Cheap, feature-rich router. Great bang for the buck.

felipefol, Ebay
3 August 2012
  • Summary: I bought this router (WRT54GS v3) with the intention of flashing an open OS on it, like Tomato or DD-WRT. The 3rd version of WRT54GS is ideal for that, because it has a lot of flash memory (8MB) as opposed to the later versions, which allows me to cram as many features in as I need.

DD-WRT mega compatible. Check router version to make sure!

  • Summary: Great router. Flash it with dd-wrt mega to make a $30 router function like a $150 router! Vey simple to use, and the antennas can be swapped out for high gains for added range.

Awesome!

  • Summary: Why would you waste your time buying the other model that doesn't have SpeedBooster? Seems awfully foolish to me. It probably only helps a negligible amount but its the principle off the thing!
  • Pros: I've been working with computers for 25 years and have used many different makes and models of routers and this model has been the best. I set it up around three years ago and have not touched it since. It has given me absolutely no problems whatsoever. You cannot beat that!
  • Cons: none at all

Great Router

Robert W., Newegg
27 December 2008
  • Summary: The firmware that come with it is ok, you might want to consider putting a Linux firmware on the device. For the average user this product is great.
  • Pros: Great router especially for the money. Does what it's supposed to do without lots of frills. Didn't take me long to set up and for the average person it shouldn't either.
  • Cons: The software CD that came with it was trash. It never detected my router. It was much easier and faster to just manual set it up. Takes less than 5 minutes.

Reliable with a capital R!

3 December 2008
  • Summary: The setup assistant program for some reason wouldn't detect the router when everything was perfectly set up, so to me, it was junk. This wasn't a problem at all, because I just went in and manually configured it, which was easy and I should've done it from the start.
  • Pros: It does what it's designed to do, and it does it well. None of the people I know who have this router have had any problems at all.
  • Cons: None.

perfect...

  • Summary: Had to snatch my WRT54GS at a local retailer while in a hurry. If not for the immediate need, I would have ordered the WRT54GL from newegg. If you can assume all other things being equal (and you never know what you'll get with these routers), the 'GL' is the better value.
  • Pros: Seven months of wireless perfection: not a hitch, hiccup, glitch, quirk, etc., from casual single-computer usage, to torrents and videos with 6 users, never a worry. Using EDIMAX EW-7128G card in my 32-bit Vista tower (check out my review for that card...if you need a wireless PCI card for your d...

Best Home Router

Gene N., Newegg
17 October 2008
  • Summary: While default linksys firmware works reasonably well i was fortunate enough to get the 1.1 version of the router (okay that was like 4 years ago that i bought it) and tried all kinds of other custom firmware distributions eventually settling for DD-WRT.
  • Pros: Disclaimer: I've owned this boy for 4 years. Installing DD-WRT (check that its supported for the revision, nowadays you want to go with WRT54GL), makes it into a fantastic piece of equipment.
  • Cons: No gigabit ethernet, doesn't support n-draft (understandable as the early revision that i got was way before n-draft even existed)...

With DD-WRT its great!

Anonymous, Newegg
1 October 2008
  • Summary: I bought this at W@lm@art, so I could exchange it if I happened to brick it during flash to DD-WRT, thats the only reason I didn't get the WRT54GL.
  • Pros: I can't actually comment on Linksys firmware, but I flashed this to DD-WRT and it works great. Handles 5 computers under heavy network load, unlike my old Dlink.
  • Cons: nope
