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.
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.
Summary: I bought this to replace an older Linksys router. Thought I was buying the V2 but got a V1, my bad I should have asked. Only downside to this router is a lag renewing leases for IP addresses. Otherwise I like the open control and easy interface.
This is a great cost effective home or small business wireless router.

Summary: This is a great home and small business wireless router. I now have two of them, one at home and one at the office. They are easy to set up, reliable, and they provide very good wireless coverage. My realized wireless network speeds are at least double what I experienced with my previous router. My range is also significantly better. The bottom line is that this is a great inexpensive router.
When the "closed" or low-end just don't fit the bill--this will!

Summary: Provides the features I wanted (NAT, MAC filtering, port redirection, etc.) Also got it for a good price on eBay auctions. Replaced a 10 year old Linksys with this and I'm happy with it so far. The Linksys was so old that no more updates were being released and there were a few features I needed and couldn't get. Also using this in tandem with an Apple Airport Extreme. The APE is good for my Mac and IOS devices and serving as a TimeMachine server.
