    Hi all

    New to the group and the WRT54GS.

    I have decided to replace my Linksys BEFRS41 Ver2 after two years as Linksys or Microsoft (SP2) has broken upnp, not completely but enough to be a pain with http downloads etc.

    So I decided to buy a WRT54GS as I like the idea someone other then Linksys can write the firmware!

    My first question is that I notice on the UK Linksys website the current version of firmware is 3.37.2 and the Linksys firmware the Sveasoft firmware is based on seems to be earlier.

    I think the items that interest me are in Sveasoft are antenna selection, power output.

    Somebody please tell me upnp is still not broken.... please !

    that firmware is the US firmware. difference being UK is under ETSI regulations and has 13 wireless channels available. US only has 11.

    no other difference though. Sveasoft firmware may have a "different" version number but it has tons of other features and bug fixes within the older driver/firmware.

    I dont use upnp only port forwarding..

    I got that version off the linksys UK website under products, wrt54gs then firmware.... I think this is all part and parcel why I have given up on linksys support and in particular the UK website.

    I use a BEFRS41 at the moment and upnp does not work correctly on 1.46.2 firmware. I have waited so long for a good firmware version or this router I have now given up and the thought of a router where firmware other then that from linksys can be used sonds appealing.

    I would like upnp to work correctly and msn messenger is used heavily here on a number of different machines, any idea if this has been fixed in any of the sveasoft firmware?
