    I've just bought a WRT54G 2.0 and am trying to upgrade from the Linksys 2.04.4 firmware to HyperWRT 1.3. However, upon upgrading I can no longer connect to my ISP. My US ISP, DE Jazzd, uses PPTP over DSL. I can browse the admin pages via my wired PC and see all these neat features, but I can't use them! :(

    When I re-flash to the factory firmware, the problem goes away. Any ideas for me?

    (I'm experiencing the same problem with Satori 4.0G, but that's another story.)

    I tried that first. The install instructions on HyperWRT's site actually specify this. But no dice.

    Anyone else actually using PPTP?

    Any guesses as to why PPTP authentication works fine in the Linksys 2.04.4 firmware but not in HyperWRT 1.3? I've followed the steps very carefully as outlined on your site.

    I'd love to switch to a third-party firmware to see if this increases the wireless reliability with BitTorrent. Today, running BitTorrent on a wired client nukes the wireless clients within an hour or so.

    If you find anything and would want me to test, just PM or email me. Thanks!

    Does the new HyperWRT v1.4 fix this issue?

    I also need a PPTP connection to my ISP...

    I was able to get 1.3 working using PPTP. For me, the fix was changing the MTU setting from manual to auto.
