    You know thats a good question about flashing, i have not heard anyone say they have not been able too. And I think the only real difference between most US and EU wireless devices is the channel choices. Now about better, its all your preference, dd-wrt has a million and one options most of which you will not use, hyper wrt + thibor is great and then theres tomato. Theres many others but i think those 3 have the biggest following and all are great.

    Nice, about 1-2 hours after the first post my router arrived, i flashed it and it works fine, getting an good signal and all is well.
    Researched a bit and found some info about the differences from the EU and the others, apparently the EU has from 1-13 channels and the US has 1-11 and the Japanese 1-14 and all have different power plugs "and adapters", that's the difference "Not sure but that should be that".
    So happy to say the EU version of the WRT54GL-EU "EU for the eu version ofc." works fine and dandy :D

    That is really the only difference is the number of channels that you can legally use depending on where you live in the world.

    If you were to use the EU firmware in the US and wanted to use channels 12 or 13 which are out of the band plan for the US, technically you are in violation of the law as stated by the Federal Communications Commision. There is a possiblity that you could be interfering with another service.
