    Hey,

    I just set my CPU on my WRT54G to 240.. Is there a command I can use to verify what the CPU is actually set as?

    And will it clock itself back down after firmware upgrade or router reboot?

    thanks

    BTW... this is the command if anyone is interested

    nvram set clkfreq=240
    nvram commit

    nvram show | grep clkfreq

    i did "nvram show | grep clkfreq" and "clkfreq=216" was returned to me.

    what is the advantage of going with a 240MHz clock?

    are there any heating/stability issues?

    o yeah, using the Rupan HyperWRT 2.1b1 / 4.20.7 firmware on a WRT54G 3.0.

    You do realize that if your router doesn't like 240, then it bricked.

    ok, then why would someone risk BRICKING their router just to hit 240MHz with it?

    so far i've read risks only, and no rewards.

    also, didnt a beta firmware overclock all routers to 240 mhz? (or at least the newer WRT54G and gs models)
