    Is it possible to use GS firmware on a G? The hardware appears to be the same, other then ram and flash size.

    Has anyone tried this or is anyonw willing to donate an old G for testing?

    Oh yes

    God, made that mistake last night. The pulldowns on the router setup were messed up. In order to flash back to WRT54G, I had to crack the case open, short pin 16 and do an immediate flash via tftp.

    The reason why I am asking is...

    I use an iBook G4 with built in Airport Extreme. I currently own a WRT54G but the max connection rate I have seen (large file transfer through the network) is 36Mbps, I have never seen it say 54Mbps. I was sitting about 1foot away from the router. I have heard rumors that the WRT54GS will work better with apple extreme.

    Anyone know?
    AND, what the heck is the actual difference between the G and GS?????
