    Hello all. I'm having a problem installing the Linksys WRT54G Wireless-G Broadband Router V5.0. I have all the cables connected properly and the router powered up. The front of the router shows the WLAN, port 1 and the Internet LEDs lit up OK. However, the Power LED is blinking. I checked the Linksys knowledge database to find out how to fix the problem. It said that this blinking is caused by the firmware not loading correctly. The remedy was to download the latest firmware for WRT54G V5.0 and the firmware Auto Upgrade Utility exe file to install the upgraded firmware. However, there was no Auto Upgrade Utility file listed on the download page. There was just a zip file which contains the .bin upgrade file. My question is this. How can I upgrade the firmware without the Auto Upgrade Utility file? Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers.

    also do not forget to put the wired network manually on 10half mode (i.e the lowest speed) while upgrading the firmware (after the upgrade you should put it back to auto or whatever the former was)...
