    hi all :)
    i'm a new user of a WRT54GS V4 and i have make search on the FAQ forum and net to find more information about the first firmware upgrade from the official linksys firmware and the DD-WRT. but without success

    in the download section i can found this

    in the hwsupport.txt file.
    but what is the mini version? the file found here: in dd-wrt.v23 and mini directory

    but which file?
    the generic? the GS or GSV4? i think the GSV4 but after flashing this version i would like to use the web interface upgrade and the txt tell i need to use the "included generic binaries" but what are these binaries? in dd-wrt.v23 and standard directory

    the xxxV23_generic.bin or the wrt54gsv4.bin?

    thanks for your help.
    greetings from france

    find out which you have a wrt54gv4 or GSv4 by figuring out if you have speedbooster. if you have speedbooster you have a GSv4 so use that binary *.bin then use the webinterface to update to the next version.

    Personally i have a wrt54gsv4 and i just went straight to the dd-wrt.v23_wrt54gsv4.bin and it worked for me.

    but you do so at your own risk. also note that i had to reset to factory defaults before and after the flash

    ok thank you for these infos but i can flash this bin directly with the linksys official firmware or i need to use the "mini" binary before?

    The snippet below is from BrainSlayer's hwsupport.txt.
    If you're upgrading from the GUI, relax and use the generic version.

    just another question:
    i would like to use Rflow collector but i can't find the Rflow configuration page on the GUI.
    can you help me?
    edit: ok i used the wrong version (mini) is a lite version without rflow :)
    thanks all for your help
