    as the name title suggests realy. Ive been reading and it seems that tofu and thibor have merged firmwares (or am i reading it wrong) and now ive gotten confused as to which one i need for my WRT54G V2.2

    Just to clarify - they've merged changes from the base Linksys firmware. The base, however, is still different between G and GS models. Tofu uses the G base while Thibor builds on the GS base.

    Complicating the issue is that v3 and v4 G hardware can also run Thibor firmware turning them into GS devices.

    Thibor, so you mean that I can run your firmware on my WRT54G v2 and have the same capabilities as a GS?

    Wow, that's pretty cool. thanks for the info. I really appreciate the effort you and all the others who code the firmware. I love using your firmware for my GS right now, but I'm selling it because I don't need it. I bought a G v2 and am waiting for it to arrive.

    Thanks again for all your hard work!

    that's right, the only advantage of mine is speedbooster. aside from that, they are identical in appearance and behaviour

    Ive recently looked into the turning my G into a GS. There is a detailed guide in this forum but make sure you read it as its not just a case of loading a new firmware. Couple of other bits need to be done. you also need a GS/Afterburner compatible client to take advantage of the speed.

    Although I did read that if you have a WPC54G you can just use the Microsoft Drivers to enable afterburner on this normally non GS card but not actually seen anything to backup this claim.

    I think the upgrade could be done on WRT54G from version 2.0 to 4.0

    For Version 4.0 no extra configuration needed.

    For version 2.0 to Version 3.1 look in the guide for the extra configuration.

    for version 1.0 to 1.1 it is not supported so use Tofu 12 on them.

    i flashed the thibor 12 successfully :)
    But i can't find any setting about speedbooster
    it will run in speedbooster mode when suitable client is found? :cheerup:

    Is there any way to lock the 108Mbps Transmission Rate is all clients support speedbooster?

    Thanks Thibor and I am looking forward to 13 when it is done.
