    Pros: Pretty Blue and Black paint - very attractive
    Cons: Simply did not work, technical assistance worthless.

    Summary: Bought this router because it was suppose to be able to supply multiple computers (both wired and wireless) with individual IP's so they could all be online at the same time. However, the Linksys 54G would not provide separate IP's, so only one computer ... read more

    Rated Show
    Pros: Cheap, easy to use, good security built in
    Cons: Nothing not expected at this price.

    Pros: ease of setup, ease of maintenance, great signal
    Cons: no ability to change power setting, no repeater option

    Summary: In fact, I have a WRT54G (without S = old version of the WRT54GS). There is an "easy install" CD but if you want to configure manually, the documentation and administration panels suppose that you have a good network knowledge/background. It is ... read more

    Summary: I recently purchased the wrt54gs v.5. You cannot use aol with this router. Linksys tech support is unable to solve this issue and claims they are unaware of it but check the net-it is everywhere. Firmware upgrade doesn't solve the issue. It is a ... read more
