    I currently own a Linksys WRT54GL v1.1 and its running HyperWRT/Thibor15c. Last night my WRT54G v4 Wireless Adapter died on me, so today I went to the store and all they had was the SpeedBooster stuff. Everything is working fine as it is, but I read on wikipedia about the different Linksys Routes and it states the WRT54GL v1.0 supports SpeedBooster. So I was wondering if that was true and does the WRT54GL v1.1 also support SpeedBooster. I've tried setting 'Afterburner' to Auto and Enable, but I don't notice a difference. How would I know is the SpeedBooster function is working? Do I also need to enable a setting on the PC the the WUSB54GS v1 is connected too? I'm thinking the WRT54GL Routers don't really support SpeedBooster and Wikipedia is wrong like always.... anyways, thanks for any info given.

    I also have a WUSB54GS as well as a WRT54GS v2.0... The router AND the usb adatper are advertized to be SpeedBooster capable. If I enable afturburner in Tomato, I don't notice one bit of difference than if it's disabled, while using the WUSB54GS. In my oppinion SpeedBooster is a big scam.

    Try frame bursting. It works better on compressible files, such as browsing. Anyhow, 802.11n may be what your looking for if speed is primary.
