    I have a Linksys WRT54G wireless router, and it is V3.1 according to the lable underneath my router.

    Does anyone know if HyperWRT works on it? On their website it says it is compatible through v3, doesn't say anything about 3.1 which makes me believe it isn't compatible. But maybe it is possible that he hasn't updated that change yet?

    So the question I know, anyone know if HyperWRT is compatible with my v3.1 router?

    Heh. I ordered it about 2 weeks ago the guy said they are waiting on stock and as soon as they get them they will post me one.

    Got it the other day. 3.1 alright. Not overly sure on taking the photo... I might open it up tonight.

    I think the 3.1 is the version 4.0 people were spreading rumors about. I believe the difference has to do with SES.

    if you ever open it could you post a pic. and if you break the warrenty seal it will void the warrent. so i told you so.

    i dont think this is the 4.0 people were talking about, but ill be looking out for the CDF9. They come with the latest firmware, so i suppose it should have the ses on the front.

    i also have the v3.1 and yes it has the SES on the front. I am thinking of using the Alchemy final v1 on it. Will it be compatible?

    i don't think so. You will need a custom firmware based off the new 4.00.7 release

    i was talking to Linksys tech support and he told me that the v3.00x firmware should work on all v3 routers. I have not yet tried this though

    I just picked up a new CDF9 v3.1 WRT54G router and am looking for a compatible firmware option. Will keep an eye on this thread to see if a HyperWRT solution becomes available.
  15. Hey, I just bought a new WRT54G from Staples on Sunday, only $40 after a $10 mail in rebate, and it turns out that it’s a new v3.1, and as far as I can tell the beta version of HyperWRT works fine on it.

    I searched around on line for a couple of hours trying to find info on what’s compatible with the new 3.1s and it’s like they don't even exist. But I’m just reporting that HyperWRT worked smoothly, haven’t tested to see if there is any kind of problem with the wireless connection and transferring large files, my sister's laptop isn't home yet so I can't experiment. I'd post pictures but unfortunately my digital camera died last week.

    I bought a v3.1 about a week ago, and HyperWRT v2.1b1 is the only firmware I could successfully load. Other attempts with Alchemy v6rc5a did not take, nor did DD-WRT work. Both attempts yield a message stating "Upgrade are failed" (I guess they aren't English and grammar majors, but oh well). I am not sure if the failure is due to a file size requiring tftp, or if there is a new set of instructions that check which firmware you are trying to load. The reason I say this is because Cisco/Linksys would not appreciate losing money on the sales of their more expensive bridges. As far as Hyper goes, I do not see any options for Client Mode, which is what we'll need for bridging. In addition, I do not see WDS feature sets either. I would prefer WDS so that I can put all of my wireless on its own subnet, and pass DHCP requests to my server. I know, flat networks suck, but when at home and one usually doesn't have any more than ten or so clients at a time, a scaled network just doesn't make sense. If anyone has any other success with different firmwares, please post. As I said, I would appreciate a Client Mode and/or WDS. As far as a picture goes, I can't help out there. I am not sure if I am going to keep this or return it and try and find a v2.0, so I don't want to void the warranty just yet. I suspect, however, that the differences are more along the lines of code, and not so much as the EZ Setup button released with version 3. An upgrade from v3.0 to v3.1 is usually something minor.
