    Hi guys,
    Not sure if this is at all possible, but is there any sort of system command, either with linux or Windows that you can send to the router and it will return the firmware version and/or model of the router. We manage a bunch of Linksys routers, some new and some old, and its a bit of a hassle to always go through the Web Management. Some of the systems are purely non-graphical systems, so can't even access the Web Management software. I was reading that maybe using the RIP protocol can return some information about the router, but not quite sure how to implement it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    the version number of firmware should be in the top left hand bar of setup.

    Also version of WRT54G can checked by serial number:

    CDF5XXXX is version 2
    CDF4XXXX and lower are v1.1 or version 1"
    CDF1XXXX is version 1

    and also

    use this:

    I know I can go to the and get the information there, but thats the whole thing. I wanna know if there is a way by sending a command to which will return the firmware version and model number.
    I know just my do the arp -a , you can get the MAC address which identifies what type of router, was curious if something exists which returns firmware version and model
