You can google for lots of info, but the main result is this - rock solid router performance. Set it and forget it.

But you can also customize to your heart's content - read up on it.

I have an older WL-500G v2 running flawlessly for several years now. It just works Smilie

One thing Shibby notes on these is that v114 and newer is a requirement for installation. What are the chances of ending up with an unsupported version?

I bought this last time when it was on sale for $10 AR. For the love of god, I couldn't get the router to recovery mode to flash tomato. Numerous attempts lead no where Frown

No, v114 refers to the version of Shibby's Tomato build. I.e., you must download v114 or newer from his website; you can't use an ancient Tomato build on it.

Good deal. I picked up one of these for $10 a while ago -- thanks to this post for alerting me to DD-WRT/Tomato support; should be fun to mess around with it.

Haven't used it in a long while, but I remember having a little trouble getting it to connect to the internet -- it wasn't quite plug & play for me as most routers are.

More expensive routers exist for a reason, but the performance/range is probably acceptable for a smaller place.

This router is very stable with Tomato.

Low-end routers like this have some uses.

1) As a backup router. I got one of these the last time it was $5 AR, loaded Tomato, configured it, and left it at my parents' place. If their main router ever goes belly-up, they can just pull this out of the drawer and plug it in. No need for me to walk them over the cell phone (since the home phone is VoIP, they'd lose that, too, if the router goes kaput) through the process of buying and configuring a new router. I figure it oughta be able to tide them over for a few months until the next time I fly out there. Kinda like having a spare tire in the trunk of the car, and for $5, that's a very low price for peace of mind.

2) As a client bridge. My SiliconDust tuner has to be placed in a certain location for the antenna reception, but my Ethernet network doesn't extend there. So I have a cheap router (this time running DD-WRT, but Tomato works too) as a client bridge to link the tuner to the rest of my network. As a bonus, that also enables Wake-on-LAN for my HTPC. The HTPC has WiFi of its own, but WoWLAN, even with Intel WiFi, is not reliable and comes with a host of problems, so it's far better to do wired WoL through the client bridge.

Got a couple of these for $5 last year on separate deals. Supports dd-wrt and tomato (Shibby, my preference) just fine. Can't beat it for $5.
