    Hi there!

    Is it possible to completely, entirely, revert the WRT54GL back to stock? The entire flash memory and all the settings?

    I have a WRT54GL v1.1, flashed to tomato 1.27 speedmod.

    Everything seems to work, like torrents and downloads, but I am getting transmission problems in a game.
    (Heroes of Newerth, error: dropping old snapshot, protocol: UDP)

    I reflashed back to stock firmware FW_WRT54GL_4.30.13.016_US_EN_code, held reset for 30 seconds, power led was flashing for 10 seconds, twice.

    The problem still exists. It happens with wired and wireless connections, on different computers with different chipsets.

    I am assuming that this could be due to some NVRAM settings having different values than stock.

    I have a second WRT54GL v1.1, stock, not modified, and it doesn't expose this problem.

    I haven't tried connecting flash pin 16 to ground, yet.

    I found many different threads and messages on how to reset the entire contents of NVRAM.

    I have also tried mtd-erase -d nvram | reboot.

    Any help would be really appreciated, even if it just some insight on where the settings could have hid themselves.

    Thanks a lot in advance
