    I upgraded my router the otherday to a new version of firmware but I'm not sure if I have the right one or not...

    I have a WRT54GS Speedbooster, the firmware version from the online administrative says: 4.71.1.

    However, the Linksys homepage has version 1.50.8 (http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Sate...15453&pagename=Linksys/Common/VisitorWrapper). When I try to update to the version off the homepage I get errors... I'm not sure if I had earlier inadvertanly flashed the wrong hardware version.

    What version GS do you have, that 1.50.8 is for the crippled GS (VxWorks)?

    There is no version number next to the model number on the bottom of the router.

    That usually means version 1.0

    Yup, I have a version 1.0 and it just says WRT54GS.

    You can use the first 4 characters of the serial number to check though,

    this wikipedia page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WRT54G#Hardware_revisions

    has a list of the versions and the Serial Number prefix. (The first table is the WRT54G though, you have to scroll down a bit for the GS)
