    Has anyone attempted to replace the Ram or Flash chips with larger capacity chips? It appears, at least for the RAM, that the 32MB chip has the same size package.

    would the current 3rd party firmwares be able to support such an upgrade if it was physically possible?

    Just checking to see if anyone has attempted it yet or if it is even possible.

    I am just gettin started with these routers so if the topic has been covered let me know where I might find some info on it.

    It would be possible IMO, since there are rumors of a few GS routers out there with 32mb of flash. As the OS on these routers is linux, it should be able to recognize and use it. I don't think anyone has tried this before, but I could be wrong.

    All GS routers from v.1 thru v.3 have 32MB of RAM and 8MB flash. That's the true advantage of the GS...the Speedbooster crap is .....well....crap!! It can be enabled with software (DD-WRT, HyperWRT), and you MUST have ALL Speedbooster compatible equipment for it to work, or it doesn't. And when it does, it's a marginal gain at best. I run a GS v.2 for the added memory, not the Speedbooster function.

    And yes, RAM and Flash chip mods have been successfully done. See the link below. This guy is a GOD!!!
