if i cant get my netgear router working tommorow i am going to be returning it. as far as deals go i can get a decent deal on a D-link 524 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16833127143) and i will prolly get the D link pci card. or i can get the Linksys Wrt54g router(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16833124010) and probably get the linksys card to go with it. i can get the dlink and card for 40 after rebates.. or the linksys for 80 after rebates.. any experiences with any of these? does anyone know anything about the alternative firmware and if that is any good? would i be better off getting the linksys even thought it will be twice as much?
