    You can use Mustdie, but it is based on 2.07, you may have 2.08, which may give you a message that you cannot downgrade. I would check you firmware version. Do your firmware update from a wired connection only and reset to factory defaults. I would check other peoples experiences with Mustdie and use that information.

    downgrading firmware

    for units shipped with 2.08, or flashed to 2.08 before you discovered mustdie! :)

    you need to do the following

    go to:


    and set the two options to their other setting (i thinks it's disable rather than enable)

    you will then be able to put whatever the hell firmware you feel like on the unit!!

    i got the wap54g v2 too, and i flashed it with the latest mustdie firmware. and it seems to work fine actually!!
    does anyone know if there are other firmwares out which work with v2? just would like to test a little. if theres no firmware out ill keep the mustdie then.
    thank you!!

    Which version of the firmware did you have on it originally (from manufacturer)? And what steps did you do to install mustdie?

    Thanks for your help

    Re: downgrading firmware

    After running the MustDie firmware update this no longer works. Since it is set to factory defaults then another firmware can't be used.

    after flashing with mustdie, as far as i can tell the unit has no control over upgrades/downgrades so the instruction is obsolete. i gave the instruction because you have to do that to allow you to flash mustdie in the firstplace because the box thinks your trying to downgrade it.

    Hi everyone!
    My question is maybee a bit odd , but still, before i flash new firmware into my WAP54G V2 with original firmware v2.8 ( think EU version , bought in Holland ) ...
    I'w read postings about "bricking" my AP if i have V2 , and now it comes... with RESET button (hole) nearer to the Ethernet port ( left from it) , and that it works with the ones with reset button nearer to the LEFT Antenna ...

    So , what now i ask myself , modell is OK , it is V2 HW model (labeled so) , firmware is orig v. 2.8 and i would like that power boost from MustDie version 2.7 .. (latest anyway..)

    Will i brick my WAP54G or not?
    Anyone something on those strange msg. about reset hole ?
