    you guys might of noticed earyler i had problems upgrading firmwares i dont know what i was doing wrong but i did everything over again and the firmware upgraded fine, also someone told me that the WRT54G has 32 megs of memory like the GS but that its locked? is there any truth here? and if it is, has it been unlocked with firmware?

    Firmware won't do it because not all WRT54G's have 32MB of RAM. In fact, most don't. There are only a select few which do have the extra RAM of the GS. You must make sure that you have one of these versions before attempting any sort of upgrade to unlock it. Read this site very carefully: http://blog.waja.info/?q=node/39

    Also, if you find that you do have one of the moddable versions, type all of those commands listed into the command prompt at once before sending them. This is what I did and it worked well. So, you'd type:

    Code:
    nvram set sdram_init=0x0008
    nvram set sdram_ncdl=0x0000
    nvram commit
    reboot
    You put these lines into the diagnostic code box and press the command button. Then wait for few seconds while your router (hopefully) reboots itself. Then you can check the RAM by typing free into the command box and running it. You'll probably have to open the command page again after doing this, however.

    I just noticed that the site cuts off some of the code I posted unless you expand it. Make sure you get the last line ;)

    You have to have the specific memory modules mentioned on that website. They end in 7T. I know that some version 2's have this, but I'm not sure about later versions. I know earlier versions do not have this configuration.

    EDIT: To make sure you have to physically open your router and look at the chips inside. There's no way to know short of doing this...and it will void your warranty (as if 99% of people here haven't already voided their warranties anyway ;) ).
