what is the difference between the dlink DL524 and linksys WRT54G router?
i know that linksys is router with 4 port switch and access point, what about dlink?
i had used linksys wireless router before and can share printer file and internet, what about dlink, can it do the same thing too?

If there is not a huge price difference, I would stick with the Linksys router.
People, whom I know, who work for ISPs (DSL and cable) annecdotally report far few modem compatibility problems with Linksys routers than with any other brand.
Vendors, whom I know, annectdotally report far fewer returns for Linksys routers than any other brand.

Both the Dlink DL 524 and Linksys WRT54G have common features:
But the Linksys WRT54G has 1 feature the Dlink DL 524 doesnt:
-ADSL Modem Built-In

The WRT54G has been updated several times over the years, and it comes with either the DSL or Cable modem feature.
I've never used/heard of BLANC routers, so I dont have any idea about them.
The Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router
is really three devices in one box. First, there's the Wireless Access Point, which lets you connect Wireless-G or Wireless-B devices to the network. There's also a built-in 4-port full-duplex 10/100 Switch to connect your wired-Ethernet devices. Connect four PCs directly, or daisy-chain out to more hubs and switches to create as big a network as you need. Finally, the Router function ties it all together and lets your whole network share a high-speed cable or DSL Internet connection. To protect your data and privacy, the Wireless-G Broadband Router can encrypt all wireless transmissions. The Router can serve as a DHCP Server, has NAT technology to protect against Internet intruders, supports VPN pass-through, and can be configured to filter internal users' access to the Internet. Configuration is a snap with the web browser-based configuration utility.

Do NOT GET THE D-LINK. It Sucks big time and rarely works. It's slow, prone to failures and is not (at this time) supported by D-Link UK.

I agree with NevTheTech. I recommended a friend to buy the Dlink 524 and thought it would be normal to set up. We can’t even get into that router!! I have a thread on it just after this one….
