Summary: Now that I finally have this router installed, it works great. But getting there was quite a battle. The big problem came when I put in the install disk. It tried to load the Symantec security tools.
Summary: [previous reviewer]- you are absolutely correct that the new version (5) of this router is downgraded compared to others. the "original" router shipped with 32mb ram and 8mb flash, and version 5 shipped with 16mb ram, 2mb flash.
Summary: For the vast majority of users, this will not be an issue. However, for those of you who use aftermarket firmware like DD-WRT and HyperWRT to take full advantage of the excellent hardware in these devices (and to overcome P2P and other issues in the default Linksys firmware) - BE WARNED.
The only thing difference between this and the WRT54G is...

Summary: I love the WRT54G which I have bought for my home a year ago. I am a college student and just bought another one since I moved off campus. At first, I had trouble deciding between the WRT54G or the WRT54GS( with speedbooster).
