    I'm about to buy a WRT54GS and I want to make sure that I get a version 1.1 machine. Unfortunately the boxes aren't labeled with the router version numbers. They do have serial numbers though. You guys can verify this but as far as I can figure v1.0 GS's start with serial number CGN1, version 1.1 serial numbers start with CGN2. I'v also seen serial numbers starting with CGN0.

    Can anyone verify these serial numbers? It seems like the stores I've been to that are have some sort of sale only have CGN1 routers. My guess is that it is older stock that they are selling off. I've also called Linksys support and they were not very helpfull in that they just told me it doesn't matter, whatever one I get will be fine. It's probably a petty thing, but I'd just as soon get the latest HW release if I'm going to make a purchase.

    Thanks All,

    Any one?

    Come on guys. Don't be embarassed. :oops: Lift up a Linky leg and have a look underneath. Do the serial numbers jive with the HW version numbers?
