Linksys WRT54G2 Wireless Broadband Router 802.11b/g up to 54Mbps/ 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Port x4
  • 802.11b/g 54Mbps
  • 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Port x4
  • Internal Antenna Design

Pros:

It looks cool. No problems with wired connections.

Cons:

Poor signal strength and connectivity for wireless. Using a Linksys Wireless Adapter for my PC, I am roughly 20 feet from the actual router in another room. The router itself is on the top of a computer desk. My signal strength constantly flickers between 3 bars (Good) and 2 bars (Low). Connection speed constantly changes between 14 MBPS to 54 MBPS. Works okay for basic internet browsing and functionality, but very poor performance for gaming. I've tried flipflopping the channel it broadcasts on, changing security settings to WPA2, moving the router's position and resetting to factory settings to start all over again. I have not tried updating the firmware upgrade or DD-WRT but based on many reviews that I have read on this site, even that route is iffy and a royal pain. For over 100 bucks spent total (router and USB adapter) I feel that this product (and the adapter) are a failure for wireless internet. As a first time buyer I'm real iffy about any other products from Linksys

Other Thoughts:

Not worth the hassle unless you like to challenge yourself. Wired connections are king; I don't care what anyone says.
