    I've been thinking about buying a WRT54G or GS router for quite some time now but tomsnetworking's test sais that it has very bad throughput in long range.
    How good is the range?

    Also heard about the freeze-problem on heavy-load, is it fixable and so on?

    Thanks in advance.

    I have a WRT54GS v2.0 and am using DD-WRT v23 firmware. It is stable and reliable with more features than any router under $500. Do some research here because not all Linksys WRT54G/GS's are not equal. Also Toms Hardware is a great resource but tend not to evaluate third party firmware as this voids warranties and lacks corporate support. Good Luck. Hope this helps.
