I've been a user since tarifa009 for my WRT54G v1.0 which was purchased 2003 X'mas. The reason why I chose to use 3rd party firmware since I needed static DHCP I.P. and extra port forwarding ability. I upgraded to Tarifa029 once it launched and it worked flawlessly with my WRT54G. I backed up my config every time when I made changes on configuration. Today, my 35 months old WRT54G died (not bricked since not even one single LED lit up). It died in the morning when I was RDP'ing to my site from remote. I then happened to find someone selling a WRT54G v3.1 online and I picked it up right the way. From v2.2 and up, WRT54G came with a SESbuttom to provide an easy setup. Other than SESetup funuction and panel lights looked different, everything else looked to same to my v1.0 router. I plugged the power to the new router (obviously the power adapter is different) and it's a 12V DC power supply versus 5V DC supply to my dead router. I then flashed it right the way to Tarifa029 without having problem. I then was trapped in restoring the config. It kept loading uploading the backup config on the Management page. And waited for 10 mins, I stopped it manually. This had been done twice without success. I had to config my router from sractch. jchuit, are u aware of this? Anyone else had the same issue?
