    Firmware info:
    Firmware Date : 10/17/2005
    Firmware File Size : 2.74 MB

    Click here to download the firmware for this product.

    There are no notes available, not even on the ftp. It's the EU version, 13 wireless channels available.


    Couldn't find it in the "Linksys Official Firmware-forum". If it's there, close this thread ;)

    European Official firmware

    There's also a new European version for the WRT54GS

    v4.50.9 but presumably this is similar to the buggy 4.50.6 US version which was quickly replaced by v4.70.6 (which is on the web site, not the ftp site).

    Again no release notes, but sourcecode has been available for all 3 versions for some time so no doubt someone could work out the differences!

    Well, after i updated v.4.0.1 (i think), i didn't have problems anymore with bittorrent and socket (with that old version, it f*cked my connection when seeding/downloading longer that 15minutes ;))

    I just updated WRT54G v2.2 with this 4.20.8 firmware.
    The first 15 minutes seem ok so far.

    I have had problems lately with dropping PPPoE connection, would be interesting to see release notes, what they have fixed in this version. Not expecting anything, but sure hope that this firmware would help me.

    Have y'all ever had unstable PPPoE with WRT54G? What did you tweak? Do you have any pointers to further information?

    What exactly is the difference here to the 4.20.7 US firmware (my WRT54G is running atm)? Only the amount of channels (US=11, EU=13)? Or is there more? Just asking because that 4.20.8 is not officially avail form the http support pages, only from the ftp servers. Do you suggest updateing from 4.20.7 to 4.20.8???
