Product Overview

Main Features
  • Wireless b/g Broadband Router with Wireless 802.11b/g Access Point and 4-port full-duplex 10/100 Switch
The Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router is really three devices in one box. First, there's 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. There's 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. 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 push button setup feature makes it easy to configure your wireless devices. Just push the button on the router and on your other Secure EasySetup-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.



With the Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router at the center of your home or office network, you can share a high-speed Internet connection, files, printers, and multi-player games with flexibility, speed, security and simplicity!



Features:

All-in-one Internet-sharing Router, 4-port Switch, and 54Mbps Wireless-G (802.11g) Access Point

Shares a single Internet connection and other resources with Ethernet wired and Wireless-G and -B devices

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very reliable device!I bought my WRT54GL (1.1) around 2008 and later I order one for my parents, sister and some of my friends has the same device.The router is good as it is but as most of you knows the good hardware is the best with one of the Linux based firmware, at least this is my experience. I used my router with the original firmware for one year as I was afraid to change it but then I took the time and I replaced the stock firmware with Brainslayer 14929 Mini build (v24-sp2 08/12/10).The WRT54GL with the above mentioned software is really a got solution and also you get many great new features. If you need good reliable wireless G router cool features thanks to DD-WRT and its community this is a very good device.I hope that some of the new Linksys device will get the same fame on one day.Cheers,Misi

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullI used to recommend these routers all the time, but I have had a couple of dozen users with problems with the firmware since Cisco took over. I love the router, but if you get a series of power flickers (even with a surge protector), the firmware will completely drop and need to be reloaded. I had my first couple of these in the days before Cisco, and they still work. I have users who have gone through 3 in 18 months. I just lost one the other day while putting it in place as an emergency stop gap. Ironically, the PIX 501 died, and while programming my backup WRT54G, the firmware died. You get a white page that says load firmware. Fortunately I had an old Linksys router from the pre-Cisco days to drop in place too. I think they have just gone to poor firmware chips, and I am looking for a different SOHO device now. The Netgear stuff is nice, but can be a pain for the initial setup. I am not a fan of D-Link, and all of their support is in India. I may have to experiment with the Negear stuff more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullI have used these for years with zero issues, save for the one time I had to call their support, and the "tech" on the other end was most likely reading from a manual or computer screen. So technically, I have had zero issues with the device itself as stated above.I use DD-WRT and will not go back to the default firmware anytime soon. It has made life so much easier when I need to adjust any router settings.I did upgrade to the Wirleless N version a while ago simply for faster speed on any of my wireless devices and have not had any issues.Highly recommend it to anybody searching for a wireless router. Best buy for the money IMHO.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullFantastic router for the price. I use these as wireless access points around my work-campus. You can flash these with OpenWRT, or Tomato, which makes my heart happy. I have found that Linksys makes remarkably stable products, but perhaps the fact that they are owned by Cisco may explain that. Highly, Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullThese are akin to the LaserJet III of the printer world. They worked, they were solid, they were dependable and they are no longer available.I still use one as strictly an access point for the Wireless segment off my firewall for guests who just want the internet. Sadly, it must be reset every couple of days for some reason - never important enough to delve into the way. Just reboot it and it is okay again.But for its time, this was the kingpin of wireless routers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullI first bought a WRT54G v5 some years back, I think it was 2004 or 2005. I still have the same device. It's been flashed with DD-WRT a few times and even some other firmwares. I've bricked it, brought it back to life. It still keeps on truckin' along! I currently, and have had for some years now, have this particular model and version of the WRT54G, running DD-WRT configured as a client bridge so that I can have my home network span the entire house without having to run cat6 everywhere. I have the second WRT54 unit I bought (a GS) also running DD-WRT and it's configured as an AP for my work network (until I can afford a WLAN controller).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullNot bad. Works with DD-WRT and OpenWRT as a low-cost alternative to Cisco equipment. With the firmware options available, it is just as functional as any B/G wireless access point out there. I have had to be very careful about matching firmware revisions to one another in multi-point installations. Contrary to the original hype around "hacking your router to 10 times its original output," you can't crank up the output to 251mw without signal instability. 100mw is about maximum. A good antenna makes all the difference, even at low power.P.S. I've had mixed results, depending on the environment. In an industrial environment that was prone to high amounts of RF noise, I found that of 3COM, Linksys, and Cisco, only the Cisco worked 100% of the time without any "tweaking."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullThis is a terrific product. If anyone has one go bad, send it back. I have had this router for over a year and it works flawlessly. Never drops a connection (I have 3 laptops and a desktop connected wirelessly) - I wish I could say the same about my ISP. Flash with DD-WRT and declare your setup a victory.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullAt the time, it was the most popular 802.11G router. Plenty of performance and features. Run DD-WRT firmware on it and you've got yourself a $500+ router (and I would give it a 5 star rating).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullThese devices are very old at this point in time, but man are they rock solid. With 10/100 wired ports and G wifi speed there is no doubt that these are no longer the way to go. However, there is no argument of the reliability of these little devices. The ability to run the DD-WRT open source firmware made them even more valuable. Adding many more custom features no included with the original firmware. This great router has lasted a long time, and we only now have several that are being moved on into the tech afterlife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from UnreliableI installed this router about a month ago. To date I have had to reinstall it twice and reboot it 4 or 5 times. When it's on it works great but it is so irritating that I have to keep doing this over and over again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullAll of the Linksys devices made since 2008 have had some issue or another. this is one of their better products but it is still plagued with issues. I found that using the dd-wrt firmware on this device fixes most of the issues. You can get this at www.dd-wrt.com but be aware this will void you warrant. It does how ever unlocks the router to a business grade device so in my eyes its a far trade off but not for everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullI have been using this router for the last 6 years in my home office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullExcellent router. Reliable and durable. For a home user the user interface for setup is preety straight forward and there is nothing more you will need. If you are an IT then chances are you already flashed DD-WRT or Tomato or COOPA or any other firmware of your choice. After that of course the experience gets enhanced, along with the features that get added.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullI am not a fan of wireless broadband routers. Most tend to overheat and have problems. That being said, I have to agree with others regarding this product. Linksys has a solid performer in the WRT54g. Netgear, D-Link, and others simply cannot compete for durability and ease of use. Kudos to Linksys for one of the best consumer broadband products on the market.

