Bottom line

The Linksys WRT54GL is a compact unit that uses the older wireless-G technology. It can be a good choice if your laptops and desktops aren't compatible with newer wireless standards such as wireless-N or wireless-AC, and you don't want to upgrade them or you don't mind sacrificing some speed to save money. The venerable WRT54G-series router is revered by tons of owners at Amazon.com and Newegg.com for its "hackability."

Ease of use

Works straight out of the box. Reviews say this wireless-G router is reliable, easy to set up and secure. The series has been on the market for years, and users say the WRT54GL works fine from day one.
