    I have an older laptop with 802.11B wireless. This is a work provided computer, so I can not make any mods. I have a personal one that is G. I read that the WRT54GS does not play well with B's and the WRT54G has connection problems. I don't know if I capable of doing the flash that I keep reading about. Did Version 8 fix any of the problems? What about the GX, GX2 or GX4? Should I just suck it up and buy an N?

    I would recommend a WRT54GL with a 3rd party firmware like Thibor's HyperWRT v15c or Tomato firmware.

    How hard is setup with this firmware. I know that Linksys is very easy and the person who will be using it, has enough knowledge to check email and surf the web, so if anything needs to be fixed if there is a problem, they will be lost.
