What does the "C" stand for?

    A friend told me that the C at the end of WRT54GC meant that my router cached pages. I would think that since it is called a compact router, the C means Compact not caching.

    Someone please tell me that he's wrong and mean it. I hate caching. But I love the size and looks of this router.

    Thanks

    nope, the router is not a proxy and therfore does not cache pages. the C does stand for compact.

    I don't see what you have against a caching proxy anyway...

    Same thing I have against AOL... I guess.

    I like to see the web fresh each time. That's why I run a cache cleaner.

    if the web hasn't changed it REALLY doesn't matter if it's comming from a cached source, and if it has changed it will be loaded from the site...

    So, I'm a dork and I am hung up on weird thought that I don't want extra stuff stored for me.

    Whatever. Thanks for answering my question, though.

    C stands for compact.
