    My first post, so be nice :)

    When a customer accesses the internet via thier web browswer I want to redirect them to the Homepage to the website of the store/cafe they are sitting in.
    I hear there is a firmware program that will allow me to do this, but i'm not sure which one, or how to find it.

    Thanks for the help

    Ok. I download the firmware and updated the router. It was successful, but now my powr LED is flashing. The notes say not to unplug the power until the blinking stops, but it's been blinking for serveral minutes. How long should I wait?

    Ok, I couldn't stand it. I uplugged the power for about 10 sec's then plugged it bac in. The power light continues to flash. I cannot resolve an IP now.
    What do I do now?

    I've preformed the de-bricking steps right down to the part where I must tftp the bin back into router. I keep getting a Time Out error

    my command that i'm putting in is...

    tftp -i put name.bin

    I can ping the router now like i'm suppose to and the bin is in the root of C. which is where my prompt is.
