    I need a router to share my (useless) broadband between my ibook and my packard bell laptop. But i want the ability to surf both with and without wires...

    I've been looking at WRT54G and WRT54GC but don't know which one to buy.
    I first got interested in WRT54G but i think it's really ugly and i've heard people say that it's a bit unstable, so at first i was very glad when i found WRT54GC.
    But when i looked in to WRT54GC a little bit more i only find people who says that the router is really slow and even more unstable than he WRT54G.
    Is this true for all of you WRT54GC-owners or is there anyone who has a stable WRT54GC?
    Perhaps there has been some new firmware releases that have fixed the problems?

    Please help me with which one i should buy, perhaps there even is another model that is even better than WRT54G and WRT54GC in the same price range?

    Thanks in advance!
    (and sorry for my crappy english :( )

    Hi oskarrr,
    i would prefer to buy a WRT54G or WRT54GS, because i have a WRT54GC at the moment and have still trouble when i get disconnected after 24h from my DSL provider (T-Online).

    so i was today with my pc dealer and he will get it back and order me a WRT54GS :thumbup: . if you have an other provider or you don't need to be connected all the time it could work without problems.

    hope i could help you.

    i need a wireless card for my packard bell laptop. Which one will work great with my WRT54GS?
    I've been looking at WPC54G, is that a good card? Is there any better one?

    Hello oskarrr.

    I recently picked up a WRT54GS and WPC54GS and they've been working great together.
