Good router, not so good power adapter 07/10/2012
Great router when loaded with Tomato. Very easy to program. Excellent range when the wireless power is tweaked. Can be programmed as a range booster when linked with another WRT54GL.
The 12V/1A power adapters are under-powered. See 'other thoughts'. Also, the case is cheap plastic and there are no holes for wall mounting.
I have sold at least 200 of these routers which work great with Tomato firmware. Tweaking the wireless power from the default value to 150 significantly increases range.
Over the past 7 months I've had two units that have been resetting intermittently. Replacing the 1-amp power adapter with a 1.5-amp adapter seems to have fixed the problem. Yes, I know that tweaking the power voids the warranty and stresses the power adapter but there have been no issues until recently.
