    Hi, I'm new to this forum.

    I just purchased a linksys wrt54gl today. I ran the cd and followed the instructions selecting english as my language, but once the installation is complete I noticed the Gui was german when I ran in my browser. Is there anyway of converting it back to the english version? or should I refund the router?

    Thanks, help appreciated. :)

    reseting the router back to defaults using the reset button should do it

    afaik the language is built into the firmware. if the reset does not fix the problem you'll need to download the english version and upload teh firmware to the router.

    Thanks for the reply, I tried both ways already and still the same problem. I restarted my router back to default settings already and also upgraded the firmware. The firmware version is v4.30.9 which is the latest one for the wrt54gl, but I'm still experiencing the same problem. After I upgraded the firmware, it said something like "update successful" in english but once I get back to the main interface screen it's still german.

    I read that if you type in in your browser it should allow you to change your language settings, but I get an 404 error instead. It was used for the wrt54gs router instead though.

    Any other way of changing the browser interface?

    Thanks for the help, appreciate it.

    I have the WRT54GL model, and ,surprisingly, I have the exact same problem as well. I've tried reseting definitions and flashing with the newest firmware (found no language-specific version). When that didn't help I started searching for answers online and found only refferences to a "language.htm" section in the router's gui - but all i got was a "404 not found" error. Also, all the other GUI pages I've seen are .asp, not .htm, but a "language.asp" page does not exist either.
    I have no Linksys tech support in my country to call, and this problem isn't serious enough to require a hardware replacement, but unfortunately I cannot read german... Is it possible that something this simple cannot be manually fixed or not have a known answer?
    All comments are welcomed, of course. :thumbup:

    I don't want to be impatient, but I'd be happy for any kind of response. My problem is that I have no linksys tech support in my country and I can't seem to solve this myself. As long as I can't read my router's german security settings and Logs I have no real use for its firmware. I might as well install an open source firmware that can actually display english menus.
