The T-mobile WRT54G is similar to the WRT54GL I believe, and it's 
used for their T-mobile Hotspot at Home product.  Basically it's a 
modified Linksys router that prioritizes UMA traffic.  UMA is 
basically Cellular over WiFi.  Some of T-mobile's phones with WiFi 
support UMA (such as several of their Blackberry Models) and when 
you're not in a coverage area you can use WiFi basically as a cell 
site.  They offer unlimited WiFi calling for a cheap price (like 10$ 
a month, something along those lines) too for those that want it.

If it were me, I'd just go seeking out the GL model routers 
instead.  However, Buffalo Technology will soon be selling in the 
states again and they make a router that supports DD-WRT (and a lot 
of the other custom firmwares) and are extremely well priced.  Back 
in their hey-day (before they were sued by CSIRO), they were probably 
the best product money could buy.
