    (As someone new to the forum, I'm going to ask a question that may have been answered before. I couldn't find it using the search function, so here goes...)

    How many people here have successfully flashed Thibor 15c to a WRT54GL v. 1.1 and are using it now? How is it performing? The download site isn't specific re: v. 1.0 vs. v. 1.1, so I'm reluctant to flash it to my router without some guidance.

    Go ahead flash it! I have done a dozen or so of these flashes and not one problem. I use it on 54gs router. Works so much bette rthan stock!

    Where in Central IL are you?

    Just West of Champaign-Urbana. You say you're running Thibor 15c on a GS? I have a WRT54GS v. 5 that I have as a backup (doesn't perform very well at all, even with the latest firmware) that I understood couldn't have ANY third-party software flashed to it. Did you do anything special, or just use the router's internal controls to flash it?

    i'm close to you. :wink:

    Yes, I have WRT54GS v2.1 flashed with hyperwrt. Works great.
    Your v5 can't be flashed with hyper but might be able to be flashed DD-WRT micro, i'm not sure though.

    I don't do anything special. Here is what I do:
    1) Get into the router via 192.168.1.1
    2) go to the administration tab
    3) go to firmware upgrade
    4) select correct hyperwrt firmware
    5) flash it
    6) once flashed, make sure you clear NVRAM
    7) done and enjoy

    Thibor15c runs extremely well on a GL. You could also try Tomato, dd-wrt, or basically whatever firmware will run on a WRT54xx. (I'm not sure, but I think you get a GL ONLY as v1.1).

    Any v5 (G/GS) can only run dd-wrt micro. It has only 2MB flash space, thus cannot load any of the other firmware which are sized over 3MB. The flashing of a v5 is also not straightforward. Check out the procedure on www.dd-wrt.com, and FOLLOW IT TO THE LETTER.

    above when I said I have done a dozen or so of these flashes, all but 1 was with a GL. I highly recommend it.

    I have it on my WRT54GL ver 1.1 and Thibor works quite well.

    Thanks for the info- I got in some practice by de-bricking a WRT54G v.3.1 that had died on my daughter. Thibor 15c was flashed to it after recovery via shorting pin #16 on the flash chip per the instructions in the FAQ section on de-bricking. Running the network now, working fine, GL to follow.

    I am not sure what the differences are between the GL versions 1.0 and 1.1, but I have not had any issues with using Thibor 15c on my GL version 1.1

    On the main site for Thibor, Carl had listed both versions 1.0 and 1.1 but I have noticed that the mirror site only has version 1.0 of the GL listed.

    So do not worry about if it will work with the GL version 1.1................ It does.

    No, you can't...at least with Thibor.

    The v7 can only run a special version of dd-wrt AFAIK.
     
  13. ladysman

    ladysman LI Guru Member

    Correct, the micro version.

    Sorry but Thibor 15c will not work on a WRT54G version 7.

    Starting with version 5 of the WRT54G and GS Linksys is no longer using Linux on these routers, they are using VxWorks. Also they halfed the amount of ram in these routers.

    If you want a WRT54G router that still uses Linux then get a WRT54GL, where the "L" denotes Linux. Or if you can find a version 4 or older.

    NO! DD-WRT does NOT support version 7! I wish it did, but it doesn't

    WRT54GS as a bridge...

    Hi.

    I am trying to use Linksys WRT54GS as a bridge. I have followed the thread and tried to do a firmware upgrade. However the upgrade keeps failing.

    My router uses firmware version 7.50.0.

    Any ideas?

    Regards...

    Can you please guide me through the flashing way or method and then point me to a url to download the firmware.

    Regards...
