    Hi Guys

    I have a WRT54G v2.0 router with firmware v4.20.8.
    The v4.20.8.firmware is the latest one available from the UK Linksys website and is dated 10/17/2005, which seems a long time before releasing a new firmware.

    My questions are:

    1. Is there a newer official firmware available?

    2. Can I flash my Uk router with the newer US firmware and if so would i loose an functionality?

    3. Can I flash my router with any other official firmware models to make it better

    If you flash your WRT54G with the US firmware you will lose a few wireless channels. The US only allows the use of channels 1 through 11. Where as you have channels 1 through 13 in the UK.

    You can try any of the 3rd party firmwares.
