It just works

  • Summary: Router came very quickly (2 days), excellent packaging, all clean/new, Ethernet cable, CD, power block, and router. Enclosed paperwork identified the router as v 1.2, actual label on case reads v 1.1 but not sure it matters.

Yep, old reliable WRT54GL with rotten old 802.11g wifi is doing the job again. Cool, slow and steady. Old reliable. ex ovo omnia
  • Pros: Works fine and lasts a long time. Does everything it was designed to do. THE most stable and reliable router I've ever experienced. I started putting these in friends and family homes ~8 years ago, and many are still in service. If all they need is internet access, a couple Ethernet ports and bas...
  • Cons: Old. This technology is very old. Look at the date of the first review. Other than firmware updates, this thing hasn't changed in 10 YEARS!!!
