I am looking for a Wi-Fi router that to replace my old Linksys WRT54G router that I have been using for about a decade or so. The problem with this router is that whenever I connect all my 5 wireless devices on the Wi-Fi network, it loses connectivity. I have re-flashed the firmware for the second time this year already only for it to work for a couple of days or a month and it needs to be re-flashed again. I am thinking of purchasing the new WRT54GL router but also need something with a better Wi-Fi technology than G. Will my smartphones and Chromecast take advantage of G? Can someone recommend a DD-WRT wireless router that will work correctly with my devices but is under $100?
