    Hi guys.

    I just got the WRT54G a couple of days ago. Tried upgrading the firewall for 3 days but all I got was "Upgrade are failed" (nice spelling btw!). After finding this site, I finally understood that I needed a different firmware since I had V.5.

    The reason for me upgrading was that my internett connection was cut every 20 to 30 minutes, so I figured new firmware would help.
    But mostly it was because I am only able to spezify 10 port range's to open under the "games and applications" settings. After the upgrade (now running 1.00.4), I still only have 10 fields to insert settings in.
    Is it supposed to be only 10 ??

    In Norway we are allowed to send back produkts for up to 14 days after we buy them. They can be returned for a full refund with no questions asked.
    Should I return my WRT54G V.5 and get something else ? All they have is V.5 so I can't get an new router with lower version number.
    I was thinking about maybe getting a Billion 7202G Wireless ADSL/2 router. Then I can skip my first DSL router (which now connects to the WRT54G) and run the external line straight into the Billion router and right into my computer (don't know if this router is any good thou')

    the V5 is a lemon, i doubt the other one could be any worse. preferably you would want a wrt54g of any version other than 5, but if you cant get it, go for anything other than ther V5 :) (model, brand, etc)
