    You should have clarified earlier that you were comparing WRT54GS.

    FW 1.05.4 is for v4 hardware and runs on 16MB RAM / 4 MB Flash - basically the same hardware as the WRT54G v4 hardware.

    Firmware release notes for WRT54GS v4:
    It still runs GPL Linux but most firmware hacks for the WRT54GS expects v1~v3 hardware which has 32MB RAM / 8 MB Flash because it needs the bigger memory.

    As such, it seems Linksys removed some lesser used functions in these newer WRT54GS. Also note that with firmware code reverting back to 1.0x, there is a possibility of inability to support WDS bridging (which requires 2.0x or above firmware).

    Firmware release notes for WRT54GS v1~v3:
