1 out of 5 eggsAvoid Version 5 and 6 - HORRIBLE hardware

Pros: After I reset the router, it works great for about 2-3 minutes!

Cons: The WRT54G was recommended to me by a knowledgeable friend, but what we've learned is that there is a Serious hardware problem with Version 5 and 6 of this model. DO NOT BUY A VERSION 5 or 6.
I've experienced consistently slow download speeds using this equipment. I've tried everything including a hard reset, changing channels, etc.
Do your homework and read some forums on this model - the verison 5 model is literally unusable, and Linksys won't do a thing to support it. They haven't released a firmware update because they know the hardware is the problem. Avoid buying a WRT54G unless you can verify the serial number or hardware version.

Other Thoughts: I called Linksys hoping for support or a replacement as there is a well-known and blatantly obvious issue with this model. I suppose I don't really expect them to ask for my address and send out a brand new unit, but I do expect a company to stand behind it's product and admit when there is a known issue. On that concept alone, I suppose I'll purchase an entirely different brand for my replacement. Do your homework and read reviews before you make a purchase!

4 out of 5 eggsIt Works

Pros: I've had this router for years with no issues what-so-ever. It's great for home use. I used to use it with my AT&T modem. Now I use it within a very close range for my 3DS, Wii, and Wii U by disabling the DHCP server for this router so it will be a "slave" to my Comcast modem/router. The Comcast modem's signal is significantly weakened when it reaches my gaming devices. I wired the WRT54G properly to the Comcast modem.

Cons: I don't know how to use this router to extend the signal range of my Comcast modem, which means two SSIDs are broadcasting; Comcast and the WRT54G. I don't care because the mode I have it in isn't broken. Why fix what isn't broken?

Other Thoughts: I own version 8 of this WRT54G.

2 out of 5 eggsHit or miss

Pros: I bought one of these in 2003 for my parents. It still works great 11 years later, so I bought a 2nd one for myself...

Cons: I bought a 2nd one of these in 2009 and it seemed to be seriously lacking in quality. The AC power adapter died exactly 1 year after I bought it. I spent $15 to get a new adapter which restored functionality. Then another year or 2 later the router just seemed to slow down drastically. Resetting the power would restore the speed usually, but eventually it would bog down again until I was resetting the router once per day. I replaced it with a different brand of router and that resolved the problem.

Other Thoughts: Overall I have liked linksys, and I'm not entirely sure that all of the issues I experienced were the router's fault, but I was really surprised that the AC power adapter failed exactly when the 1-year-warranty expired. Maybe it's just terrible luck, but I was expecting a higher level of hardware quality than that. Using a new different router worked fine on the same network.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: If you're looking for a solid router, one that will just work and not have any problems, this is the router to purchse. I bought mine in August of 2005. I've never had a problem with it. It just works!

Cons: Speed only 10/100M on both the WAN and the LAN. If only they had the exact same model that supported 1000M WAN and LAN. That would be the router for me! I replaced this with another router with higher transfer speeds to support a NAS on the LAN. That's the only reason I replaced it. But I'm keeping this one around for when I have problems with the other router.

Other Thoughts: When I purchased it the price was $58. I'm sad to see that the price has gone up so much.

5 out of 5 eggsLasted 11 years

Pros: Easy to flash DD-WRT on. Configure it anyway you want. Can be overclocked, antenna gain can be adjusted, antenna's can be swapped out (older models anyway). Endurance, endurance, endurance, outlasted every router from everyone else in my circle of friends.

Cons: Zero, well, like one poster said "doesn't have 5GHz"

Other Thoughts: Everytime I thought about replacing this router, I thought "why?" I'm not even hitting near the limit with Comcast's "broadband" and I don't need to stream large files within my LAN. If you look at all the other routers being made today, even by Linksys/Cisco, they're absolute junk compared to this, you'll be buying a new router in less than 5 years guaranteed. Now that mines about died, I might just replace it with another, even though it doesn't have N, or the ability to do a USB NAS. Seriously, it's that good.

4 out of 5 eggsThe best home router ever.

Pros: When it comes to the home network, the WRT54G is simply the best. I can remember owning my first one many moons ago. I still own one today. I tried some of the new and fancy wireless home routers, and ended up disappointed. The WRT54G just gets the job done, there's nothing else to say. The fact it's still being sold after so many years should be a pretty good indicator as to the quality of this product.

Cons: I have never had a con for this device. That is, until today. It used to cost something like $40. To see the price now over $100 saddens me. I just don't know if it's worth that much. I almost wonder if Linksys/Cisco finally just got tired of this thing selling after so many years, and jacked the price up to discourage potential buyers....Still an absolute beast.

Other Thoughts: Makes me sad to see it up over $100 now. I hope I can find an actual suitable replacement when the time comes.

3 out of 5 eggsGood when it works

Pros: Bought this back in '07, still running.
linksys builds powerful routers

Cons: - gets lots of dropped connections
- linksys website setup is horrible
- some of the items don't connect and when they do they drop (like ps3)

Other Thoughts: I am following up on '07 product it is with a friend as of 2010, and he has the same problems, I just gave it to him cause he didn't have a router.
