    I just picked up a set of WRT54GS units and now see they are marked "v.5". The most I see posted anywhere is WRT54GS v.4. Does anyone have any info on the v.5? Will the GS v.5 become braindamaged like the WRT54G v.5?

    Any insights, especially into future hardware upgrade paths, will be welcome.

    First indications; we have a problem Houston.....

    The GS v.5 looks exactly like the G v.5.

    Firmware fails early while loading (IMO, low memory)

    Next question; what is the general concensus for which hardware platform to move to? LinkSys seems to have shot themselves square in the foot.

    And cost me (I am sure 'us') a lot of $$$ and especially time.

    Please, let's gets some feedback. We all have projects we need to complete and we all cannot waste any more time and $$$ on a brain damaged LinkSys.

    This has been hashed over a dozen times no need for new thread, see existing. Did you read the sticky posts about v5 or the autopsy?

    WRT54GL or WRTSL54GS are best choices.
