Another thing if you do go Linksys get a 54GL L= Linux.
You can mod it to use a third party Firmware and its nearly impossible to kill.
I've set up 54GL in the past and I'll tell you I couldn't crash it If i wanted to.
(Trying to remember the Third Party Firmware I installed.)

Hopefully I'll remember the Firmware I did install give me some time.
Or if someone else can figure it out.

I have heard of people crashing that router on the 3d party firmware.

I still say the 4300 is better, but thats my opinion. I don't feel that loading a router with third party firmware isn't something that everyone is willing to do especially if they have problems then they are out of a router. I have never owned a linksys router so i really cant comment on them.

I put the 4300 through a modest stress test and it performed exceedingly well. The wireless is no worse than my old Linksys WRT54g, either.

It sounds like the Linksys hardware just isn't up to snuff. Earlier versions seem to be fine, but if you track the changes you'll notice that with each new version of the router released, the on-board RAM is decreased. It's like they're cutting down so that the router performs only its essential tasks.

From what I've read, the Linksys version of the 4300, some form of gaming router, performs worse than the 4300 as well. My only complaint with the 4300 is that it runs pretty hot - but that may be indicative of the faster hardware that's in it.
