    I know this has been asked before and there is probably a how to, but, I can not find how to do this anywhere. I have searched and searched before asking in this forum.

    I installed the ddwrt and it is nice, but, I can not find how to reinstall the linksys firmware.

    Can someone point me to the right place on how to do this?

    Your help is greatly appreicated.

    1- Reset the nvram, meaning push the reset button behind the unit for 30 sec so that you clear all settings in the unit.

    2- Log in the router user/pass is root/admin

    3- Go to firmware update page, select the original Linksys firmware file. Select update firmware.

    4- When done do #1 again

    5- Welcome back to Linksys firmware

    6- Put your settings back

    7- Voila !

    Thank you so much blackcobra. I feel stupid now seeing how easy it is.

    But, I wanted to make sure so I don't brick the device.
