    I bought wireless G broadband router WRT54G-EU. It contained firmware 2.02.7 and I'm assuming version number is v2.0 because CDF5 is under the box. I searched linksys.com and was unable to find a proper firmware update.

    I also bought a wireless G PCI adapter WMPG54G-EU. It included driver version and Wireless Network Monitor software v 4.1. Are there newer versions?

    Can you recommend updates?

    Thanks in advance.

    you can download the firmware which is v3.03.9 here: ftp://ftp.linksys.com/international/firmware/WRT54G_3.03.9_ETSI_code.zip

    Upgrade is on your own risk and note that u cannot downgrade to the previous version u have.
    Change log included in the zip file.


    I searched all sites and found nothing. found v2.2.70 for US only,
    but i guess this is not the same, so I guess u'll need to stick with it(I did and it function properly)

    if you want Linksys Original then yeah go for either the EU or US firmware. Personally I would use the latest US firmware, the only difference is the amount of Channels.

    EU 1-13

    US 1-11

    the US website has usually the latest firmware on offer.

    Linksys WRT54G v4.20.6 firmware

    changes from your firmware are as follows:

    • Last Firmware Version: 4.20.6 ______________________________
      Firmware 4.20.6
      - Resolve issues with setup wizard
      - Updated wireless security menu
      - Resolve issues with port based QoS

      Firmware 4.00.7
      - Adds SecureEasySetup push button support
      - Resolves large file transfer issues
      - Resolves issue with enabling TKIP after enabling WEP
      - Updated QoS features
      - Resolves issues with multiple Access Restrictions policies
      - Resolves issue where multicast breaks when MAC filter status changes

      Firmware 3.03.6
      - Supports hardware version 3
      - Updated help file

      Firmware 3.03.1
      - Wi-Fi certified

      Firmware 3.01.3
      - Updated wireless driver
      - Supports hardware version 2.2 (cannot downgrade to previous versions)

      - Resolves issue with long domain names

      Firmware 2.04.4
      - Updated wireless driver

    you could also go for something like HyperWRT firmware which has added features but based on 4.20.6 firmware.

    btw what Version of WRT do you have?

    CDF5 is in the text on bottom of wrt54g so I think it is v2.0.
    Thanks for all the info.

    I updated my router to this one. It works great!

    Is there a newer version of the Wireless Network Monitor Tool than v4.1?
    My card is still the same WMP54G-EU. I must say I'm a little disappointed of the software which came with the card. The Monitor Tool has a hard time finding out if I'm connected to the Internet, but it doesn't matter because the Internet works just fine without that info.
    The Monitor Tool runs as WMP54Gv4.exe and some times it makes an access violation (at address 0000 0000) when Windows XP starts.
