I need some help determining the clok speeds I can set the processor ram and FSB to. I have added a fan to the router as it was runing warm already, looking to find a safe over clocking point.

the processer is curently set to 533mhz but I am sure I can go higher and I am unsure about the ram and FSB.

I havent anything on this router yet.

why do you want to oc the device? it is already one of the fastest around.

dd-wrt is not fully supported so not many are running the router with dd-wrt.

just have at it and report back. you are the pioneer on this one.

know that a bad overclock can make the router completely inaccessible and if fubar, jtag will be the only recovery option (assuming jtag supports this router).

AFAIK no TJTAG work has been done for this device.

the every other value is half e.g nvram set clkfreq=480,240,120
or 532,266,133

I did try 533,266,133 with my wrt610 v2 (before i converted it to E3000) and I bricked it. Luckily a hard reset fixed it for me, you may not be this lucky. Also, I did try frequencies beyong 532 (hoping that if something happens I would take it back to the store as faulty), the router did boot up and it did show the right frequencies in nvram but bogomips went down for some reason. So watch for that as well (cat /proc/cpuinfo).

But as the guys said, if you brick it then you are screwed as there is no jtag available to restore the unit. If you can't take the unit back to the store after you've bricked it Rolling Eyes don't try it.
