    I'm looking into buying a wireless router. I was wondering if some one could tell me the differences on the models? What do you look for when buying a Linksys wireless router? Also, I have been reading some reviews and everyone is talking about dd-wrt. they say it makes the range better. What is dd-wrt? If someone could help me make a choice on a wireless router, and say why that models the one to go with I would highly appreciate it.

    Welcome to

    DD-WRT is a custom firmware for the WRT54G, WRT54GS and WRT54GL models. These custom firmware are firmware that are not being released by the manufacturer, but by enthusiasts that have made modifications to the original Linux based source code released under various specific public software licenses. Note these custom firmware may not support a particular router model or version so please research thoroughly before you start.

    If you are not familiar with networking and you are on a tight budget, the basic WRT54G or WRT54GL should be fine for you. Please search this forum for the many discussions on these and other routers. To start you off, take your time to have a look at our Autopsy article: It should help you to get a better idea on the variations of the WRT54G being mentioned.
