At PKR5400, it is expensive than that available at Beliscity... if Beliscity actually has it.

Ruhaan, do you still want it? I have sourced it but it will take about a month to arrive. it has 2 years limited warranty.

I will most likely be ordering WRT54GL so if you want it, do tell me well in time so I can tell the source to order more than one unit.

Asad to make it even more great install DD WRT on it it will be awesome it will bring alot of features to ur router


#14

DD WRT? Not now. It is working fine for now. I might try it in the coming days.

However, why DD WRT? Why not Tomato or OpenWRT?

DD WRT has alot of features accordin to me at least but if u want u can install other firmwares as well

but DDWRT sepcifically coz it solves the torrent problem that the WRT54GL has read abt it here

Good. Default firmware might have problems with P2P softwares. I already restarted the device once. I might have to upgrade to an OpenSource firmware sooner than I previously thought.

Does it specifies which particular Linksys firmware number has issues with torrents?

it does not specify that but it does say that linksys has not released a fix yet which could mean that the problem could persist in all the firmwares released by linksys for the WRT54GL


#18

I will try either of the firmwares soon.
