    My friend was at Fry's today ('s retail store) and he talked with one of the workers there. He said that Linksys pulled their V1-4 models of both the WRT54G and GS, only leaving the V5s. Can anyone confirm this, or was it just something pulled out their ass?

    If so, anyone know where to get older models besides amazon or ebay?

    I have one in stock,WTR54GS V.4. but it's on ebay for $170.00

    The reason for the price is that it's been programmed by my uncle who works with linksys. Looks like he has done something really impressive to this router and its NEW,too.

    lol thats $100 more than any buy now price for a brand new WTR54GS, if your uncle has done something to it, then it is not new.

    Look in the back of the pile, you'll find old G/GS units in stores.

    I prefer the WRT54GL unit, it's their guaranteed Linux model with no futzing around looking at serial numbers. Available by mail-order from NewEgg, etc. Also saw the GL and the newer WRTSL54GS on shelves at my Sacramento Fry's. However Fry's is kinda pricey on these things, I just mail-order them. It's nice to know I can run over there and get one if I really need it now though.

    So it costs $80.00 for a new one, and you're charging $170.00 because your "uncle who works at Linksys" done something really impressive to it?

    I'd like to know what's so impressive that he did that justifies more than doubling the price of a new router.

    Also, who's your uncle? As far as I know, the guys who works on this router don't have any nephews from Florida!
