    I have a WRT54GS V4 with the tomato firmware 1.28 and i would like to know how to overclock it. I dont have a heatsink or a custom fan so i just want to overclock it as much as possible without damaging it.

    Hi,

    use following commands with a SSH connection:
    Code:
    #show currently cpu speed
    grep MIPS /proc/cpuinfo
    cat /proc/cpuinfo
    
    #to overclock
    nvram set clkfreq=250
    nvram commit
    reboot
    
    #should be stable
    206, 216, 217, 225, 238 and 250


    one advice if you set the cpu on 250mhz... use an active fan or cooler on the top of the router :)

    please note guys that overclocking the unit has a downfall. you can brick your router
