    There are serveral versions of the WRT54G and WRT54GS. different powersupplies, chipsets, features, though all based on similar firmware.

    To find out which model you have please go by the Serail Number of your WRT54G/GS. this is the only true way of finding out.

    Known serial numbers (first 4 characters) vs versions / Chipsets:

    WRT54G
    CDF0 = WRT54G v1.0 / ADM6996L Chipset / CPU 125Mhz
    CDF1 = WRT54G v1.0 / ADM6996L Chipset / CPU 125Mhz
    CDF2 = WRT54G v1.1 / ADM6996L Chipset / CPU 125Mhz
    CDF3 = WRT54G v1.1 / ADM6996L Chipset / CPU 125Mhz
    CDF5 = WRT54G v2.0 / ADM6996L Chipset / CPU 200Mhz
    CDF7 = WRT54G v2.2 / BCM5325EKQM Chipset / CPU 200Mhz
    CDF8 = WRT54G v3.0 / BCM5325EKQM Chipset / CPU 200Mhz
    CDF9 = WRT54G v3.1 / BCM5325EKQM Chipset / CPU 200Mhz
    CDFA = WRT54G v4.0 / BCM5352EKQM Chipset / CPU 200Mhz
    CDFB = WRT54G v5.0 / BCM5352EKPB Chipset / CPU 200Mhz
    CDFC = WRT54G v5.1 / BCM5352EKPB Chipset / CPU 200Mhz
    CDFD = WRT54G v6.0 / BCM5352EKBG Chipset / CPU 200Mhz
    CDFE = WRT54G v7.0 / Atheros AR2317 Chipset / CPU 200Mhz
    CDFK = WRT54G v7.2 / BCM5354KFBG Chipset (v similar to V8)
    CDFF = WRT54G v8.0 / BCM5354KFBG Chipset / CPU 240Mhz

    NOTE: The WRT54G v5/v6 has 2Mb/8Mb Ram, it uses VxWorks OS and is incompatible with 3rd Party Firmware. v7 (Atheros chipset) is not supported by any 3rd party firmware. v8 (Broadcom Chipset) may have ddwrt support however you need to check the supported devices here: http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Supported_Devices#Box_based_Routers

    WRT54GL
    CL7A = WRT54GL v1.0 / BCM5352E Chipset / CPU 200Mhz
    CL7B = WRT54GL v1.1 / BCM5352EKPBG Chipset / CPU 200Mhz

    WRT54GS
    CGN0 = WRT54GS v1.0 / ADM6996L Chipset / CPU 200Mhz
    CGN1 = WRT54GS v1.0 / ADM6996L Chipset / CPU 200Mhz
    CGN2 = WRT54GS v1.1 / BCM5325EKQM Chipset / CPU 200Mhz
    CGN3 = WRT54GS v2.0 / BCM5325EKQM Chipset / CPU 200Mhz
    CGN4 = WRT54GS v2.1 / BCM5325EKQM Chipset / CPU 200Mhz
    CGN5 = WRT54GS v3.0 / BCM5352E Chipset / CPU 200Mhz
    CGN6 = WRT54GS v4.0 / BCM5352E Chipset / CPU 200Mhz
    CGN7 = WRT54GS v5.0 / BCM5352EKPB Chipset / CPU 200Mhz
    CGN8 = WRT54GS v5.1 / BCM5352EKPBG Chipset / CPU 200Mhz
    CGN9 = WRT54GS v6.0 / BCM5352EKPBG Chipset / CPU 200Mhz
    CGNA = WRT54GS v7.0 / BCM5354KFBG Chipset / CPU 240Mhz


    NOTE: The WRT54GS v5/v6 uses VxWorks OS and is incompatible with 3rd Party Firmwares. v7.0 uses Broadcom but is unsupported at present.

    using the "SysInfo.htm" is not recommended, this gives on some versions the same answer and therefore cannot be used as an accurate way of finding out which model version you have.

    NOTE: if you have a new version of WRT54G/GS that is not listed then please PM me with the version number and first four characters of the Serial number.

    Anyone wishing to buy a WRT54G i would recommend now buying the WRT54GL
