Just an aside - for anyone with ADSL who wants
a similar product, don't get the Linksys WAG54G!
It's a WRT54g with built-in ADSL modem. Most of the
complaints Justin has with NetGear also apply to it,
including lack of an open firmware.
I've had no end of problems with wireless and ADSL
drop-outs, and firmware bugs, such as unreliable port
forwarding and NAT table exhaustion.
The Linksys pure ethernet routers are supposed to be fine.
But don't assume that the same applies to all their products.
