I just discovered this site lately after having problem with my router wrt54g v5. looking for some help in regards fixing frequent loss of internet connection even the laptop connected to the router wirelessly. Looks like its a very common problem with latest wrt54g. tried all possible ways to fix it and gave up. So I decided to look for earlier versions of wrt54g's and found a version 3.0 in our local radioshack for $39 after MIR. So I'm just wondering is there any thread in this forum on a step by step instructions on upgrading 3rd party firmware. I'm leaning towards hyperwrt firmware. I dont want my router to end up as a brick. Any help will be highly appreciated.
