    I just bought a WRT54GS V4 (with the intention to use OpenWRT) but I'm puzzeld about the firmware I have (and if it is still Linux based)
    According to the setup page it is v1.05.3 and SysInfo.htm reports
    Firmware Version:v1.05.3 , Sep 22 2005
    Boot Version:v3.6.4
    However on this forum I also read that there exist 4.x.y.z. versions. Now I'm puzzeled. Does this sudden change of version mean that it is based on different hardware ?

    Another thing is that I can't find this versions firmware .bin, so if I manage to flash an older/newer version I cannot get back to my current version.

    Any hints ?

    Firmware 1.05
    - Initial release for version 4.

    NOTE: This firmware is not compatible with WRT54GS hardware version 1.0, 1.1, 2.0, 2.1 or 3.0. Please check the bottom of your router to ensure you have the correct hardware version.

    I found some of the answers in the following threads

    Before posting, I did read the first thread, and assumed that since there was no warning on the GS v4 that it was linux.
    As I understand now, it isn't the case. But since the hardware has still enough ram to run it anyway it is no problem.

    One question still reamins, how to get the current image.

    Anyone found the binary yet?
    I've e-mailed the Linksys support but they stay silent as a brickwall.
