As soon as i get the chance to actually install DD-WRT on my WRT54GL here and overclock that baby you will have a glorious money shot of an active cooled Router. Probably this weekend.

Unfortunately, I do not actually own the cable modem, it's a rental....

I have a WRT54GS flashed with DD-WRT and overclocked to 250 (from 200). Currently there are heat sinks (ram sinks) on the chips inside and an 80mm fan on it.

I got charged $150 for the rental, which is given back to me at the termination of my service once they come pick up the modem. I think I would rather have my $150 back.

i own WRT54GL. all i did is increased the size of the top & bottom holes by drilling them with larger drillbit - looks nice too. also i placed heatsinks onto chips. i'd love to put a 80 mm fan on top sucking air with couple LEDs/Resistors to slow it down but the router is in my housemate's room so i cannot do that. Ohh & i also did the same with my modem.

I just installed a fan in my WRT54G

If I can get ahold of some good small heatsinks I might go for an overclock.
(any good topics that explain how? Will this increase the range/signal strength?)

sorry for crappy cell phone pics... its all I have to take pictures with.

I superglued a 50mm exhaust fan to the roof of the router, and soldered the wires under the board.

yes, apparently you can OC the wrt54G when using the ddwrt firmware... Im not quite sure what the point of it is, but its overclocking and I want to figure it out.

ddwrt wrt54gl under the admin tab you'll see it all the way down.

i've been running 250 mhz for months with zero problems. actually it runs in my server closet on the top shelf which is hot as hell with zero cooling.

Cool! and pretty sweet! I wish there was a way to make an "untangle modem" kind of like a router... But the modem requires communication and verification with the ISP.

Hey, I have a WRT54G too, but the overclock thing is greyed out... what gives? What version do you have, it could be because I have the Micro version due to smaller flash size.

Probably... I feel like im the only one without the WRT54G. Its possible you need a firmware uprgrade on it.

My router is an x86 machine running pfsense, so that doesn't count for this, i guess, but my switch is a Dell PowerConnect 2724 with two 40mm fans..... does that count?
