Is Firware Version 1.01.4 Jan 29, 2003 the latest firware for Linksys 802.11-G Wireless Broadband Router (Model WRT54G)?

Hi Everyone:

        I am in the process of trying to troubleshoot a week signal strength within my wireless setup.  It has been suggested to me from a previous post to update the router's firmware.  Basically, the router is a Linksys-G Wireless Broadband Router (Model WRT54G).  Upon logging into the setup page of the router, I noticed the firmware 1.01.4 Jan. 29, 2003.  I am unsure if this is the latest firmware version.  If not, can someone send me a direct download llink for the needed firmware update?

          Any response to this question will greatly be appreciated.

         Thank you

          George

You will need to know the version number to determine the latest firmware for your router. It is normally located on the label with the model number. After you determine the model number you can go to the following link to get the most up to date firmware.

Hope this helps

Hi

        I can not find the version number on the router.  However, the version number for the Linksys Wireless Adapter is 4.  Perhaps I am overlooking the version number on the router.  If this helps, the S/N of the router is CDF003210436 and the FCC ID is PKW-WM54G.

        Thank you

Hi

       Upon closer visual inspection of the router, I noticed I can automatically upgrade the firmware while being logged into the router.  It is asking for the path to the current firmware  so I can browse to it.  What would be the path for the current Linksys router firmware?

         Thank you

it uploads the file from your local pc after you download it from linksys. Look on the tag on top of the router, it will say linksys WRT54G ver.x. If there is no version number then it may be version 1

Hi There:

       Thank you so much for the resourceful link along with the followup information regarding the logistics of carrying out the firmware upgrade.  You certainly went beyond the call of duty on this one.  As such, I greatly appreciate you getting me through the firmware upgrade of the wireless router.

       Many thanks once again for an outstanding job.
