    i want to purchase either the wrt54gl or the wrt54gs but i dont want to go through the flashing it with a different firmware process, dont feel that i would need it and that it worth risking... anyways if i get the wrt54gs with speedbooster how would i enable speed booster, does it require custom firmware or does it work with the original.. all in all what do you guys suggest i just need something to get the job done that has good speed outta the box and will be better then my wrt54g v5

    The WRT54GL is a much superior box to the WRT54GS (v5 and greater). It doesn't have the crippled RAM and flash. Search the site and you'll see similar comments. The newer WRT54GS will fold / collapse / wilt / yield under even moderate gaming or using torrents.

    ok i seee so the wrt54gl has more ram to handle more connetion usage... so i guess i shall go with it... its ok to fun factory firmware on it right...? cause i dont want to take the third party firmware risks
