    Hey guys, I'm about to sell my wrt54gsv4 router as I'm looking to updgrade to a new one that supports gigabit ethernet, wireless N and has a usb port as well as being able to run the mega build of dd-wrt.

    Does anyone have any recommendations? I'm not bothered what make it is as long as it does ALL of the above, cheers.

    I was just shipped a Asus WL-500gPV2 from Newegg.com and absolutely love it. 32 meg memory and 8 meg flash chip. Flashed yesterday morning with 21 meg free.

    LOL m8, did you read my first post? This router doesn't support Gigabit ethernet or wireless N

    OOPS.. Sorry. I read it too fast, thought you were saying it didn't have to support gigabit or N

    OK guys just an update, I sold my wrt54gsv4 + a flashed fonera for £70 & I got a v1 wrt350n for £60 instead......

    Once it arrives I'll flash it with the standard generic build of ddwrt - then try the mega build.

    I have a few tsop's lying around so I might increase the size of the rom - I'll try dumping it first with a usb jtag just incase anything goes wrong.

    There's one born every day! Can get a new WRT54G-TM posted from USA for less than that!

    yeah, but...

    you have to JTAG to the broadcomm chip and load a WRT54GL CFE before you flash. easy enough for some of us, incomprehensible to others.

    D-Link's DIR Routers.. UGGHHHH... Stay away from the devil..

    Grab yourself a Linksys WRT350N or WRT610N and you won't be disappointed at all!

    But it will not have a 300MHz CPU like the one found in the WRT350N.

    Well the wrt350n came today so I flashed it with dd-wrt mega v24 sp1 and all is fine, I then flashed it back to original firmware just to make sure it could go back ok if needed.

    I'll solder a pin header on to the jtag points later and dump the router with a usbjtag as it's faster than a serial jtag.

    Now I just need to figure out how to access usb and start a ftp server using the dd-wrt firmware - the original software works fine for ftp and media streaming.

    I did notice using tkip on wireless the internet connection is slow but if you change it to aes it's ok.

    HeHe I was referring to the sale/purchase by others of of the WRT54GSV4! It was a good trade for the 350N.
