    XP Pro, SP3, current updates, Thinkpad T60p used like a deskotp.

    I have read that the Linksys WRT54G is a good router and that it was best
    before the memory was reduced (power said to be reduced in the new smaller
    code). I have had terrible luck with their new routers that look like
    fallen over vases or dressing room powder boxes. But finding a new WRT54G
    of the large memory kind is nearly impossible.

    I do see new WRT54G+ routers with the DD-WRT firmware. Since Cisco isn't
    interested in supporting these routers anyway (warranty stuff), would it be
    a bad idea to get a new one with DD-WRT?

    If 802.11g (and b) is acceptable, then I still like and use the
    Linksys WRT54GL with dd-wrt firmware. Some versions (builds) of dd-wrt
    are better than others, so do your homework. The dd-wrt forums at are a good place to start.
