    I had some issues with connectivity so tried flashing back to linksys firmware after using Thibor15c. The flash went ok but after rebooting and logging in to the WRT54GL, the default layout (color scheme) is available but there is no data on the page. ie. no links are the top menu, no words except for a few characters of the alphabet.

    Any ideas?

    Can anyone tell me the exact URL of the firmware upgrade page so I can try the flash again?

    What about the URL for the restore to default?

    ok, figured out how to use tftp.exe and reflashed and all is well again. Let's see how long the new linksys firmware will last.

    just in case this will help someone, here is where you pick up tftp.exe to flash your linksys firmwares.


    This methods seems a lot quicker than the browser method. Also, used firefox to do a flash and it resulted in the above error (original post). Back to using IE for future flashing.

    Hope this can help someone.

    Always remember to do a 30 second hard reset before and after each flash. Most times that will solve any issues you may have.
