    Ok so I know it's possible to do a memory upgrade from 16MB to 32MB on the v3 series of the WRT54G routers.

    Will post link in a second, can't find it in the 20 or so tabs I have open right now.

    From what I can gather.

    128M(8Mx16) - HY5DU281622ET - Stock memory module
    256M(16Mx16) - HY5DU561622CT - Upgradeable chip

    Now my question is, can the router accept a 64MB chip, the;

    512M(32Mx16) - HY5DU121622LT

    I looked at the pin configuration (will take a more closer look in a second) and they appear to be identical.

    Anyone tried upgrading there WRT54G to 64MB of RAM? I wonder if there is a 1024M chip out there, back to researching. Just wanted to get this post up, see if anyone else has tried it yet.

    Been doing some more searching and I can't seem to find those chips on anything, even though I'm still not even 100% for sure that the router will even recognize that much much.

    I mean I know it will recognize the 32MB because thats the same chips on the GS versions, so thats been proven to work. I even think a few have successfully soldered a 256M(16Mx16) module onto the PCB and it work.

    Having a hard time trying to track down the 512M(32Mx16) chips. Can't seem to find them anywhere.

    I "think" they are on the 256MB SO-DIMM memory modules, but having 2 x 256MB of memory in a notebook during that time apparently must have been pretty uncommon.
