    VxWorks Revert ZIP file needed for WRT54GS and flash information

    Hello all!

    I've been reading the Bitsum Technologies Wiki with regards flashing my router with DD-WRT firmware, but I would like the option to revert back to Linksys firmware and this requires a little work and a particular ZIP file that I cannot find and isn't available on their site any more.

    Does anybody have the said ZIP file they can send me or know somewhere it's hosted please?

    File name: vxrevert_manual_gs_v06.zip

    I would suggest going to the Linksys download page and getting a copy of the firmware for your router. Then if you decide to go back to the Linksys firmware you can load the bin file from Linksys on to your router.

    Does that mean I can flash my WRT54GS v5.1 with DD-WRT micro generic from the Linksys admin page without having to prep and kill it first, then if I wanted to go back I simply flash it with the Linksys firmware from the DD-WRT admin page?

    Yes just follow the instructions. Just be sure to clear the nvram after flashing the router with the new firmware.

    Thank you!

    I was getting ready to do the prep, kill and TFTP thing when in fact it's much simpler!

    If I understand this right, this method also means you can revert to factory firmware without the need to manually revert back to VxWorks and then using commands to set the MAC addresses and serial number.

    If it's as simple as above, why/when is the prep, kill and TFPT method needed?

    I thought I would include the reason for my confusion.

    On one of the DD-WRT Wiki pages it explains how to use the the Web GUI to flash DD-WRT, I assume while it's still Linksys firmware:


    Then on the same page you can follow links to another of the Wiki's pages that refers to two external links for flashing and these tell you to prep, kill and TFTP the DD-WRT:
