But to allow hobbyists to continue to hack on these device, Linksys has released the WRT54GL. This is the same as version 4 of the WRT54GS.
I can understand why Linksys would want to do this. I am sure that moving to the VxWorks based device will save them money, especially for such a high volume product. Also leaving a "hackable" device is pretty good will for the technically savvy consumer.
