    Can't update firmware wrtg54gl

    I'm trying to update the standard linksys firmware of my WRT54GL router to Hyperwrt Thibor 15c. But wathever I try I keep getting Wrong Code Pattern error.

    Things I tried:

    - Disable firewall
    - Setting network adapter to 10mbit half duplex
    - setting ip-address to static
    - Hard reset before update attempt
    - update to dd-wrt mini generic firmware first (same error)
    - update with Windows XP tftp

    Do I miss something? Because I'm running out of ideas.

    Try re-downloading the firmware again. It is possible that something got corupted in the download.

    Also anytime that you do a firmware update do this with a wired connection only because a wireless connection can drop and hose the router.

    I re-downloaded the firmware, but it didn't work. I also tried updating the router via another computer. Still the same error.

    I managed to update to the dd-wrt mini generic firmware via the update menu of the router it self. But the Hyper-wrt Thibor firmware still doesn't work.

    he is supposed to have a GL...

    Having a version of the GL that is not compatible with 3rd party firmware would be somewhat contradictory.

    Douma, can you verify your model number?
