    I had a WRT54G v2 router for about a year now.
    Ever since I got It the site survey never shows anything.
    I have tried alchemy 6.5 to 7a and DD-WRT V22-prefinal3.1 and site survey will only shows the column titles and just blank grey below it.
    Sometimes it crashes the router and then for me to access it again I have to unplug and replug in the router to be able to get to
    I have tried it with wireless on, off, in client mode, in ap mode, encryption on and off, from a ethernet connection, and from the wireless connection, and still site survey shows nothing.
    The router does work in client mode as i can connect to an open linksys router's internet connection fine, and works in ap mode as laptops can connect to my router fine.

    Does anyone know why this is happening or what is going on with it??

    I will try both of those as soon as i get back home after 9, but I do not think it will work.

    Has anyone else encountered these problems??

    just tried the new dd-wrt and still blank site survey???

    Alchemy 1.0 wouldnt even work right with my internet connection, but it still did not show anything under site survey.

    Does anyone have a WRT54G v2 router and would like to recommend a firmware that the site survey works for them.
    This is my exact router if you need me to be more specific:
    CDF5 = WRT54G v2.0 = ADM6996L Chip

    This just does not make sense my roommates laptop sees 6 APs, but my router shows nothing.
