Summary: Bought with the intent of loading DD-WRT Turns out that you can't load all firmwares because it's version 2, a lot of builds can only use v1. That's acceptable because it worked in the end but I would have liked to know before I bought.
Summary: My buddy has a Linksys WRT54G that's served a lot of years in a very high use environment, where there's always at least one person in an online multiplayer game at any given time. After a while in that, the thing is breaking down. Understandably so. I thought it was time to get him a new router. I knew Netgear had been garbage in the past, but this one was rated rather highly, so I took a chance on it! And yep, Netgear is still garbage.
Summary: Very simple to install and it provides and eccedes internet service quality and speed .. I was able to easily follow prompts and in a few minutes surf on my other devices in the apartment ..Very cool...
Good and reliable router as long as you don't need parental controls

Summary: I bought this router to replace a Linksys E1200. The Linksys had become unreliable when I had upgraded to firmware 2.004, and there is no way to go back to older firmware. Suddenly the Linksys router was unable to get an IP address from the provider through my bridged DSL modem, it only worked taking the DSL modem out of bridge mode. Also there was unexplained loss of Internet connection events with the Linksys when there is high traffic.
Cons: Whenever it meets any amount of interference, link speed drops like a rock. The router itself lowers its transmit rate to crazy low levels whenever it thinks there's interference, whether there's enough to warrant it or not. This happens randomly, with the latest firmware version, and with custom firmware.
