Well my new router has shown up. I decided to go with the Linux friendly version of my previous one. Even though I was able to install it on the 54G, it was not optimal as it didn't have enough memory. My new router is the WRT54GL. L is for linux :)
So right now I am killing time as the flash program is installing the new ROM for it. Of course I spent about an hour on it, but most was troubleshooting why my stupid laptop would not connect to teh schminternet via wire or wireless. So hopefully I will be done in the next 5 minutes or so.
