    I'm new to this forum so please bear with me...
    I have a wrt54g v3.1 box with firmware v4.01.1 (EU) on board. I'd like to upgrade it but I'm confused by the revision numbers.
    I'm aware of the limitations in the number of channels for the US firmware.
    However the revision numbers for the EU seem to have changed recently from 4.0x.x to 4.20.x, which happen to look just like the US version. I'm at a loss...
    My question is this: is the 4.20.x firmware actually meant for the EU? If so then why have Linksys created such confusion with the versions

    I only use Hyperwrt and the most current versions are based on the US 4.20.9 Linksys codebase. US only supports 11 channels but these new firmwares list 13 channels. So, I'll assume that they should work for you.

    Ok, thanks
    4.20.8 works fine
    I was a bit worried that it wouldn't as the new firmware itself has v.4 in the name but it wasn't after the upload that I noticed it.
