I just bought a wrt54v5, and the first thing I did after installing the router was update its firmware. After I updated it, I hard resetted it. However, my grip was slippery and I did not hold the reset button for as long as I should. Nevertheless, the modem resetted and the new firmware version loaded. However, it it didn't seem that neat, and the settings page (accessing 192.168.1.1) was quite bumpy, some windows would not open, and after saving the settings, the "Settings Successful" page would not load. Therefore, I hard resetted the router again. When I went on to reconfigure it, I had the same problems. Then I decided to perform a power cycle. When I turned everything on again, it was all perfect and the router is running like a charm ever since. So I have a question..can I have damaged the router by hard resetting it 3 times in a row, only performing a power cycle at the end of the 3 hard reset? Its all working great now, but i'm a perfectionist and I am quite worried!
