My System Specs

I don't think this thing has ever dropped the connection from my modem except for the one time my internet service was actually down.

I love my WRT54GL. Never an issue ever. I still run the stock Linksys software/firmware and have never had an issue compared to the D-Link/Netgear routers I have tried.
