    I have a brand new WRT54GS V2.0 (per sticker on bottom)

    It has firmware 3.37.6 loaded and has been running fine.

    I have not been able to find out what the front button under the Cisco label is used for. Any ideas?

    Also is only hyperRT and mfg firmwares to be used with this right now?

    I have used Alchemy on my previous 54GS 1.0 and like the features. DDR looks interesting also and includes the xbox KAID functionality.

    Wish me luck on this one. I had a 1.1 that was have reboots with high traffic (LAN even)

    i remember seeing a post somewhere about a button you can press on the router that somehow automatically sets up encryption on the ap and the computers without the user needing a clue, that might be what it's for (anyhoo thats my story and i'm sticking to it)

    It is for the new "SecureEasySetup" that Linksys was working on to allow simple connections for "novice" users. Anyone who has recently bought one of the new models will find the CD its shipped with has a util that prompts you through everything as well.

    Have a look at another example of how far Linksys is going to help home users configure their hardware.

    If you have a v1.1, you can easily solder a push button on it.
