    Tried to access WRT54GS to do firmware update via IE ( and received "401 Unauthorized Authorization required." error. After several attempts gave up and held reset for 20+ seconds. No change. Is it possible that a hacker accessed the router and disabled the reset functionality? How do I regain control?

    Hard reset is thirty seconds. Try it again.

    Interesting, I tried a 40 second hard set to no aparent avail. Then I tried to access the router via my wi-fi laptop and it worked fine. Taking advantage of the situation I hard wired the laptop and did the firmware upgrade w/o issue. BTW, the amber Cisco light is now on.

    After the upgrade I tried to access with the hard wired desktop and still received the 401 error. Is there a setting on the desktop I'm missing?
