First, theres the Wireless Access Point, which lets you connect both screaming fast Wireless-G (802.11g at 54Mbps) and Wireless-B (802.11b at 11Mbps) devices to the network. Theres also a built-in 4-port full-duplex 10/100 Switch to connect your wired-Ethernet devices together. Connect four PCs directly, or attach more hubs and switches to create as big a network as you need. Finally, the Router function ties it all together and lets your whole network share a high-speed cable or DSL Internet connection. Once your computers are connected to the Router and the Internet, they can communicate with each other too, sharing resources and files. All your computers can print on a shared printer connected anywhere in the house.

The Linksys-Cisco WRT54GL offers great performance and ease of use -- plus Linux compatibility. See it in detail: front and rear.
Once your computers are connected to the Router and the Internet, they can communicate with each other too, sharing resources and files. All your computers can print on a shared printer connected anywhere in the house. And your computers can share all kinds of files -- music, digital pictures, and documents. Keep all your digital music on one computer, and listen to it anywhere in the house. Organize all of your family's digital pictures in one place, to simplify finding the ones you want, and easing backup to CD-R. Utilize extra free space on one computer when another's hard drive starts to fill up.
The new push button setup feature makes it easy to configure your wireless devices. Just push the button on the router and on your other SecureEasySetup-enabled wireless device to automatically create an encryption-secured wireless connection. TKIP and AES protects your data and privacy with up to 128-bit industrial-strength encryption. The Router can serve as a DHCP Server, has a powerful SPI firewall to protect your PCs against intruders and most known Internet attacks, supports VPN pass-through, and can be configured to filter internal users' access to the Internet. Advanced configuration is a snap with the web browser-based interface.

However, I must say that if you want to use this router to share data (photo, music and videos) through a media server to you PS3, the transfer rate is not great, thus causing your movie to stop randomly until the router can manage the transfer. This problem is normal, the router being of the G generation (versus the N). But overall, this is a great product and I would recommend it to anyone.
A while ago, my friend spent almost $100 on a wireless adapter for his X-Box 360, while I spent $70 on this router, and hooked up my X-Box 360, PS3 (PS3 Wireless is garbage...), TV, and a computer (used as a media center)... Jokes on him, thanks to "Client Bridge Mode" on the DD-WRT firmware. In case anyone is wondering, the DD-WRT flash also allows you to use the WAN port as an additional LAN port, so you can now hook up 5 items to it while in "Client Bridge Mode", instead of 4.
All-in-all... This is a buy that is definitely worth it. All 3 routers are still working nearly flawlessly, with 2 of them being in constant use for nearly a year.
It does all I need it to do (given that DD-WRT was developed first and foremost for this specific device, with limitless capabilities)
To upgrade its performance and feature-set, I immediately replaced the firmware with the Open Source Tomato firmware. This takes 5 minutes, is very easy to do, and instantly modernizes the router, giving the user a lot more control and more features (BTW which were already very good). For more info: [...]

To sum up: The router is excellent value for its affordable price. A solid little workhorse!

Still using it in 2016. Feel bad it has not stopped working and I don't have an excuse to buy a new one.Published 8 days ago by Amazon Customer
This is a good, reliable router. It gives good coverage and it is easily configurable. An added bonus is the availability of many alternate firmware loads like dd-wrt.Published 19 days ago by Amazon Customer
