Recommendation

    So what is the best Linksys home router out there right now? I currently have WRT54GS V6 running 1.52.2. It's a complete mess. Constantly disconnects all the clients from the internet and locks up. Power recycle clears it. I just recently added an XBox360 and the problem has gotten worse. I've searched here and in other forums for a resolution with no luck.

    So now I'm ready to toss the WRT54GS in garbage and get a new one. Which one is best? Home environment. 4 wired clients an two (sometimes three) wireless clients. Comcast is the ISP.

    Thx

    I recommend a WRT54GL or a WRTSL54GS with 3rd party firmware (like Tomato Firmware)

    Are the current versions compatible with the third party firmware? Or do I start looking on eBay for a particular version?

    Thx

    both are in production and support 3rd party firmware. it was only the WRT54G or the WRT54GS that changed its chipset and OS so it made it harder to use 3rd party firmwares.

    Thanks for the recommendation. I got a 54GL and it's currently runnig the latest stable build of DD-WRT. I love this router. My old (non-flashable) 54GS is headed for the trash.

    Thanks again.
