    are you sure you have the correct bin file that your trying to load? if the tftp says wrong codeits not going to work on the web interface. I'd try a different version of the firmware or even an oldver version if you can find one. Also you COULD try flashing to a 3rd party firmware.
    (i always use tftp, just feels like its more reliable)

    I'm sure i have the correct bin file. The firmware version 1.05.2 download at Linksys official website. i had been use this bin file to flashing my AP back from EWRT firmware early - via tftp. they was no problem to flashing back from EWRT but Sputnik....

    > I'd try a different version of the firmware or even an oldver version if you can find one.

    i had problems flashing back fom talisman to anything else, only one that worked was a linksys firmware and then from there flashing it to my flavor of choice.

    as for which version is safe, any of the previous version are "safe", you arent planning on going to this version and sticking to it i assume. It would just be a means to get rid of the sputnik and then try loading your preferred firmware

    Wrong codepattern and loading an different codepattern.

    Maybe it expects a WRT54G codepattern.

    The Tarifa b019 and higher firmware have the WRT54G codepattern.

    But after flashing, it is possible to load any wrt54* firmware.

    Maybe something to try!

    the code pattern will most likely be different.

    try using a DDWRT generic firmware first.

    :cheer: It's working !! I success to removed Sputnik from my WRT54GSv4.

    Sputnik version 3.3.2.2 <http://www.sputnik.com/firmware-dl/firmware-linksys-wrt54gs-v4-3.3.2.2.bin> downgrade my WRT54GSv4 to v.3 firmware version 4.70.6. I think this is why i failed to flashing my AP back to defalut firmware (ver.1.05.2).

    Download the WRT54GSv3 firmware version 4.70.6 <http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Download_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1115417109974&packedargs=sku%3D1115416825841&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper> then flashing to the AP via tftp.

    Now my WRT54GSv4 is working fine with v.4.70.6 firmware. I w'll upgrade to the default v.1.05.2 firmware or flashing to a 3rd party firmware later.....

    :clap: Thanks all. :clap:

    Flash to the latest DD-WRT SP1 mini (beta) and from there flash it to v.1.05.2 firmware.

    Follow this guide: The "Right Way" to Flash Your WRT54G/GL/GS

    After you falsh to DD-WRT do not power cycle your router. Do not tocuh it for around 10 minutes (to be on the safe side). ;)
