    I already did an overclocking to my Linksys WRT54GL @ 250 Mhz and works fine since about 6-8 months. I heard that i could do an overclock at maximum of 300 Mhz... with an improvised cooling system ofcourse.
    What are the frequencies working over 250 Mhz ?
    264, 275, 288 and 300 Mhz from that i know - is it correct ?

    Cheers !

    Hi, i dont think over clocking so high will have any/more benefits, only a theortical bit faster client comunication and you will fry it faster. I have a 54gl loaded with Tomato Raf and already fully tested it.

    I'm no where near being an expert on this but I have overclocked my WRT54GL to 250Mhz and the performance increase is noticeable. However, from what I can tell going over 250 Mhz seems unnecessary given that the hardware itself wouldn't live long.

    My PSP 1001 runs at 222Mhz, overclocking it to the max spec(333Mhz) gives little to no performance boost, just wears the hardware in the long run.

    Although if you really want to overclock it past 250Mhz then do it. I wouldn't know the exact freq ratings but I thought I would leave my opinion.
