    I've been using this firmware on my wrt54g v2.2 for a couple of weeks, didn't have any problem until a couple of days ago when transferring files between computers, i started seeing the high throughput problem again.
    I've been trying to overclock it by telnetting into it, and using the following commands:

    'nvram set clkfreq=240'
    'nvram commit'

    after the reboot is complete, i telnet back into it and use the following command to make sure the change took place:

    'nvram show|grep clkfreq'

    which brings up the following:

    command_cmd=nvram show|grep clkfreq
    size: 21550 bytes (11218 left)

    i've tried this process about 5 times already with the same results. Am I doing something wrong? i'd appreciate any advice, thanks in advance

    just tried without rebooting, did the nvram show|grep clkfreq command, and its showing 240, so i guess it worked... should i enter the commands into the startup script?

    as for your advice on overclocking, i did the cooling mod, put heatsinks on the chips, and got a 80mm on top of the routher, im not really worried about overheating, i've bricked it a couple of times by entering bad overclocking speeds... but i've managed to get it working again, thanks for the advice though.
