    I have a WRT54GL v1.1 connected to a SpeedTouch 530 in Bridge mode. It works, although I cannot find these answers inside tutorials:

    - Why the yellow light always is on, despite I have "Disabled" inside Wireless administration?. It means the Wireless hardware is working? Can I turn-off Wireless by other means?

    - How can I revert DD-wrt v24 to the mini version?

    - How can I revert DD-wrt to Linksys software?

    - I have the Telnet Service "on" inside Administration but I cannot connect to 192.168.2.1. Any other option to check? (SOLVED!)

    thanks in advance!


    ** My config:

    Wan Setup
    -----------
    Connection type: Static IP.

    Wan IP: 192.168.1.64
    Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0

    - Why the yellow light always is on, despite I have "Disabled" inside Wireless administration?. It means the Wireless hardware is working? Can I turn-off Wireless by other means?
    I don't know what the yellow light is for. but yes you should have turned off your wireless access by selecting disable in "Wireless Network Mode" option. (sometimes unplug the antenna is the easiest, that shortens the signal to minimal even if you turned wireless on :)

    - How can I revert DD-wrt v24 to the mini version?
    Yes you can. Just flash the firmware again and you are set.

    - How can I revert DD-wrt to Linksys software?
    You can just put in the linksys firmware file the same way as how you upgrade your DD-WRT.

    that way the router would not be bricked?. There are a lot of pages talking about revert DD-wrt using strange procedures.


    and the last one: Is there some way to change the "403 forbidden access" when accesing my router IP by port 80 from internet?


    thanks for the help :)

    I don't consider changing from v24 to v24-mini a revert. as a matter of fact I've done that myself to free up some space to mount /jffs

    forbidden access? u forgot your router username/password? :p
