    I'm looking for a place to get v3.03.6 firmware for a WRT54G. Anybody have a link?

    The answer

    I guess, I'll just have to answer my own question... In my quest to find firmware that is truly compatible with Xbox Live, I finally got a response and a link from linksys... Part of the email is attached below. The only bad part is that it doesn't work. Yup, it seems the router won't let me downgrade from my existing 4.something or other firmware. Eh, at least i tried...

    That firmware version is not available on our website; we only have the latest firmware posted on the website. However, we do have a copy of that firmware file from our FTP site. You may download that from this link: ftp://ftp.linksys.com/pub/network/ or you may download the exact firmware file from this link: ftp://ftp.linksys.com/pub/network/WRT54GV3.0_3.03.6_US_code.exe. After you downloaded the file, you may now load that firmware file on your router. To properly load that firmware you may follow the procedures below.

    1. Open Internet Explorer and type in
    2. Leave the username blank and type admin for password, all in lowercase. If admin is not accepted, try your commonly-used passwords.
    3. Then you will be on the router’s Web Base Utility click on the Administration Tab.
    4. Click on Firmware Upgrade then Click on Browse.
    5. Browse or look for the *.bin file then click on Open.
    6. Hit Upgrade button. (Just wait for the message “You have successfully upgraded the firmwareâ€).
    7. Click Continue.

    After each upgrade, you have to hard reset the router so that the firmware will be properly loaded. Please refer to the procedures below in performing a hard reset on the device.

    How to perform a hard reset on the device:

    1. Press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds, after that
    2. Unplug the power; keep holding down the reset button for another 30 seconds
    3. Then plug back the power and keep holding down the reset button for 30 seconds, after that
    4. Release the reset button.

    Performing a hard reset will wipe out all the settings on the router.
