    So I acquired a WRT54GL v1.1 from someone and he told me that he tried to flash the router to tomato and after flashing it, now I cannot log in to the default gateway or get into the firmware page...

    I can ping the router through the cmd no problem and it responds but the default gateway address will not let me into the router...I can also access the internet with it but I just can't do anything about the firmware or change any options

    Now my question it, is there anyway to uninstall the firmware and flash it back to the default linksys firmware based on my problem?

    I saw a tutorial somewhere but I can't seem to find it now but when I did it kinda didn't work for me so I don't know but I would really like to use this as a wireless bridge for my 2Wire 2701HG-B

    Then again...

    I have (2) Ethernet ports on my mobo and if I only connect my 2701HG to the WRT54GL to my mobo without a direct connect from the 2Wire to my mobo, I cannot go online at all...

    I can still ping it and it receives an IP address but no internet access

    Use the reset button to reset the router to defaults. Hold it in for 30 seconds.

    Then log into username root password admin

    Tomato is much nicer than Linksys firmware. I would advise you to stick with Tomato.

    I did a flash once and the web gui within the firmware seemed to have crashed. I thought i bricked my router but fixed it by killing the httpd process. Try the following:

    1) telnet into router:
    telnet 191.168.x.x (then input user name and password)
    2) Type the following:
    killall httpd
    cd /www
    httpd -h /www

    Hopefully you can now access the gui. Tomato is great and the help on this forum is invaluable.
