    Can someone tell me if there is another version of firmware that I can use on the Linksys WRT54GX ver.2 model? I have tried the offical version from Linksys ... but had many problems with this router / access point. I would like to try a different firmware version and looking for anyone who has had luck with this model...

    Many thanks in advance for your help!

    Is it safe to use the US firmware (filename WRT54GX_V2_USA_2.00.15.bix) on a UK router?
    I have looked for a UK version but there don't seem to be any firmware updates at all for this router on the UK site.

    It is the same just with preset US as a country.
    You can install it on you router and if you REALLY need last 3 channels just go to http://your.router.ip/wifi.asp and change country to EU
