    The WRT54GL is the rebadged WRT54G v4 which is linux based. The new GS version are all vxworks as well.

    best either a WRT54GL or if money and location is ok them the WRTSL54GS is the best option all round. is a WRT54GS + Lunux + USB + FTP/Media Server and it's CPU runs at 266 default. with loads of ram as well this baby is solid!

    are they all wired? and how expensive are they? and is there a way to find out the version if buying online?

    wired and wireless. Port LAN ports and Wireless.
    pricing. take a look at the pricing from our Amazon Store


    no way to tel version with the WRT54G or WRT54GS. new ones are usually v6 or v7.

    the WRT54GL are usually v1.1 but it doesn't matter on the GL its linux

    The WRTSL54GS only has one version. v1.0

    do not buy a WRT54G or WRT54GS.

    I too am in the UK. unfortunetly your outta luck the unless you know someone in the US that can import it both I and Thibor did:)

    Linux. lets see now.

    check out the features added to the original firmware. the WRT54GL has support for 3rd party firmware. the list is somwhat outdated but still shows you what can be added!