They are starting to show their age, but can be given new life by installing dd-wrt or OpenWrt, if you're looking for more advanced features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullGreat little router, manages my home network of about 14-15 PCs (about 10 of which are used by individuals via wireless). I use the Tomato firmware on mine. However, its wireless radio seems to be deteriorating and crashing/dropping connections. "Noise floor" keeps getting higher and higher. Definitely not built to last, but adding a dedicated access point makes this an excellent broadband router with a fast CPU and plenty of memory.

But again, its well over 10 years old and still works amazing, I can play xbox online AND stream media on a smart tv at the same time with no issues. Very impressed my dinosaur has lasted this long and still performs as well as it does. Never had range issues, could share internet with people in my apartment complex no problem and worked great in a 2 story house with a basement, with router on top floor.

The dang thing was fried too, so i though it might be the surge protector, frying it, wasn't the case. Then i returned another one recently and just got the Dlink Gaming router. Had no issues at all with it. Maybe its my luck but i wont ever buy a Linksys for home use again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullIt has long been my opinion that the WRT54g series is the highest quality non-corporate level networking device you could possibly buy, with a catch. In my experience nearly all firmware/drivers from companies who's names start with L (linksys, logitech mainly) is crap. Before I switched mine over to DD-WRT it was the second most unstable PoS device I've ever used, only surpassed by the Linksys WCG200 which doesn't even have an adequate quality cable modem in it. Since switching it there is only glory, enough features to fill the hole in the Ozone layer and more stable than that superhero that could turn to steel (the russian one, not ironman)All in all, if I was to set up an office from scratch the WRT54g would be at the top of my list so long as I could put DD-WRT on them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullThe Linksys WRT54G and WRT54GS routers have been the number one most popular wireless router devices available for the past few years. So this begs the question why Cisco would snatch defeat from the jaws of victory by needlessly changing an almost perfect product. The fact is that versions 1 -4 of the G and the GS (with Speedboost) versions of this router were fantastic. Those earlier routers run a flexible and powerful Linux based firmware that has been perfected for the past few years a numerous updates and tweaks. However, the earlier WRT54G product has now been replaced with a less powerful wireless product (version 5) that has had its onboard flash RAM chopped in half from 4MB to 2MB and its system RAM cut from 16MB to 8MB. Instead of the flexible, reliable and powerful Linux firmware the new WRT54G version 5 routers run the licensed VxWorks firmware instead. There is nothing wrong with using VxWorks and over time Cisco will probably work out the bugs but for now the newest wireless routers are not reliable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullIt would get 5 stars if it came per-loaded with DD-WRT. I bought this router while in college. It was an upgrade from my flaky D-Link Router. Used it with the original firmware until I discovered DD-WRT. Makes a world of a difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullThese were my go-to routers for many years. I would dump them and load DD-WRT on them. making a $60 router into a $600 router with all the bells and whistles. The hardware was near bulletproof. There were times where I would brick one and had to short a few pins to get it running, but every single one of them are still functional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullI use of these with the tomatoes OS on it; unfortunately Linksys discontinued the broadcom/linux based chipset they were using (I think versions 1-4 had it). That tomatoes OS takes this to a near enterprise router, the easy setup button can be programmed, the light colors can be changed, QoS functions, there is data mapped to graphs, the device can be used as a wifi scanner etc. It literally becomes a enterprise grade device on home based hardware. After loading tomatoes I have had no