    Hi All,

    Is it dangerous to O/C at 300 my wrt ?:D


    for instance I put only 228 Mhz , I think I need a good cooling to raise the cpu clock like cpu o/c on my wrt ?

    can we have a temperature sensor in wrt ?

    Thanks :thumb:

    Yes, I wouldn't do it. My GS v2 gets unstable when overclocked at all above 216Mhz.

    What is the _usual_ speed of a WRT54G?
    I have a v.2.2 an I'm not sure if the 216 MhZ is the correct rate.
    Does anybody know about that?

    I have my GS v. 2.1 OC'd to 240 and it seems plenty stable. I do have a 40mm x 10mm fan mounted inside the top cover to pull heat out of the unit. It's been my experience that heat is the big killer when OC'ing....people just don't take it into consideration. I also have quality copper heat sinks on all of the chips and the radio housing (I have the Tx level up to 63). I have the fan turned down to about 2/3 speed (with a potentiometer mounted between the fan and power source) and it stays nice and cool.

    The OP mentioned a temp sensor. There seems to be a lot of info around about installing a Dallas 1 wire temp sensor onto the serial port of the WRT54G board. It seems simple enough to do, but I've not seen anyone that has real-world experience with it. Maybe I'll try it after I finish adding my Micro SD card !!! Has anyone else tried the Dallas (or any other) temp sensor?
