I am using Windows XP and have 3 computers in the household, i am wanting to play games via lan using a router(access point) I am a noob i am new to wireless and i need help

Can you please tell me what is better to get

The WRT54G v4,v5 or WRT54GL v4,v5

Please post the advantages, disavantages and differences, Why would it be better for me to get the model that is best, I have read that i need to stay away from v5 is that true. Also can you post also what the distance of the range they go of the one you think i should get.

Please Help me. I want to buy a linksys access point soon(router)

A link for each router:
http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c...FVisitorWrapper
http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c...FVisitorWrapper

Generally you can't specify which revision (version) you will get.

An access point is an thing that plugs into your router to provide wireless access. Since these routers have wireless built in, you won't need an access point.

Advantages for what? The routers are very similar and I didn't see any differences that would matter much to the average user.

Since you have the links, and you've read elsewhere - why not share that with us so we can see what they're saying?
