    Can anyone tell me if it is pretty straight-forward to switch back to Linksys firmware from Thibor firmware? Any gotcha's that I need to look out for? I am having a weird wireless connection issue with my newly flashed WRT54GL and I want to see if going back to original firmware will resolve it.

    I found other posts that sound just like the issue I am having. The wireless signal strength seems to fluctuate wildly. One minute I will have full strength and then suddenly it will go to "poor" and then after a minute or so back to "excellent", etc, etc. Since I work from home and connect to my company via VPN, I HAVE to have a solid wireless connection. I have another laptop in the house that is connected wirelessly and it too is having the same problem. This NEVER happened before so I know that it is a router issue and not a laptop issue.

    Outside of this one issue, I have no problems and it seems (seat of the pants) that speed and robustness are better with Thibor than Linksys.

    Thanks for any assistance.

    There shouldn't be any gotcha's at all as Thibor's Hyperwrt firmware is close to the actually Linksys code (just better). I've flipped back and forth many times and I usually use Thibor's Hyperwrt to use as a base line.

    I am really bummed out because I wanted to use the Thibor firmware but I cannot work with the wireless issue I am experiencing. Just won't work for me.

    Then again, I may throw the Linksys firmware on and have the same experience. We'll see I guess.

    Thanks for the heads-up!

    If you describe the issue, maybe someone can help you resolve it.

    Are you using any kind of wireless security? Try switching off security and trying it. If that works, try using WPA2 Personal rather than WPA Personal. I had a similar issue when I "upgraded" my laptop wireless driver.
