Conclusion: The Linksys WRT54GL is a compact unit that uses the older wireless-G technology. It can be a good choice if your laptops and desktops aren't compatible with newer wireless standards such as wireless-N or wireless-AC, and you don't want to upgrade them or you don't mind sacrificing some speed to save...
Pros: Good performance, Tried-and-true reliability, Easy to customize
Cons: Uses older technology, Not as fast as wireless-N routers
Excerpt: In our house, the kids had their own computer and their own dial-up connection to the Internet, yet they were always clamoring for a turn on my computer. Why? Because I had the DSL "high-speed" connection.
