    Do you have to have the firmware 3.01.3 in order to use HyperWRT version 2? I have version 2.04.xx. If I have to upgrade my firware, the only offering on the Linksys site is 3.03.6. Will this work with HyperWRT 2.0?

    Final question, will WEP actually work with HyperWRT 2.0? The extender and the router never synched with the Linksys firmware with WEP installed.

    In case anyone reads this, I threw caution to the wind and installed the latest Linksys firmware 3.03.6 with HyperWRT 2.0 with no problems at all on my WRT54G. Seems to work perfectly.

    you'll only have one or the other firmware installed at any one time. if you use the standard linksys firmware you won't have hyperwrt.

    It works fine. I just bought a WRT54G version 2.2 and flashed it to Linksys' 3.03.6 firmware and then flashed it to HyperWRT version 2 with no problems. Never reset the router or anything between firmware upgrades and it worked/works great!

    You're on the safer side if you make a ~30sec-reset before and after the flash of a new firmware.

    thats correct. if updating from a new version ie to there will be alot of changes, and thereofre the router should be reset by pressing the reset button for 30 seconds. this will then rest the firmware to factory defaults, and if any new settings are then in place will reset them too. failure to rest after upgrading can cause you problems. it is alos recommended not to use an old backup.cfg from one firmware, and restore this old cfg to a new firmware.
