    Hi all.

    I've narrowed my router choices down to these two. I'll be connecting to two devices in my house:

    1. An upstairs computer - distance ~50' thru several walls, and
    2. A wireless ipod dock - distance ~20' thru two walls.

    With this set-up, does the WRT54GS (with Speedbooster) have any advantage in range/speed over the WRT54G?

    Thanks,

    Tom

    EDIT: Would the WRT54GL be a better choice than any of the above?

    After reading here/elsewhere about the various versions of WRT54G/GS and what firmware worked and didn't work with these versions and that Speedbooster didn't do all that well going thru walls anyway, I went with the Linux-compatible WRT54GL.

    That's the right choice!
