Hamnet router

I finally found a router at Goodwill that works ($4.99) + power supply ($2.99). Nice little router, BUT it's a WRT54G V8. Is the F/W to new and not compatible?

    I'm afraid so. It's not the firmware, but the WRT54G V8 has only 8M of RAM and 2M of flash. Earlier versions (1-4) had 16M of RAM and 4M of flash.

    You can get a handy chart to convert serial number prefix for WRT54G, WRT54GS and WRT54GL to version here:

    The HSMM firmware needs 16M of RAM and 4M of flash. I know Goodwill will give you credit for items returned within 14 days. You might want to make use of that.
