    I just thought i would share my experience with you folks.
    I've been struggling with 2 WRT54GL and the How to configure HyperWRT 2.1b1 with WDS - Version 2.0. for many days. (http://www.genslernet.com/hyperwrt/)

    The system didnt work before i used only internet explorer, then it saved my configs etc.. firefox did not save anything in the startup script to the router.

    Now i have the system working 100% and the next project is bandwith limiting/load balancing without firefox. :)

    Firefox v1.5.0.1 works fine for me with a WRTSL54GS running Thibor 14.

    From what I read it looks like things work with Firefox now. My experience with using Firefox for upgrade on a WRT54G v1.1 was not good. I was using the version og Firefox previous to the latest, don't remember the version right now, but am currently using Firefox 1.5.
    What happened to me was a "hang" during a upgrade thru the web on a ethernet connected PC running XP with latest SPs. End result was a bricked WRT54G. Luckily I got it back following the steps on this site. Did have to resort to the shorting of pins 15 and 16 though. The tftp method would not work as the WRT54G never answered to a ping of until the pin short. Thought I was going to have to buy another one. (Which I did anyway, but for other reasons)
    Since that experience I have been leary of using Firefox to make any changes. Once bitten twice as shy.

    ON the PLUS SIDE. Thanks Thibor for a great 3rd party firmware!!. In the past I was a dd-wrt fan, that is until I loaded yours. Much more stable, would need to restart about every 3 to 4 days, and I did not need all the extra features that dd-wrt has.

    I've been using Firefox for quite sometimes now and have no problem with it. Being Linux fan, firefox is the only browser I have to set my router, have startup script working with no problem.

    I am having the same problem with Firefox on one PC but not on another PC with the exact same version of Firefox. Must be a particular setting or extension that's hosing it up, but I can't figure out what.
