    As if it's not confusing already:

    I have the following router:

    The box says : WRT54GS

    The IC label (below the FCC) on the bottom of the router says: 38391-WRT54GV2 (NOT WRT54GSV2)

    The serial #: CGN10D....etc ( indicates a version 1 WRT54GS router!!! )

    What my router make and version number ?

    Your solid advice is appreciated . I'm trying to upgrade the firmware as it's still on v2.07.1 and i need to know what is the version (and now the model) to do that.

    Thanks in advance.

    Its a gsv1.0 -- what it says on the box means nothing. go by the serial number

    How about that WRT54GV2 on the bottom of the router ? ( IC tag below the FCC tag) , it indicates a 'G' - not GS -, version 2 -not version 1- router.

    I just noticed that the latest firmware version for WRT54GS is the same for all versions. I just upgraded and all went fine.

    Thanks for the advice.

    The WRT54G V2 and WRT54GS V1 have exactly the same wireless hardware. For the FCC, they only send the WRT54G V2. That explains these FCC stickers on the WRT54GS V1.
