On November 18th 2002, a star was born. Linksys launched the Linux-based WRT54G Wireless Router, which would go on to become the world’s best selling wireless router – shipping nearly 50 million routers. As the first wireless G router, the WRT54G represented a true technological breakthrough.
In addition to reliable hardware performance, the customizable firmware gave router enthusiasts the ability to create features and share them with other fans.
Long before the rise of Twitter and Facebook, the WRT virtual community was born!
Happy 12th Birthday WRT54G Wireless Router and thanks for connecting businesses, gamers, techies, and every day folks to the Internet for over 12 years.
