    I have a brand new WRT54GS v4.0 wich has FW:1.05.3 and works fine. On the other hand, I intend to try DDWRT v23, but, as a way back, I need to save the current FW. On the Linksys site, the latest FW posted is 1.05.2. So, is there a way, for a MS Windows user, to save the current FW? I must add that I know practiccaly nothing about LINUX/UNIX. So, be kind and explain like for newbies.
    Many Thanx.

    The gpl tarball is availble for the 1.05.3 firmware, so even though it is not available as a bin it can be compiled easily enough.

    Thank you Toxic.
    I took it.
    Maybe, someone else, like you did, has the official FW 1.05.03.bin.
    Anyway, thank you very much.

    PS:
    I know that my English isn't as good as I want, jgutz20.
    But, I don't live in Minnesota, I'm from East Europe.

    if you go for DD-WRT firmware i doubt you will want to return to an official firmware anyway. make sure you use the DD-WRT v23 SP1 firmware however.

    Thank you both, mstombs and grcore!
    Maybe I worry too much, but is good to have a way back.
