5 out of 5 eggswrt54gl

Pros: Feature set, price, reliability

Cons: Nothing major. No wireless N

Other Thoughts: I use these routers as Wireless Access Points probably more than as routers. Flash with DD-WRT, configure wireless network, connect to network and that's it. I've spent a lot more on other access points only to run into compatibility issues, needing to reboot etc. This device, especially when flashed has proven to be super reliable. Range excellent as well. Wireless G only, but that's not really a big issue. At this price, this router is hard to beat.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: *Easy to set up

*Sturdy case. It has gotten knocked around a lot with no apparent damage

*Good range, even through lath and plaster or near other electronics

Cons: *Only A,B, or G ability

Other Thoughts: I've had this for a couple of years now, and it still works great. I have had no issues with it. The web based management makes things like changing channels or passwords easy, and doable from your desk rather than going to the router.

4 out of 5 eggsNo 1 DD WRT

Pros: when it comes to DD-WRT, WRT54 is no doubt the best one.
Stable and consistent connection really helps

Cons: Hope there will be a N300 version so that I can extend the bandwidth.

5 out of 5 eggsBulletproof router - with a caveatt

Pros: Had this router for over 5 years. Zero issues with the router. Flashed with DD-WRT. This router can run for weeks without needing to reset period. Range is pretty good.

Cons: Router's performance especially nowadays when 100Mbit is reality for most cable modems. This router cannot keep up with that type of speed. I've been only able to get 30+ Mbit/sec in best conditions even through wired mode.

Other Thoughts: Really do not want to switch out of this router as this is one of those "old faithful" machines that just keep performing. However, because it was made almost 10 years ago, it was designed for internet speed back then. I'm going to miss this router's reliability but must upgrade because it can't keep up with my cable's 100Mbit speed.

4 out of 5 eggsWell, it does the job

Pros: Works fine most of the time.
The price is right for how it performs.

Cons: Not ideal for gaming, as it occasionally loses packets or takes longer than expected to send/receive.

5 out of 5 eggsMy goto 10/100 router

Pros: I personally own half a dozen of these. once flashed with DD-WRT I set them up as wireless clients to extend connection to areas of my home that get less than good wireless signal to my main router. basically use them as wireless/wired switches. I still own and use the first one i ever had and i have never had one fail/brick on me.

Cons: The antenna's are not your typical 1/4in size (like most wireless nic's) so unless you order after market antenna's with this in mind you aren't likely to have spare antenna's laying around.

Other Thoughts: wall mount brackets! come to think of it every linksys product that comes to mind could those built in mounting slots

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding Home WiFi Router

Pros: Very easy to set up! The set up CD walks you thru the whole install and was easy to follow.

Cons: None to this point.

Other Thoughts: I have a satellite Internet connection and did not have any problems. Worked from the moment I completed the installation and has continued to provide an excellent connection for my laptop.

5 out of 5 eggs9 Years!

Pros: Router has served me well for 9 years and it's still running just fine! Day in and day out, it works...but I finally had to order its replacement:(..see cons...

Cons: It simply can't surpass 25Mbps downloads either wired or wireless..I now have 50Mbps cable access, but this router just can't handle it..when I hardwire from the modem to my PC, I hit 57Mbps...connect through the router and it drops to the low 20's. The higher speed is also causing the router to crash leaving me with 0Mbps until I reboot the router and modem.

I haven't canceled my 20Mbps DSLyet, so I hooked up the router that it works fine...back to cable and it crashes now and then..

Other Thoughts: If your access speed is below 25Mbps, you'll be fine...but if you want to go really fast...it just won't do the job.
