    Ok, first I downloaded and ran: WRT54GV4.0_4.20.7_US_code%2C1.exe. My WRT54G is at v1.00.0. When I click upgrade, I get the message "Invalid code pattern".

    Went back to linksys and downloaded WRT54GV4.0_4.20.7_US_code%2C1.zip and befsx41_Tftp.exe, extracted the bin file from the zip file and ran befsx41_Tftp.exe. Again, when I click upgrade, I get the message "Invalid code pattern".

    FInally, I tried going through a browser to do the upgrade from the router using the bin file, "Upgrade failed".

    Help! Please!!!

    Did you do a hard reset before you tried to load the new firmware? Hold the reset button down for 30 seconds and try it again. Use IE as your browser for loading the new firmware.

    Oh, and the hardware apparently is WRT54G V5.0.

    Ok, problem appears to have been that I didn't realize the v5 designation on the linksys website was referring to the hardware version. Downloaded WRT54Gv5_v1.00.2_US_Code.bin and that did work.

    Thanks!!!
