    Just an administrative thing Avenger. You have HyperWRT 2.1b1_GS labeled as 2.0b1_GS on the download page at www.hyperwrt.org. The correct file downloads however..
    Do you have the MD5 checksum for this file. I didn't notice it if it was.

    Good wrk, Avenger20. Keep it up.

    Not seeing this one... Could you give me a direct link?

    Didn't put up MD5 as downloads are from trusted source sourceforge.net, but if more people want them, I'll put them back.

    Hmmm. I can't find the mislabeled 2.1b1 now, avenger. Could have sworn there were two 2.0b1s before. My bad.

    No problem with the MD5.

    Thanks again.

    I have now been using this firmware for about 5 hours and it worked great until know. My internet connection died and I tryd to login to the router via and I couldt!!! I looked at my router and saw my Power led flash, it flashed in about 3-4 min, it did reboot and still I was unable to login. So I pulled the powercord and now I am up and running again. Just me who had that issue?

    did you hard reset the router when you first upgraded?
  15. jlw

    jlw Network Guru Member

    No I did not.
    Hard reset?

    Resetting the Router:

    After the upgrade is complete and to make sure that the new firmware is properly loaded, you must reset your router by holding in the Reset button located on the back of the unit for 30 seconds. This will erase all of your router’s settings. To reconfigure any custom options that you may have set up, be sure to return to the web-based configuration utility located at (the default IP address).

    After completing all steps, your router’s firmware will be upgraded successfully.

    Has been done successfully!! THANKS HEAPS

    In regards to the hardware reset Linksys does not actually mention this as a requirement for a successful firmware upgrade; or I am wrong??

    What I do usually; after I finish the upgrade I save the setting then do the hardware reset and upload the saved settings back.... do not know if that is good enough??

    Guys be careful if you want to save setting not to upload settings from previous firmware as this might ruin your router.

    Is a hardreset the same as pull out the power cord?
  20. sillygoose

    sillygoose Network Guru Member

    Doesn't that defeat the purpose of doing the hard reset? You want to clear the settings but by saving them and reloading them you are just putting them back after the reset. I think you need to manually put your settings back in after the hard reset.
  21. gertvdijk

    gertvdijk Network Guru Member

    No, since it will not erase the settings. A hardware reset as described above will.

    Do not know!! It is really interesting; it worth calling Linksys and find out unless someone's got the answer...

    I might found a bug with the new firmware!!

    My log does not seem to be working in both directions incoming & outgoing.....

    Can you please find out guys whether yours is working or not??

    No it is not.

    A hard reset is... while the router is powered on, press and hold the reset button on the back of the router for 20 to 30 seconds. This clears out all user specified settings/values and reverts to "FACTORY DEFAULT SETTINGS." All customizations are lost.

    Hello everyone,

    I'm really glad to inform you that the problem I had described on HyperWRT 2.0 Bug list thread with SSH sessions that kept closing after being idle for sometime is TOTALLY FIXED, as it stopped happening after I upgraded to HyperWRT 2.1b1 and now I can leave them idle as long as I want :)

    Thanks Avenger & Linksys. :)

    Hi men

    Avenger first your work is really fine many thx

    I have few questions on the last update
    I'm not really good in english so i'm not sure to understand this:

    What is
    It mean you have remove this?:

    I ask this because i use HyperWRT 2.0b4 and with 4096 connections my lan network is really faster so if the new version you decrease this paramters i prefer keep the 2.0b4.
    Don't know if WRT54G v2 can to manage more connections but if it's possible could you increase again the maximum concurrent connection to the max possible for the WRT54G?

    And could you add 1 option for active "TCP Timeout has been optimized
    " for the router not instable (could you descibe these instability?)

    Sorry for my bad english

    Have a good day @+

    Hard reset NOT the same

    Is a hardware reset the same as disconnecting the power cord?


    A hardware reset is as previously stated, pressing and holding the reset button for 30 seconds.

    My Download Speed of P2P getting slow

    can i run the following command at the latest hyperwrt ?
    iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -j SNAT --to yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy

    i know for sure that is not possible at v2.0 cause of the version of iptables.

    2.1b slower?

    I upgraded to the new release this afternoon and noticed a considerable drop in performance when browsing. I thought I was just imagining it but I reflashed the previous release (2.0) and it got back up to speed.

    I am wired so it was not a wireless issue.

    I had previously installed Alchemy 1.0 and noticed a dramatic improvement with HyperWRT in wired mode. But the new release just slowed things down.

    Another odd thing I encountered was that the upgrade somehow retained a policy that I had deleted. That policy blocked complete web-access for one pc on my network and even though it did not appear in the policy list, v2.1b did not let that pc out. I restored to 2.0 and that pc was able to get access once again.

    I'll stick to 2.0.

    when will there be a new version?

    will there be one ever?
  36. Chuck_IV

    Chuck_IV Network Guru Member

    There are new versions, but they are from others who have taken up the development. I believe Avenger hasn't had much time to continue work right now.

    If you have a "G" router, you will want Tofu's version, which you can get from here: http://www.hyperwrt.org/forum/viewtopic.php?id=704

    and if you have a "GS" router, you will want Thibor's version, which you can get from here: http://bagupremier.free.fr/wrt/GS/ (201105 version is latest, as of this posting)
