WRT54GL Good for Lab and 3rd Party Firmware?

    I've been running a WRT54G with Talisman Basic for a long time with satisfaction. Now I need to set up a small computer lab at the school where I teach. I expect there'll be about a dozen computers in there (8 to start).

    I'm also interested in extending the wireless reach as far as possible. All of the posts I've read about which models accept 3rd party firmware are only helpful if you already have the router. I need to know what to buy.

    I'm guessing the WRT54GL might do the job. Does it have the RAM and whatever for 3rd party firmware?

    Does it have what it takes to handle 12 computers online at once?

    If not, what do I need?
