    I just replace a WRT54GC with a WRT54G with dd-wrt prefinal4 for a customer... and the customer was so mad about that piece of crap he told me to keep it...
    What should I do with it?
    Any hacked firmwares for them out there?

    Is just crap it couldnt handle no more than one connection at the time also range sucked as well.
    At the end the GC didnt even hold the NAT table! It would get the WAN IP and forwarded to the any system in the Netwok so you would have all kind of crazy IP conflicts.
    I was there almost once a week so the client got mad and just sayd to give him a better solution... heheheh he is way happy now with the WRT54G :)

    Dunno guys, I bought a WRT54GS v2 a couple of days ago from Best Buy. My wifi adapter had trouble connecting to it at all. My parents' PC and my sister's laptop had trouble getting a connection to it as well. I returned that and tried the WRT54GC and everyone is happier now. It works very well for us.

    No need to be grouchy ;)
    Is not what people think is the problems they are having thats what I was trying to get at...
    I wonder if you have a different hardware rev?!?
    As far the GS rev2.0 I have 3 of them working flawlesly with DD-WRT.
    Did you use the default firmware in the GS?
    Did you upgrade the firmware in the GS from the Linksys site or to any 3rd party firmware?
    How about the GC...
    Did you have default firmware or did you upgrade it?

    Trying to figure out if they have a new Hardware rev in the GC. Because if tbey do I am going to buy one and test it is very convinent to my customers they want there AP in very minimal space plases since they are in restaurants.

    I tried the latest official Linksys firmware first then HyperDrive and both gave the same results. I don't have any other wireless items in my home. I even tried the HGA7T antennas from Linksys and we all still had trouble connecting to the 54GS. I disabled all the security options in the configuration as well and still had problems. This was my second 54GS by the way (first one v1, had the same problems).

    I purchased my WRT54GC from Amazon.com about a week ago and it had the latest firmware from Linksys already.

    well, speaking as a technician.. I don't know why anyone would be selling someone a GC as a solid, dependable solution when it's been available for TWO MONTHS. I wonder why a TWO YEAR old router with a 3rd-party firmware now on its fifth revision is more reliable.. :roll: I'm not making excuses for Linksys or Marvell, but this is the reality of the industry - First retail release of any product -software or hardware is basically just a paid public beta. :x


    I have installed plenty of G's and GS' and with the latest official firmware or DD-WRT they both work great. I also own both a G and GC, and they work fine for me.. however anyone who's expecting a GC to perform as well as a G/GS with a 2-year lead in development is only kidding themselves - brand-new chipset, no source even available yet.. come on!

    come back and post in six or eight months and tell us how it works.

    My WRT54GC has been running almost two months now with heavy network traffic (lots of streaming AV content between PC's and online, lots of online gaming, large file transfers, etc.) and it's still working very well.
