    I have a Linksys WRT54GS-EU.
    I looked at the serial number CGN81F433962 and by the FAQ this should be
    CGN8 = WRT54GS v5.1 / BCM5352EKPBG Chipset

    So it should be version 5.1, in the web interface is show firmware v1.50.5
    I need the firmware that adds the PPPoE service option. So I went to the
    linksys downloads page (the UK site) and selected WRT54GS v5.0 from the
    drop down list, I downloaded the zip file, but in the text file inside it said this
    firmware is for "Hardware version 4".

    The firmware I found for "hardware version 5" is from the US site.

    I tried to trust the linksys UK site and tried to upgrade the firmware from the webinterface, gave it the file
    Don't ask me why it says "1.05.6" and not "1.50.6"

    The first thing that popped up was an html page "upgrade failed" then it spent 2-3 minutes running the progress bar until I got a JS type popup saying the upgrade failed. After that the router wasn't damaged at all.. its as if nothing happened.

    Anyone know which firmware file to get and from where?
    I need the upgrade that adds the PPPoE service option in it.

    I waited too long I thought what the hell. I used the firmware from the USA site. I it seemed to work.
