Because they lack 802.11n, powerline networking, 5.8 GHz radios and gigabit Ethernet connections, these routers are no longer very popular for state of the art networks. However, some models remain extremely useful for those using third-party firmware, which is necessary to make full use of the radio power or other hardware capabilities these routers have. See third party firmware and compatibility notes for each model. Models that look identical and vary only by one minor version number are often quite different, so make note of the exact minor version. The original WRT54G was first released in December 2002. It has a 4+1 port network switch (the Internet/WAN port is part of the same internal network switch, but on a different VLAN). The devices have two removable antennas connected through Reverse Polarity TNC connectors. The WRT54GC router is an exception and has an internal antenna with optional external antenna. As a cost-cutting measure, the design of the latest version of the WRT54G no longer has...Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online.
