Default Lost my Linksys WRT54G today. What is another cheap/hackable router?

Back in the day the WRT54G was one of the best you could get (or at least I thought it was). If I wanted to spend $50 or so on a new wireless router what would I get?

(typing this quickly - I hate to be outside my NAT firewall <G>)

I use a hacked WRT54G to extend my retarded ATT Uverse router's wireless network.

Lots of reasons to hack a WRT.

http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Supported_Devices ? I <3 DD-WRT

This reminds me that I've got 3 WRT54GL routers stashed in the office somewhere, I should probably go find them.

Get another WRT, be happy. Love mine. No problems in the several years I have had it.

It's called DD-WRT. ------- google it.


Dude, craigslist. I buy them off CL for 10$ a pop all day long. Everyone wants the fagggoty 802.11N ----, so the WRT54G's are all over the place super cheap.

I like my wireless N because I can't stand waiting so long to transfer movies and ISOs over G to my laptops. Once you get a taste of it its hard to go back. Plus the RT-N16 can actually run the mega package of dd-wrt.


Edit- Doesn't the 54g have issues with 2048+ connections because of the low amount of ram?

How do you do a raid with a device that only has ethernet jacks.

check your favorite firmware's supported devices as mentioned above

cross reference to amazon sort by ****+ and price <50 and you're done.

and upgrade to wireless N maybe if it's in the price range.
