    I am just setting up my first WiFi network and I am debating over which router to purchase. The choices are either the WRT54G V.2 or WRT54GS. They both seem pretty much the same except for the WPA encryption and more mature firmware which is available for the WRT54G V.2 and the larger RAM, parental controls and speed booster which is on the WRT54GS.

    The fact that the WRT54GS is the next generation is appealing as it seemthat the options just get better and better through fireware development.

    Has anyone here had experience with both and might you be willing to point me in the right direction?

    The units are on sale until tomorrow so I need to decide ASAP.

    Thanks, :roll:

    If you want to use custom firmware (sveasoft, openwrt, ...) I would go for the WRT54GS because of the extra FLASH and RAM.
