    I was wondering if the WRT54GS v3 or up is overclockable? From the autopsy, I know they use a 5352 chip while the older version use 5325 chip. The old one is overclockable, but what about this new one?
    Also, if I can choose from a GS v3 or a GS v2.1, which one should I get?

    Personally i would not overclock your router for fear of frying the router.

    Yeah Routers are not like overclocking PC's. Routers have no way of keeping cool. I'd say theres a greater then 50% chance of frying it. Sure u can overclock it a few mhz but you won't see any change in performaced. Once u do over click it a good 40mhz it will fry without proper cooling.
