does it ever work through the router? What kind of internet ISP do you have? (DSL, cable, etc) What I had to do with my DSL was hook my DSL model to one of the "computer" switch p orts (1-5) on my router, not through the port marked "internet" on my wrt54G. Your router may have a similar problem.

My WRT54GS has never let me down. I've had it for....well since Aug 2004.

But since you just want a WIRED router, then you have no need for a WRT54G or GS, I'd send yah my BEFSR41 for free if I could only find it. I've had THAT since 2001 and its NEVER once given me an issue, even when it was in a stack with a modem and a VoIP router on it and got quite hot.

If your current one is giving you problems, it'll probably do it again, you might as well go for a linksys. You can probably get a BEFSR41 on eBay for CHEAP.

Lynksys seems not to like Mac...wirelessly anyway.

I found that both the lynksys routers at my place and my grandparents have been troublesom for my Mac to connect wirelessly while running the Mac OS. By cable is fine.

I still stand by linksys, aside from this I haven't had any problems with it. Luckily I got XP on the Mac

I dont know guys I have installed many customers with linksys that burned out or were DOA. I just got back my N class linksys that I had in for service. I have had great luck with belkins and netgear.

WOW. I'm anpther one that hadn't had any problem with mine. Ran it nearly 7 years and now Tallbump is putting it to work.

Linksys wireless routers are another issue all together. Almost everyone I know with one has had problems.
