    Router = WRT54GS Version 6

    Current Firmware = 1.50.9

    I need to downgrade to 1.50.8. My wireless functionality is no longer functioning correctly after upgrading.

    After going through Linksys' 2nd level support, they agreed with me, however they do NOT have it available on their website. They pretty much told me I was out of luck.

    If anyone has this, could you please help?



    2 Mac Laptops connect wirelessly. They connect to the SSID properly, however the DHCP server on the router will NOT assign an IP address to either one. The previous router firmware did NOT have this issue and it worked flawlessly before.

    Unless I assign the computers a static ip, gateway, and DNS, I cannot get them online.

    You can find a copy here.

    F.Y.I. Linksys typically blocks downgrades for other firmwares so you may not be able to do it but it always worth the try.

    Edit: I almost forgot to mention you not alone with the Mac issues. If you're interested you could read a thread on Apple Discussion which should give you some pointers or some of my experience

    You Are The Man Disman_CA!!!!!

    Thank you so much!!!! Downgrading to the firmware link you gave me fixed it!!!! NO more DHCP problems. I can successfully connect my two Mac's wirelessly and they behave as desired once again!

    For the 2 hours I spent with Linksys support online (don't get me started with how painful that was...:) ), I should have just posted on this forum.

    Once again, thanks again (this was really starting to agitate me). Kudos to you and this site!
