well im about to buy a wireless router tomorrow or so,so which kind should I get? whats the best?
Is this for a laptop or a PC?
PC basically im getting one so I can get on GGPO.
This one here is pretty good and inexpensive:
oops I meant wireless router,but that is nice though
I’m not familiar with the latest trends but back in april when I bought a router the Linksys WRT54GL was the router to get. I think it’s still the best router that you can get for your buck, plus it’s also open source so you can install DD-WRT on there which is much better than the default firmware. I personally have a Buffalo WHR-G54S because it was on sale at the time for 25 buck so it was the cheapest open source capable router at the time. It performs great but I think the linksys is your best bet.
EDIT: I’d also like to stress there’s a difference between the WRT54G and the WRT54GL. They cost about the same but the WRT54G is not open source compatible. You want the WRT54GL.
heh listen to Monte its what i intended to post if i wasnt so lazy.
i own the WRT54GL and its wonderful.
yeah im gonna go with the WRT54GL,lets just say I like to experiment with things.
edit:that avatar is tight
but yea that lifehacker guide is the one i used (i just got the router on friday) to upgrade and tinker with my WRT54GL so its all good
ps: all my access machines and access points are metal gear themed
So can you still flash the latest version of the wrt54g with the open source firmware?
^^ according to DD-WRT’s website of supported devices (clicky), it’s possible but with a few extra steps, I think. I’ve never flashed a newer WRT54G, though. I’ve mostly messed with the oollllllderrrrrrr versions, those were easier, obviously. =P
