    I can't found any wrt54g or wrt54gs v1-v4. Just the v5.
    Is the WRTSL54GS a good option? What's the advantages and disadvantages from this specific odel?

    You're best bet is to checkout the Linksys product information page. I haven't picked one up yet, but the ability to mount external storage to the router (and apparently there are FTP services available on the router itself) is making me seriously consider one.

    One additional benefit is that Thibor's has a HyperWRT release that is compatible with the router. So, great router + great firmware = good choice!

    I'm currently running a WRTSL54GS with Thibor's latest running and its been great - all the features of Thibor loaded on a G/GS/GL plus the inclusion of a print server (not available in stock firmware). I was able to eliminate the WPS54GSU2 which would only support my laser (Brother HL-1440) via parallel. The option of a USB port opens up a lot of potential - definitely give it a look if you think you want to get into exciting world of firmware :thumbup:

    Thanks for the answers!

    I'm looking for a router to run as AP+WDS.
    Currently I’m running 2 WRT54GS v2 with Thibor 15c, but I need to expand my network. So, my main priority is a router capable of run the same firmware...
    That’s why I’m asking about WRTSL54GS. Will cost a few bucks more than 54GL version, with twice of memory.
    My preoccupation is with signal throughput, and durability (in case of usage of high transmit power).

    the WRTSL54GS is one hot mamma! totally blew my GX out of the water and scortched my NO-NetGear 624.
    with the addition of Thibor 15(x) to the WRTSL54GS, i am actually able to run the printserver and the ftp by using a 2-port mini usb hub.
    the ONY thing missing is lack of support for ext3 and ntfs.... everything has to be FAT.... but i wont hold my breath for anyone to add it to the firmware....
    go get yourself one of them WRTSL54GS deals... highly worth it.... best router i've had.....

    ntfs write support

    In the release notes of Hyperwrt Thibor 15a (http://www.thibor.co.uk/#downloads ) it says: "Added GUI RW support for NTFS". Does this mean NTFS write support has been enabled with Thibor 15a firmware upgrade?

    yes, but it's crap, to be frank. when linksys releases the 2.02.1 sources with full ntfs support i will write Thibor16 with those changes included. also support for reiser and ext3 are included right now but you have to have a reiser/ext3 formatted disk to use them; only FAT32 can be claimed by the gui at the present time.

    Thanks for the reply, Thibor.

    I have heard references to 2.02.1 beta release. But when I contacted Linksys Tech support, they said there is no beta release that they know of, especially with NTFS write support, for WRTLS54SG. What 2.02.1 release are you talking about?

    it's being worked on, i believe. when i saw their last beta they were in negotiation for the license

    The SL is quite excellent hardware. I'm anxious to try out the 64-meg upgrade someone posted. A bit risky, but worth it IMO.

    I run OpenWRT RC5 on mine currently. But I have run Thibor and that worked very well also.
