-DD-WRT supports versions 1 - 6 of the WRT54G, WRT54GL and WRT54GS hardware. WRT54G(S) v5-v6 series are supported in v23 SP1 and above "micro" builds, but require you use a special flashing procedure (see 'flashing v5 - vxworks killing'). DD-WRT does not currently support the WRT-54GX, Linksys's MiMo version router. DD-WRT is also reported to work on the WAP54G, but your mileage may vary. 
-The WRT54Gv7 uses an atheros chip, runs VxWorks, and has 2MB/8MB ROM/RAM. It is not supported. If someone wants to donate a unit to db90h (mail jeremy@bitsum.com) he can work on it. 
-v22 isnt compatible with v4 and newer routers and GL. They are different. Only v23 and newer will run on this model. 
-You would otherwise have to 'un-brick' your router ([http://www.linksysinfo.org/portal/forums/showthread.php?t=47259 Revival Guide method])  
-''NOTE1: '' 
-Additionally the stock firmware from Linksys on the WRT54G v4 and WRT54GL won't accept a firmware image over 3MB in size (you will get the error: "Upgrade are failed!"(sic) if you try) so you will need to flash the mini version of DD-WRT onto the router BEFORE flashing the std or voip versions. (Remember to hold reset button for 30 sec after flashing mini version.) 
-''NOTE2: '' 
-The WRT54GL Ver 1.1 stock firmware will accept a firmware image of at least 4MB in size; Flashed the memory with DD-WRT standard version (V23sp2). Do not see any success or fail message, however when completed got a blank screen in the IE browser. Rebooted the PC to clear the old IP out of PC's DNS and upon completed reboot was able to login to the new DD-WRT screen.

==Overclocking== ==Overclocking==
-The standard clock speed of a WRT54G(S) v2-v6 is 200 MHz. DD-WRT allows overclocking the device to up to 300 MHz for v2-v3 and up to 250mhz for v4-v6. It is also possible to underclock, which may be useful for troubleshooting crashes which may be caused by overheating. Newer Linksys firmware overclocks some models of the WRT54GS to 216 MHz, to prevent instability issues inherent in the 2.x versions.+BCM3303 v0.7 clock frequencies:

-The WRT54G(S) v4-v6 and WRT54GL v1.x have a BCM3302 v0.8 processor instead of a BCM3303 v0.7 with previous models. +

NVRAM (non-volatile RAM) is the place where the permanent settings are stored. On the command line you can view the NVRAM's content with

nvram show

A variable is stored/changed by issuing

nvram set <variable_name>="<value>"
nvram commit

You'll need to reboot to get the (changed) NVRAM executed.
