Misleading...v5 is not the old WRT54G

Linksys WRT54G Wireless-G Broadband Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g
Linksys WRT54G Wireless-G Broadband Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g

Pros: Easy set up

Cons: v5 doesn't work with DSL. Made my 3 mBit DSL feel like dialup and reqularly locked up requiring a recycle. Linksys support regularly acknowledged this is a known issue but kept giving me the run around about return/exchange. Spent hours on the phone trying to negotiate an exchange for older version and finally gave up.

Overall Review: Like another reviewer, I researched this product before buying and read a lot of great things bout this product, but the version 5 (v5) product is NOT the same. Less ram and different OS. It is misleading to market this product with the same name as earlier versions.
