    I bought 256mb of ram to upgrade my wallstreet(from newegg), and to my surprise, it only shows up as 128. This happens in both slots. I've read that everyone who have upgraded to the max of 320 have had sucess, could this be a bad/mismarked module?

    Bad RAM. Run the hardware test CD, but the Wallstreet should hold more RAM than that.

    MacTracker reports an actual limit of 512 MB, and Apple's supported limit of 192 MB. But Apple's limit just means that they didn't have any larger amounts of RAM at the time and didn't bother to go back and test it. So you are clear up to 512 MB of RAM.

    I had the same problem with my Wallstreet. I bought to modules of 256MB, both of them were recognised as only 128MB. I'm pretty sure it's because they are modern modules with 8 chips. My guess is that you have one with 8 chips too. You need one with 16.
