    Hi, I have a WRT54G v5, and it already has the 1.00.6 firmware on it.
    But the router always gives me a blank page after i've logged in, every few weeks, and i have to reset it to get the page to show properly, loosing all my settings at the same time.

    So i downloaded firmware 1.00.9. but when i choose to upgrade, it tells me firmware image invalid.

    the 1.00.6 firmware is 1.39MB, and the 1.00.9 is 1.37MB.

    what could be the problem?

    thanks in advance.

    cool, thanks.
    thought i just had to use the file that was originally downloaded.

    Why isn't it a zip file when i download it?

    yeah, i downloaded it a few times, it saved it only as "satellite", no extensions, thats it. Thats what i tried to use, so it didnt work.

    after reading your post, i just added the zip extension and unzipped, now its fine, did the upgrade, all is good so far.
