    I have pruchased the following:

    WRT54G - ver 2.0 hardware running Hyperwart 2.03b
    WRT54GS - ver 1.1 hardware running latest Lynksys firmware
    also trying hyperwart 2.03b

    When I have the WRT54G running my whole network runs smooth as silk, thats XBOX live and my sons computer running World of Warcraft and 3 other computers.

    When I swapped out to the WRT54GS everything screached to a big lag. My XBOX was unplayable as well as the World of Worldcraft. I thought the WRT54GS was supposed to be better because of the extra memory. The CPU speeds of both routers are the same at 200 mhz.

    My question is do you think I got a bad WRT54GS? Everything else runs ok except when there is a heavy load then it lags like hell. The WRT54G does not lag at all.

    Please comment.....

    If you bought it locally, just exchange it (it may be a good idea to flash it back to a Linksys firmware first).

    You also posted this at DSLReports. :) As I said there, my XBox gaming is just fine.

    I returned the WRT54GS and got another WRT54GS ver 1.1 router. Now it works perfectly! Must have been defective........
