    I currently have the WRT54GS set up in my home. I have 3 computers and an XBOX and it works perfectly EXCEPT when there is a heavy load on the router (XBOX Live and online gamining on 1 pc) then it slows way down.

    My question is this, Is the processor on the new WRT54GX faster then the WRT54GS? Is there more ram? If I have ALL wireless G cards running with the WRT54GX will I have better success as far as lagging when there is a heavy load or do I have to have all mimo cards to see any difference?

    I do NOT want to invest in PC cards as I already have the G setup but I am willing to spend the extra money on the router if it will help me with this lagging problem. FYI I have a cable connection 3 megs down 500 KB up.

    Please help me decide if it is worth the money.

    Thanks

    Just picked it up

    Decided to go for it. I got it for 159.99 at Best Buy as I had a 20% coupon on all Linksys stuff! So far its AWESOME!
