Which router should I choose: Linksys WRT54GS or WRT54G2?

I have an old Linksys Wireless-B router, which has been great, but it's time to change to Wireless-G technology, so I decided to go with a Linksys in the WRT54G series.

But I'm confused as to which one buy. This is for a house with a few computers (more like a home-office), all running Windows

Should I go with the blue WRT54GS one, or the next generation WRT54G2? I've heard a lot of good things about the first one, but I understand the second one is a most recent one. Which one would be better? What about other options, such as the WRT54G or WRT54GL?


PS. I've read something about some issues with the newest versions (v8) of the WRT54GS, is this true?
PSS. What about compatibility issues in the WRT54G2?

B is old as well as the G. If you upgrade router now, then N mode is one. Linksys products are good.

Which Linksys N routers would you recommend?

If I still decide to go with G, which of the above will be better?

Thanks Punky.

I ended up buying the WRT54GS. Working great so far!
