    Hi - I've just started looking into enhancing my system firmware, but I've noticed some of the other projects have problems with the 2.0 version of the WRT54GS box. Has anyone tried this out on one of those?

    My SysInfo:

    Vendor:LINKSYS
    ModelName:WRT54GS
    Firmware Version:v3.37.1 , Oct 18 2004
    #:002
    Boot Version:v3.4.2
    CodePattern:W54S
    Country:US

    RF Status:enabled
    RF Firmware Version:v3.37.1
    RF Domain:US (channel 1~11)
    RF Channel:6
    RF SSID:linksys

    -----Dynamic Information

    LAN Mac Address:00:12:17:D1:4C:04
    WAN Mac Address:00:04:5A:E9:EF:86

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    HyperWRT 2.x releases will work fine on all WRT54G and WRT54GS hardware.

    OK, but if not, then I don't understand the output on my SysInfo.htm page (I thought the last line showed what the hardware version was)...

    Vendor:LINKSYS

    The WRT54G v2.0 and WRT54GS v1.0 use the same hardware. They most likely forgot to rename it. The WRT54GS you have is probably a v1.0 or v1.1
    I guess v1.1 as it has a newer boot loader.

    the only difference of the GS v1.0 and the v2.0 G is the boot code. they do have the same hardware, but the G model only can access 16mb ram and not 32 like the GS v1.0

    is there any real problem? is your router working?

    I haven't tried it yet; I was nervous about it as I saw several posts over at the Sveasoft board with folks reporting problems after they flashed and their SysInfo page had said HW version 2.0.

    I'll give things a shot and we'll see what happens...thanks for the assistance.

    Easiest way to know is to see what firmware was preinstalled.
    Below 3.xx.x = WRT54G 2.0 or WRT54GS 1.0
    3.01.3/3.03.1 or 3.17.4/3.37.2 = WRT54G 2.2 or WRT54GS V1.1
    3.03.6 or 3.37.6 = WRT54G 3.0 or WRT54GS 2.0
