    Hi, I got the same problem. Did you upgrade the Linksys firmware before you tried the DD-WRT? If not, do you know what version of the Linksys firmware was originally loaded in your WRT?

    I found this:

    Special notes for flashing the WRT54Gv4

    Only DD-WRT version 23 or higher support the WRT54Gv4 and it does not support flashing the std or voip version of DD-WRT from the original Linksys firmware, because they limited the maximum firmware size to 3 MByte (as noted below). Thus, only the mini version of DD-WRT can be flashed initially. Once DD-WRT mini is installed, you can upgrade to std or voip versions. Use the *_generic.bin and the web interface when upgrading, unless the web interface is unavailable. Use tftp if the web interface is not available. The special (mini/std/voip)_wrt54g.bin file is only needed if you need to use tftp to upgrade the firmware. Remember to reset to factory defaults before and after every flashing.
