    So I'm looking for another router to use in client mode. I want to be able to connect a 360 and a PC to the LAN ports on it and then use it's wireless to connect to my existing router.

    Only I can't seem to find specific info on any product page for any current (or recent) model. I've looked at Linksys, Dlink, Netgear, Belkin. I don't really care who's router it is, just as long as I can use it for what I want.

    I currently have a Linksys WRT54G v5, connected to my main switch for my wireless devices.

    Any suggestions.

    The only devices, to the best of my knowledge, that support client mode out of the box, are game adapters (and possibly print servers).

    That being the case, which Linksys box is my best choice? I've found WRT54G's, WRT54GS's and WRT54G2's. Not sure of the versions on them though.

    WRT54GL, and then load Tomato or other 3rd party firmware. In client mode you still have all 4/5 ethernet ports available for wired devices.

    I don't know the G2s, but the newer Linksys WRT54Gx routers are all "feature challenged".
