    I am a proud new owner of a WRT54G v3.1 :cheering:
    Thanks to this FatWallet thread.

    After looking at the conversion chart on this page, I don't see much of a difference between v3 and v3.1, the only thing that changed between these is the RAM Device
    v3 = Hynix 1x HY5DU281622ET
    v3.1 = Hynix 1x 504AA HY5DU281622ET-J

    So is this the only difference ?

    My second question is, is this the best version to get?
    I might bring this back to staples and see if they have v4 or another version that is better then my v3.1...
    My main goal is to provide a more secure network, w/ the ability to use VNC and possibly VPN.

    Any suggestions?

    p.s. Sorry for the questions I am a Linksys Newb, and I am converting from Netgear POS router (WGR614).

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Update Question...

    I just read a post from the Fatwallet Thread.

    Is this true ?
    I don't have FIOS yet, but as soon as it comes to my area, I plan on jumping on the bandwagon... should I return to staples and look for a v4 ?

    Thanks again in advance,

    The HyperWRT forums are a good source for real details between the versions.

    The FatWallet post doesn't give version numbers of firmware and other essential information...

    I suspect firmware has more to do with the speed difference than hardware. What changed in the hardware to account for this?
