    Just loaded v23 18-11-05 on the new version of the WRT54GL (linux Version). Placed in client bridge mode, works perfectly. Original firmware was Linksys V 4.3.

    Haven't seen any pics of this model yet... does it look the same externally as the WRT54G?

    The WRT54GL is a WRT54G V4, with a new letter on the model name to differentiate it from the WRT45GL V5 (VXWorks castrated version of the WRT54GL).

    Linksys would have been better off renaming the new VXWorks box the "WRT54GV" as a "low cost alternative to the WRT54GL", and left the WRT54GL V4 well enough alone. Less confusion that way.

    But, whatever.

    Formula: WRT54G V4 = WRT54GS V4 = WRT54GL.

    So how to get WRT with 8 meg flash and 32 meg RAM now?

    No future option in WRT line?

    At this point? Find an older GS, and good luck with that.

    Someone'll probably come up with some clever way to add memory (physically) to the V4/GL or something, who knows? But for now, the current product line contains, AT BEST, a 16/4 unit. At worst, the WRT54G V5 has 8/2, if I recall.

    Just loaded DD-WRT on a WRT54GS v4 unit. With standard firmware there's a measly 320K left for jffs space or expansion.


    I will treat my old GS v1.0 unit very well, looks like it will not be easily replaced.

    I hear ya. I picked up a WRT45G V4 and loaded HyperWRT Tofu and I have about 700K free, give or take a little. I would have MUCH preferred a WRT54GS pre-V4, but after a week or so of hard digging at all the local stores, I found a pile of WRT54G V4's at Walmart (no older GS units there either) for $50 each, considered myself lucky, and bought one on the spot. Maybe I should go back and buy a couple more, and resell them on eBay. (grin)

    I guess the easy and sensible solution is to buy an ASUS WL-500G Deluxe.

    200 Mzh
    32 MB RAM
    4 MB Flash (Unfortunately)
    2 x USB 2.0 ports where USB PEN Drives, Harddrives and Printers can be attached.

    The WRT54GL is officially in retail store. Found a bunch on the shelf at a computer store in San Francisco for $60.
