I've run a WRT54G for years too. It's definitely the most reliable
Linux-based router I've used (counting four others). It's been "many 9s"
reliable for me, even without custom firmware. There are no doubt
zillions of these on the used equipment market, 'cause so many people
have "upgraded" over the years.
With the UPS covering the broadband modem/dialup box too you can often
stay connected to the weather radar when conditions outside get

Not only do I not know what's going on, but I wouldn't know what to do about it if I did.
