    what i did
    i installed dd-wrt.v23_wrt54g.bin
    and after couple of hours i decided that its not for me., i guess to advanced:)
    than i loaded v4.30.1, HyperWRT 2.1b1 +tofu13c

    thean i noticed that router name is WRT54GL and also up there below logo its Wireless-G Broadband Router WRT54GL ,...

    so now i am wondering? is this good or bad? :)
    in case if i need to flash it again what firmware i will have to look for , for what router?:)

    Thank you

    it's purely cosmetic, don't worry about it

    In fact you can easily change it to any name you like in Router Name under Basic Setup

    The model of the router is stored in the Firmware. Since the latest Tofu build is based on the Linksys firmware for the WRT54GL, your router will identify itself as a WRT54GL.

    You can change the NAME of the router in the first setup screen, which will change how the router identifies itself. That can be changed back to WRT54G (or anything you want, really), and will appear on all the configuration screens. Change it to "BERTHA" if you like and your model number will show up as "BERTHA" on all the web interface screens.

    Not entirely sure where you are seeing that the "router is converted to a WRT54GL". But it's purely cosmetic in any case. The hardware of your router is still WRT54G v2.2 hardware. It just happens to be running software that is based on the stock WRT54GL software, but it can handle it just fine.
