I had a problem with my WRT54GS v2 and today decided that I have to do something about it. So I installed the HyperWRT Thibor 14 firmware and I have to say I love it. It's packed with features and greatly enhances the usability of the router. It's hard to believe how many features are actually customizable in the router and that Linksys doesn't even let you change/set by default... Anyway, I have an Intel 2200BG wireless card in my laptop. Intel and Linksys together came up with the "smart wireless" feature that is supposed to make connecting to the right router easier. And it really would if it actually worked. The Intel wireless management utility detects the router and then asks me to give it the router's Ownership ID and Device ID, which are both printed on the bottom of the router. When I do that and click next to continue with the network configuration wizard, the authentication of the ownership and device ID just loops indefinitely, and I get this message that if the authentication fails, I should look at my Linksys documentation. How helpful! Screenshot: What can I do to fix this? EDIT: Two more things. How can I change my password here on the forums? I don't see that option anywhere. Secondly, I was thinking.. does flashing the router firmware mess with the ownership and device ID's? Because that would explain why I'm having this problem.
