a Neatgear WNR834B and tried to run in 802.11N with dd-wrt. The speeds ranged from 40 mbps to 1 mbps. There are a lot of 2.4Ghz routers in my building. I can only assume the interference killed draft-n completely.

    I went back to my trusty WL-520GU running tomato. I will wait for a cheap dual band router with final N spec.
