    Hi everyone,

    I've been a lurker here for a while and am now in need of your help.

    I just gave away my old WRT54GSv2 and purchased a GX2 which I am not happy with at all.

    I CANNOT for the life of me get to the config page and when I do, it hangs on the setup page. I will click a link only for it to hang then try to load the next page. Why cant I navigate the config pages to set this router up????

    I am litteraly pulling my hair out!!!!!

    what browser are you using? the old firmware doesn't support firefox. You need to use IE. I also have a GX2 and am not fully satisfied with it, there were several issues with it using the firmware it shipped with.

    I have lately upgraded to the new firmware, which fixed several issues, but also introduced new ones. One being, my wired computers cannot connect to my wireless computers. I still have to try more things to troubleshoot this.

    Hopefully this info can help you out.

    Anyone with out there with any good suggestions on this wireless router?

    Yes I used IE to try and configure the router. Sometimes it will load the opening config page (after entering the passwd) then hang from there. I cannot navigate at all.

    As for using the startup disk; It says "Cannot see router, please check to make sure router has power". I am able to ping the router just fine but no able to communicate with it.

    Again....this problem may be related to the overheating issue. Mine would lockup and do a thing until I unplugged it for several minutes

    Not an overheating issue...

    Finally got into the config pages by booting in to safe mode with networking. I then upgraded the firmware from 1.01.06 to 1.01.14 and everything seems to be working fine now.

    I really wanted to kill this thing:)
