Re: [Cable] Which router to buy for DCM 476 modem?

I would strongly advise against the wrt54gl. It's at it's end-of-life cycle and really outdated. It's 7 years old. I don't think anyone should buy the wrt5gl anymore.

although 54mbps is "enough" for 1 wireless computer, you have to factor in real-world performance - it drops due to interference and distance. Never hurts to have more bandwidth. No dual-band, cpu is slower, ram is getting limited.

For a similar price, you can find budget N routers that does more than the WRT54GL and just as stable. netgear and asus are some worthy mentions. there's a few older thread around with more detailed discussions that you can search into.
