Finding a Non-V4 WRT54GS

    All I can seem to find at my local stores are the V4s of the WRT54GSs. Any suggestion on how to find a V3 (the older the better) without paying $90+?

    I had very little luck with this. Some of the stores that do less business on these items tend to have the older routers. By far the best way to find versions 1 - 3 is ebay. If the item doesn't say what version, sometimes you can tell by the picture or ask the seller for a serial number.

    I ending up taking the v4 I acidentially purchased and exchanging it for a v2.1 I found on the very back of the shelf.

    In the future I'll have to try ebay, thanks.

    sometimes you can find a "broken" wrt on ebay and usually you can fix it.

    Don't know where you're at, but if you're in the US, may want to try your local WalMart. I found a v3 yesterday at one.

    I am having the same problem. Parental Controls will not work on a WRT54GS v4 and Linksys says to exchange it for a v3 or earlier. Great if you can find one. What serial number would a v3 or earlier have on the box (so I can also try the WalMart route...)
