    I've got the blinking power light issue & the 30/30/30 reset & ping doesn't work. Linksys Live Chat, download page & phone call at 10p per minute didn't help so I need your help.
    Will the any v1 - v3 firmware work & if so does anyone have these illusive zip files please or know where to find them?

    I have a WRT54GS v1.1. I'm not sure if it'll work with your version 1, though. Here's firmware WRT54GS_3.37.2_US_code

    Here's the tftp.exe utility as well

    OK, Thanks I'll try it when I get confirmation it's fine to use it I suppose or if I'm feeling brave, but thanks for giving me the option, its much appreciated.

    According to the Linksys Forum, the latest firmware for v1 is v4.71.4 which I remember I've had as well in my WRT54GS v1.1.

    Anyways here is v4.71.4

    HTH :)

    Thanks Toink & sorry for the delay in replying. I'm not getting good ping opportunities as the best "Packets received" are 2 out of 4, 50% or mainly 75% loss in the very short 2 sec reset window that TFTP needs to upload the firmware.
    As I've got no Web GUI to the router is there another way to extend the rest window to give TFTP a longer time other that powering down using 30/30/30 rest after ever TFTP retry?

    Have you tried pinging your router's ip address 'ping -t' while you turn it on and then run the TFTP.exe utility (set the flash retry to 100 or higher)?

    Will v4.71.4 firmware work on my VERSION 1 WRT54GS?
