    Ok so I'm using a wrt45g using version 2.2, and I keep getting disconnected whenever I download more than maybe 10 megabytes.
    I found a forum here with a link to this download page:
    Now, I would like to download this and install it, but I have no idea how to make a .bin file work. I need step-by-step instructions.
    Please realise that when it ocmes to wireless networking I'm like a helpless little baby and don't know how to flash my router or reinstall my driver unless there is a click-through .exe wizard I can use.

    So any help would be immensely appreciated.
