    Help With WRT54GSv4 and DD-WRT

    I am trying to upgrade my WRT54GSv4 with the DD-WRT firmware. I am following the instructions I found here http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/WRT54G_v4_Installation_Tutorial and still can't get it to work. I click upgrade and I get a message saying upgrade failed and when I go back to it's still the linksys firmware.

    Make sure you are using the mini generic file to flash it with. If you get the upgrade failed message then I believe you must unplug the router and plug it back in before you can try again (or you'll keep getting upgrade failed messages).

    tried that, still no go. Any other suggestions?

    Try with the GS version, not the generic.
    If it is no go, then try with tftp.
    Be advise that there is usualy a good reason for the upgrade to fail.

    The generic didn't work either. Could there be something wrong with the Linksys firmware? It says I'm running v1.50.8 on the firmware. Is that correct even though I have v4 of the router?
