    I have read a lot of threads regarding firmware upgrade failures in WRT54GC model. Maybe another one was born...
    I have the 54GC a few month but never have it operate successfully. Each hour, too many disconnections. I got advice to upgrade firmware and found the Linksys official 1.02.8. During upgrade the wired computer stuck. I got none pingable router with yellow power led. I have tried most of the recommendations in this site: Using wired computer, Resetting the unit (30 sec & turned off), static IP address, lowering net speed (10T), TFTP utility but the 54GC refused to answer.
    Funny, I have the 54GL and it works perfect. I thought that the 54Gc would be nice for travels... Before I give up and say "No more bad product like
    Linksys 54GC" any of you have some idea what to do?

    I just googled wrt54gc yellow led and found this post... and it's fresh too!

    I just upgraded the firmware on this router. Prior to upgrade everything was working fine, I have it feeding off of another wired linksys.

    According to the onscreen upgrade, everything went smoothly. However, the router now has a yellow led and cannot be pinged.

    NOTE: While wireless no longer works, the router still connects to the internet when plugged into the dsl modem.

    This is confusing.

    Oh and one more thing:

    The reset button wont work on mine, even after pressing and holding it for over 20 seconds. Not sure if it is related, or just a coincidence.
