    It is my understanding that the WRT54G/S v. 4, v. 5, and GL v. 1 and v. 1.1 will not overclock beyond 240. http://forum.bsr-clan.de/ftopic8229.html
    Above that the GUI may say it's OC'd to 255, or whatever you select, but if you actually look at your CPU info (cat /proc/cpuinfo), it reverts back to 200. That leaves you with 2 choices. 228 and 240. I'm running my GS v. 2.1 at 228 with no problems. I made a JTAG cable and have learned to de-brick using a couple of "practice routers", so I'm going to bump mine up to 240...and beyond. I can feel pretty safe doing that because if I brick it, I have the means to fix it. I guess your choice will be how far you're comfortable with. Good luck. Hope I helped.

    I just bumped mine to 240. Had a bit of trouble getting it to "take", but once it did, it seems to be fine. Good luck!! :rockon:
