    My experience has included finding that several Linksys products I have purchased were not the then current versions.
    How can one maximize the likelyhood that the item purchased is the current version (I'm not referring to firmware level -- I mean the hardware version.)
    Of course, by inference that means that one should be able to determine the latest shipping version. How can that be done?
    Any help would be appreciated, for it is certain that, at any given moment, there is appreciable inventory in the wholesale/retail pipeline.

    depending on the product, some will actually say the model version # and others (like WRT54G etc) will have it "hidden" in the serial. The first digits of the serial like CDF1, CDF2....CDFA coincide with the hardware version that it is.
