    Hey guys, Ive been reading up and it seems like the Thibor 15c firmware is for me.

    Ive been having crap loads of problems lately with bittorrent (azureus and bitcomet). I got the latest official from Linksys for a WRT54G V4 and it seems to work well even without port forwarding, but I guess it eventually succumbs and internet comes to a crawl or dies completey. Bittorrent will download happily, but browsing or anything else stops.

    Anyway, here are my questions:

    1) What are the setups to flashing from official? How do I clear the NVRAM? What is the correct ways to do it and additional tips? I read the Thibor site and it didnt mention anythign else besides not using wifi to upgrade and dont do anything when its updating and renew my DHCP before I upgrade. Is there anything else? I tried searching here, but to no avail.

    2) When I upgrade to Thibor, how easily can I upgrade back to official?

    3) Lastly, if I do somehow brick and try de-bricking it and it doesnt work, can they tell that I tried to flash it with 3rd party? If i try to call tech support or something.

    1- Hold the reset button on the back of your router for 30 seconds - read the manual it's in there how to reset the router.

    2- Easily - there is an option do do a firmware upgrade in that software.

    3- You have a v4 router - the chances you will brick are practically nill - unless you some how use the wrong firmware....but it's easy to debrick if you somehow do, just read the tuts on the net, then you can reload the linksys firmware again. - but the chances you will brick are pretty remote.
