    I am running DDWRT v22 r2 on my WRT54GS v2 and have noticed that my wireless laptop (Intell Pro 2200BG) downshifts the speed a lot as well as disconnecting so was going to try to overclock the router with the following instructions I found here, but for some reason it does not save the new clock freq. When I go back in to check after the reboot command it still shows the clkfreq at 200. Any ideas why?

    1. Make sure SSH (or telnet) is enabled on router.
    2. Login to router via SSH (or telnet).
    3. Enter "nvram show | grep clkfreq" to see the current clock speed of the CPU on your router.
    4. Enter "nvram clkfreq=235" (or whatever clock speed you want to set it to).
    5. Enter "nvram commit".
    6. Enter "reboot" (or just pull the power plug and plug it back in).
    7. Once the router is back up, login to it via SSH (or telnet) and enter "nvram show | grep clkfreq" again to make sure the clock is set to the speed you entered.
