WRT54GL vs WRT54Gv5 vs WRT54Gv1-4


Recommended Posts

Ok, I'm about to buy a new router and need guidelines. I've seen that most people here suggest the Linksys router WRT54G(L) but I haven't seen much about WICH linksys WRT54G(L) router to get.

This is what I know so far, the WRT54G router of version 5 does not allow custom firmware as it isn't based on Linux. However, later official firmware seems to work good with bittorrent and uTorrent in general. The WRT54G of a version 1-4 allows custom firmware, WRT54GL does aswell.

So, the question would actually turn to: Is it better with custom firmware or does the official update to WRT54Gv5 work well enough? I have the possibilty to buy both the WRT54GL and WRT54Gv5 but I don't know about the WRT54G pre5, maybe it's the same as WRT54GL only slightly cheaper?

Well, that's about it, sorry if this is posted in the wrong forum or if it has been asked/answered before, but I've used the search function extensively without success.

Thanks in advance!

Wow, quick reply there, thanks Firon.

I was getting a different image from the v5, seemed like it was "fixed" and worked well with BT and uT. But well, now that you put it that way I guess I'll go for the WRT54GL :). It also nice to have the customization options Linux can give.
