    i found i bugs with this latest firmwire. Try to open the web management with opera. It will show something like "capture..." . This bugs occurs only in opera ( i try the windows and the linux version ) both show the same result.

    Firefox and Internet Explorer are not affected.

    sounds like a bug in opera then and not in the firmware:)

    Could be. But this bug doesn't appears with the previous firmwire. So, which support should I contact? :>

    Yeah I know, It does works well in firefox. The problem is, firefox in ubuntu got some problem with cpu usage. That's why i switch to opera.

    I rolled back to 3.37.6

    I tried 4.50.6 yesterday and initially it worked great. Today, none of my wireless adapters (Linksys WUSB54G and two SMC2870W bridges) could connect. They would see the router and try to connect, but it wouldn't go through. I am using WPA-TKIP and I'm wondering if that was part of the problem.

    I rolled back to the 3.37.6 firmware and my wireless devices are all happily connected again.

    Re: I rolled back to 3.37.6

    I had the same problem, but I eventually found out that it was because I backed up the settings of my older firmware and transfered it to the new firmware. I had to reset everything and set everything up again from scratch in the new firmware. So far, everything works great.

    Everything works great with the latest firmwire. Except for opera's bug in web management and my father's wusb54gs lost signal.

    It used to get signal in the current place. But since the upgrade, no more. I have to put it closer to the router.

    Tried it again

    I tried 4.50.6 again. I may have missed a step after flashing it the first time. After the first time I flashed it, I held the reset button for about 30 seconds, but I did not power it off with the button held in. The second time I went to 4.50.6, I did power down with the button in and I'm not having the connection problems any more.

    Opera is working fine for me with the router. Are you running the latest version of Opera? I'm using 8.01 and it's set to identify itself as Opera. It's been running 4.50.6 for a couple of days now without incident with WPA-PSK in use.

    I think I'll install one of the 3rd party firmwares after they merge in the changes from 4.50.6. I want to increase the power to the radio, my SMC bridges can see 5 other AP's in my neighborhood and they are only 2% to 5% weaker in signal strength from my WRT54GS.

    Has anyone see something like this?
    I'm using the latest version 8.01. I tried in linux and windows. Both produce the same result.

    I didn't understand before, I'm seeing the same thing with the WRT54GS.

    I don't think it's a bug with Opera, the router is setting the values of tne drop down list. I think the http server in the router is querying the browser type and and Opera falls outside of the brwoser types that it cares about.

    The only compatibility problems that I have seen with Opera have been with CSS, ActiveX, or code just doesn't understand that there are more browsers than IE and Mozilla-based.

    FWIW, you should be able edit the settings with Opera, the text in the dropdown lists may not look correct, but they send back the same values as they do in IE.
