Hello all, I'm new at this networking so if this questions has been asked before, please forgive me. I aplogize for this being so long. I have a WRT54G and I tried to do the satori 4.0 firmware update. I did download the proper version for my router which is a v1.0. I followed all the instruction from sveasoft to the letter. I got the message "failed upgrade" or something to the effect. Got the red diag light flashing and all. So then I tried to do a recover from failed upgrade attempt using sveasoft instuctions. Here is were I ran into problems: When it came time to ping the router it came up with the message no destenation or something. Basically could not ping the router. So I found out that if I changed the LAN settings to "static IP" and used this address: 192.168.1.2 and subnet 255.255.248.0 I could ping the router. However I had to do several pings at the same time activating the linksys firmware utilite to actually get the router to flash with the linksys firmware. Now everything is supposed to look right and operate the right way as if nothing ever happened. So I thought I would for good measure reflash the router with the same linksys firmware upgraded to make sure everything took. ( I also did a reset function several times) It didn't work so I had to do the whole above outline steps again. And now it won't take any firmware version unless it is the updated linksys and even that takes about 2 hours of fiddling to get it to work. What did I do wrong? Can I reflash with the same firmware? I hope you guys can help. I was looking foward to using the sveasoft firmware but as of right now it doesn't look good for the home team. Please help! Tankermax :?
