    Does anyone know the hardware differences between the V2, V3, V4 and V5 versions of the WRT54GS.

    I understand that there are some memeory differences, but what are they ?

    What other differences are there?

    Also, how can I tell if I have a point release version ( ie 2.2) ? Is it marked one the label the same way as the no point release or ?

    Go to the front page of this site and click on the "autopsies" selection for the WRT54G/GS.
    There, at the bottom of the page is a detailed chart of the differences.

    There is only one that is bad and its serial number starts with CDFB.

    P.S. A point release is marked on the label as well as a different prefix on the serial number.

    P.P.S. If you have any more questions, I hang out at the forums of www.hyperwrt.org and answer a lot of questions there. Well, after posting a few stickies on the most common questions, there aren't so many questions asked anymore. But, those stickies may be a good read. I hope so. ;)