issues and can even telnet into it if I want. Great OS for a cool device, I wish they wouldn;t have gone back to proprietary like they did. Their FW/OS sucks on this device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullLinksys WRT54G - the IRON HORSE. A legend/myth has it that this is the best wireless router for your buck on the consumer level. I have had this installed at numerous client's homes and have had no issues rather than maybe having to reboot it every once in a while.. usually due to a problem btween the router and the modem (usually the modem chokes and causes the router to choke as well.. not sure why). This is what I'd call a STANDARD wifi tool. PLUS there are many alternate firmwares for this particular model if you like modding routers. My buddy installed a 50mm fan on the top of his and it ran like a champ. Highly reliable, dependable.. wont break even if you throw it off a cliff into some rocks (maybe not... but close). I love em.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullHad it for close to 6 years before it went the way of the Dodo. Excellent router for the money. I have thought about attempting to revive it with DD WRT, but haven't made the time to play with it yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullI have to give this one five stars. This router lasted with me for 9 years including at least five moves! It finally died on me this year after somebody didn't pack it well, er at all and it got smushed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullI've had one of these for over 4 years and it has always worked like a champ. The range was even good enough that I could share the wireless signal with my in-laws next door. I have tried newer Belkin and Linksys devices, but none of them seem to live up to their respective hype, and I wind up going back to my 54G.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullThis product works great. I used it for years (version 1) and one day after it died (as all technology eventually does) I went out and bought a new one (which I still have). I especially like the ability to replace the antennae for stronger signal reception.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullThis router and the ability to install OpenWRT, DD-WRT, or Tomato along with its inexpensive price are great. I would strongly recommend it for a small business or home network, but if you need absolute reliability in an environment that has some type of interference then you are best off with an enterprise level product like the actual Cisco routers and access points.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullGreat device, absolutely love it. had to knock off 1 point though, cause mine crapped out about 2 months after setting it up. Still dont know what happened exactly, but the firmware completely flaked, to the point where i was unable to reload it. Fortunately after an hour on chat with a rep, they shipped me a new one. So at least their warranty coverage is decent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullI would say this is a sub par product at best. Once you have used anything in the Cisco or Ruckus product line you will rate this poorly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullI've been running one of these for probably about 2 years now and haven't had to reconfigure it once since I've put it in place.It's easy to manage interface and very reliable uptime makes it an awesome investment although most people will be shooting for the N's nowadays, but if you are wanting a reliable cheaper router - this is the one to get!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullGood little router. I'm running the micro version of DD-WRT on it. Recently changed it from a router to a repeater to extend the range on my new E3000.
Date published: 2012-08-22T00:00:00-04:00
Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullPurchased 2 of them in order to extend a Wireless network over 2 locations about 4 years ago. Used dd-wrt to set them up as Point to Point extenders and works an absolute treat. Found them to be a little flaky if a virtual adapter is added to enable both Extender and AP, so just stuck with a separate AP to allow wireless at the remote location.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullI still have one of these plugging away. The DD-WRT firmware enhances the hardware a little and you will get a little more life out of it.
