Linksys Router WRT54GL - DANGER!

Do you have an old(er) Linksys router model WRT54GL? If yes please read on.

Cisco is the name of the company behind Linksys networking equipment; they had to admit that the WRT54GL is not safe. Here is a quote from an email that Linksys wrote to The Register, an IT blog.
“Following our assessment of information recently released by DefenseCode, we have confirmed a vulnerability in the Linksys WRT54GL home router. At this point, no other Linksys products appear to be impacted."

This router model is so old that I would anyway recommend to upgrade to a new router.

Please choose another brand instead of Linksys. I have only good experiences with routers from Netgear for example.

As usual I welcome comments and suggestions right here in the blog. Thank you in advance.
