    i am on dd-wrt 23 sp2 but want to revert back to the original firmware -- can anyone please help me get one?
    I will eagerly look forward to replies on this page.

    Why don't you try the homepage of the manufacturer?
    Or did you and saw no specific v1.1. version listed and assumed that the available firmware didn't fit? As far as I can tell from the version number (I have a bunch of wrt54gl's but none with the original firmware), both v1.0 and v1.1 have the same firmware (just like the dd-wrt version is the same)

    A workaround

    Sadly, If you visit the download site and specify the WRT54GL, you can only choose firmware for version 1.0.

    I read somewhere that there was a vulnerability in the 1.1's factory firmware. It might have involved viewing malicious Macromedia(tm) flash objects.

    I believe the firmware was pulled from the company site because of the bug (whatever it was). Somebody (on another forum, I think) suggested trying the UK English version.

    If you are in the US, you are only supposed to use channels 1 through 11 however. Easy detail to remember.

    Hope this helps.

    Found it

    In the General Discussion area of this forum, bokh has a thread dated January 15, 2008 about malicious .SWF (flash) files "doing bad things" with UPnP.

    I can't prove that is the reason Linksys pulled the firmware, but I think I read somewhere that it was the reason.

    The UK firmware usually lags behind the US, so we often use the US versions despite the fewer channels. The latest for WRT54GL is 4.30.12


    The UK still back on
