    Hello All!

    I have a WRT54G v4, the ping hack doesn't work to enable the boot_wait. The latest dd-wrt doesn't work w/ the v4. yet.

    Question: does it have a web gui screen?
    Question: What other custom firmware can I use?

    Thx

    the only 3rd party firmware you can use is hyperwrt.

    thanks for the clarification.

    Is openwrt a command line only, or does it have a gui? also, is there a page you can point me to with a list of features contained in openwrt?

    Thanks. :)

    OpenWRT has lots of features but it is not Noob friendly.. I would suggest waiting a bit.. Sounds like early v4 support will be in the next DD-WRT build but that will be an alfa, not something a Noob would want to run as well.

    You might want to stick witht e standard one or HyperWRT as it adds a handfull of usefull tweaks to the standard interface.

    yep, i realize that, but hyperwrt doesn't do bridging like i want it to, and i need this asap... but if i must wait, i'm sure i can figure out something in the mean time :)

    Ping hack

    thx for the link. I got it. Tried it, it failed. Had to reflashed it. The Ping hack doesn't work w/ v4.20.7? How else can I turn on the boot wait=on. That's why it' failed.

    What about downgrading a firmware, but which one will work v4 router?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Sure did, it works on v4.20.7. I didn't have to short the pins out! My thing is I need to get the boot wait=on. In order to flash it with the dd-wrt. I'm assuming that's why it's failing. I followed the instructions. It still failed w/ the new 23beta one.

    the beta version works well on v4 routers. i flashed 2 with it here and no problems so far

    possibly you wont use the released beta. the alpha versions wont support it

    doubled checked?

    I thought maybe I used the wrong version. So, I tried it again!

    1. I used dd-wrt.v32_voip_wrt54g
    2. reset to factory defaults
    3. upload

    Now, it starts it upload process and fails. screen 1, click "continue" then i'm taken back to the firmware update screen. The progress box is still moving. Two mins later a box pops up "upgrade failed"

    I have flashed a V4 router myself and works just fine.

    Try this:

    1. Go to http://dd-wrt.devil-strike.net/index.php?dir=v23/beta/19-9-05/
    2. Download the Standard Beta version
    3. Flash your wrt thru the gui (Administration - Upgrade Firmware)

    Remember that you need to flash your router using a wired connection.

    Good luck!

    nothing worked. So I shorted out the pins. tftped it up to the router and now it's installed.

    i have 2 flashed routers... make sure you press the reset button for 30 seconds and unplug it while holding down the button. Plug it back in about 10 seconds later.
