    Check out what others think of Linksys modems down on forums.whirlpool.net.au - you may think again!

    And the question is what is the question (Scooter) :chuckle:

    Is there a guide to Linksys ADSL hardware anywhere? WAG54G, WAG354G and WAG200G are all 4 port wireless based on Ti AR7 ADSL chips/ binary modules with similar Ti/CyberTAN modified Linux GPL OS.

    AG241 was the same as WAG54G without wireless. NB different versions in different markets (ie AUS had more flash/ram).

    The single Ethernet non-wireless ADSL2MUE also Ti AR7 but just used Ti reference software with a cut-down GUI.

    The AG241,WAG54G,ADSL2MUE all use the old WRT54GL style case.

    It appears ADSL2MUE, WAG54G and WAG354G are all obsolete/discontinued (in UK at least)

    The WAG54GS may look the same as a WAG200G but must use Broadcom wireless at least, and source code very different.

    There's also AM200, AM300 which are very different closed source devices.

    Broadcom ADSL chips seem to have better reputation - as used by Speedtouch etc, the above Ti AG241/WAG54G/WAG200G even includes Broadcom GPL code (for WRT54GL style NVRAM) - I guess it saves a few cents per device to use Ti?

    Thought I'd seen one somewhere, routers with ADSL don't generally get as much attention as those without!

    I guess there are other differences in internal chips used for switch, adsl, cpu and wireless as well as the case between apparently similar spec boxes? But as per the WRT54G a simple version number change can mean totally different devices internally.

    A man doing WAG autopsies is required (I'm only a generalist) ! :biggrin:
