I've already had an older Linksys router die randomly, now my WRT54G is dead too. It hasn't even been 2 months. The power dropped out for half a second and now it's fucked. The power led won't come on (except for what looks like bleed over from other leds) and every time you plug in the power random leds will light up. It doesn't matter what's pluged in, it will just light up random shit. Reset does nothing.
I'm buying a Buffalo router tomorrow. I've heard complaints about pretty much every router brand out there but I'm hoping this one wont blow as hard as Linksys. I'm debating whether to even dick around with their customer service to get a replacement that I can use as backup.
