    This is bad juju for me so far...after the "upgrade" it renamed the model to WRT54GL...it is a WRT54GV3...linksys has no explanation...doh!

    I noticed that too so I looked at the Firmware for the WRT54GL and it seems to have the same features. I kinda looks like Linksys is writing the same firmware for both of these devices.

    I was using this firmware but just upgraded to HyperWRT Thibor 15c last night. It rocks! The only thing I didn't like about it is the fact that it says it's now a Linksys Broadband Wireless G with Speedbooster when it's only a WRT54G v1.1, but hey, that's no big deal.

    I am on the verge of jumping to HyperWRT Thibor 15c

    I was using the Linksys Firmware 4.30.5 and was not having any problems. I started reading up on Thibor's Firmware and was impressed with what it can do. Even though I was not having any problems I upgraded to Thibor's and I'm loving it. This is my first time using a 3rd party firmware and I don't regret it. The beauty is that if you're not completely satisfied with it you can go back to the Linksys Firmware.

    Yeah I upgraded to this new FW this morning ang guess what? Now my I can't connect to internet. WTF? I followed standard procedures I'm just not sure what went wrong. Any ideas? I was running "ddwrtpsp4d" which worked except I would have to reboot router every few days which got old.

    Mine's "this" much above being a brick.

    In an effort to have a local copy of the firmware for my brand new (and unused WRT54GL.v4 that I just got, I did the download from the Linksys website. Gee, I clicked on 4.30.2 and I got 4.30.5! Okay, they must have fixed something.

    As the return key completed it's journey to the bottom of its travel my brain screamed CHIT!!!!

    I knew I'd made a stupid mistake. Up, the firmware upgrade (*COUGH*) broke the unit. It now is close to unusable, the setup tabs #1,3&4 have disappeared and the DDNS is more than slightly confused.

    I called the help line. (I think that hurt more than the firmware upgrade to begin with). I don't mind the outsourcing to provide 24x7 support as long as the droids do more than read a damn script!. I got "Oh yes, we'll take care of that." said to me way too many times.

    I finally got someone in Cisco to send me the x.2 firmware but it still hasn't solved the problem. It behaves the same as the x.5 but the x.2 includes the upnp (or whatever the acronym is) fix so it's not the original.

    I'm gonna try some of the other ones available to see what becomes of the brick now.

    I noticed the same thing too...it renamed the router to WRT54GL, which originally is a WRT54G v4. So from now on, when downloading new firmware, which product should we look under WRT54GL v1.0 or WRT54G v1.0-4.0? Will it even matter?
