The Linksys WRT54G2 router is now discontinued.

Reviews for both porducts can be found on here:
Reviews | Linksys WRT54G2 Wireless-G Broadband Router (WRT54G2-UK)
Reviews | Linksys WRT54GL 54Mbps Broadband Wireless-G Linux Router (WRT54GL-UK)

If you're going to buy one then I would get the Linksys WRT54GL as it is still current. It also has good reviews according to Broadband Buyer. I have worked on these before and I didnt have a problem with it. Good pieces of kit tbh.

Might want to re-consider that. With more and more wireless devices supporting 802.11n, might want to look into a router that supports wireless N (and possibly with gigabit ethernet for any hardwired devices that may support it as well).
