Is it possible to upgrade the wireless of CISCO 877W from b/g to Draft N by upgrading IOS.
Currently the IOS on router is on version 12.4.

No, it is not possible the RF sections of the router are different.

I take back my previous response.  It appears some of the units had the correct radios.

You can get the latest firmware bundled with the IOS.  I would download the latest 12.4 package ap801-k9w7-tar.124-25d.JA.tar and you should see at least what Cisco called "super G"mode.

Hi,

877 not supporting N super G mode supported by the liksys routers, it is hardware coded, so you not able to upgrade it!

Best regards,
Istvan
