    Howdy i have searched the forums for something on my WRT54G V7 and it seems that none of the 3rd party software will support it however is it possible to at least overclock the signal similar to what it says in this web page http://www.short-media.com/forum/archive/index.php/t-4517.html

    Thanks in advance


    p.s my serial number begins with CDFE

    Afaik we dont know. the v7 uses a totally different radio chipset (Atheros not Broadcom). the overclocking does not overclock the wireless signal. and that article is very old.

    v1.x WRT54G routers run on 125 mhz.
    v2.x-v6 afaik ALL run at 200Mhz default (except some v2.2 ram timing issue)

    Your v7 has an unknown speed but latterversions all run at 200mhz.

    To be honest it is pretty good although my house isnt that big i always have a "very good" or "excellent" signal the deal was £49.00 which included a miniture USB antenna thingy which i thought was pretty good.

    The only problem i have is that whenever i connect thorugh windows wireless i always get the "aquiring network address" message constantly even though i can still access my network, and the internet when checking the properties page of the connection it shows it has! been assigned an IP by the DHCP .. strange.

    that is some weird windows netowrking quirk. I've never been able to track down why it does it, but I just ignore it and go on with life.

    Yeah i sometimes get this on my laptop with the latest broadcom drivers and tbh i think its a windows graphical problem.
