WRT54G Still Rocks

I have a 7-year-old Linksys WRT54G, running Tomato firmware, which cost $50. Besides the usual routing functions, it has:

WOL
VPN server (TAP bridge to other house WRT54G on same subnet)
QoS
Access restriction
Wireless filter
Bandwidth monitoring
Dynamic DNS and OpenDNS updating

I have the following devices on it:

Its predecessor router, used as an unmanaged switch
Wired PC
HTPC
Thermostat
2 VOIP adapters
Xbox
TiVo
Various wireless devices - PC, printer, smartphone, iPod, tablets

All this works great and zero maintenance. Now I only have G wifi and no gigabit, but is perfectly adequate for our household needs. For the price and power consumption I don't see the need for an alternative.
