    Hi all just found your site after a few hrs of reading and checking links :biggrin: I hope you guys might be able to help me:confused: I am looking to get a new cable router as I have just moved over from ADSL to cable. I have read that the Linksys is the way to go? I mainly play online games and do a bit of downloading. There will be 3 PC's on the network and a soon to be added 4 on wireless.

    I am very confused as to which Linksys to go for? Then there are good model versions to have........ sigh :confused: Anyways I think the model I need is the Linksys WRT54GS? what version I havnt a clue?

    I have seen one of these for sale second hand with the serial number CGN10D782088 not sure if this is a good version or not or does it matter? Any help would be great guys

    Thanks for the reply guys :thumbup: So it looks like its the WRT54GL due to it being still available? I thought the GS was a better model :confused: What version are they up to( WRT54GL)?

    Overclockers in the UK have them for sale. Can I just buy this anywhere without having to worry about which version they are? Also are the WRTSL54GS v1 available still or they just hard to come by.

    I don't think the SL is available in the UK yet (that's what I've been reading, I may be wrong).

    Hi Slam do you mean the GL or is there a model called SL, I'm so confused :confused: The one I was looking to buy was from this site in the UK >>Overclockers UK<< I was also looking to buy this one off Ebay >>Ebay USA<< :confused:

    No, the GL should be available in the UK (WRT54GL). I was speaking of the SL (WRTSL54GS) that Toxic mentioned as being 'the best' (and I would agree). This router has more memory, a faster processor and a USB port for simple network sharing via the router. I'm not sure that the SL is available in the UK, although I could be wrong.
