What router should I get?

    Hi all, just wondering what linksys router should I get. My old dlink died, and good reddens!

    I unknowingly bought a WRT54G v6 yesterday - loaded the DD-WRT mini firmware. The stock linksys one was unstable, kept kicking me off my own wireless!!! its working now.

    Well I stumbled on this site, so needless to say, the v6 is going back tomorrow and I am going to most likely be getting the WRT54GL for 15$ CDN more. I also enjoy little projects, so tweaking the WRT54GL is mainly why i am getting it - LOL + the fact that the L is a better router than my v6 POS.

    Just wanted to ask before I go exchange this. Is their any other linksys router that is better than the WRT54GL (with modded firmware)? Maybe the linksys wireless-N routers?

    I am a heavy bandwidth user between my systems. I am always on bit-torrent and have at least 3 wireless PCs running on the net at once between me and my family.

    Thanks for input.

    I think DD-WRT has beta support for WRT300N if you wish to try that one out

    u might wanna try the buffalo equivalent of the WRT54GL if you can, might come abit cheaper than the linksys, and includes a signal amplifier.

    anyway, for p2p, i've had no problems with tomato and hyperwrt(though i prefer tomato) other than the need to set the max connections a lil higher, and extending the expire time for established connections by 50%

    if you wanna tinker with em, and don't mind a less stable firmware though, dd-wrt and openwrt is the way to go, just be weary that u might brick your router if u go too far =)

    I have a WRT54GL ver 1.1 with Thibor 15c on it and it runs great.

    I have also picked up a WRTSL54GS which has a USB port for a external hard drive.

    If you are looking at a WRT300 I would personally look at the WRT350 instead. I have been reading some posts here about some people having problems with the WRT300.
