Upgrading the RAM in a WRT54Gv2

We’re seeing more and more ‘rework at home’ blog posts. this one is removing and replacing TSOP RAM from a router using a mini-torch… Kenneth writes

This project is specific to the rev 2 hardware, due to Linksys converting the routers from SDRAM to DDR RAM at some point (Probably the G/GL split?).  It is certainly possible with newer versions, but requires different chips and nvram parameters.  Obviously, this means that with the addition of a new flash chip (which you’d need a JTAG cable to debrick), you could probably convert a WRT54Gv8 into a WRT54GL…


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Wow. That’s what I call real hardware hacking.
