[edit] WRT54GL

Is one to assume that these instructions apply to the WRT54GL as well? Ebonelza 14:52, 21 Jun 2006 (CEST)

I would say Yes! As I followed these instructions, and everything worked just as advertised PBossman 19:52, 16 Aug 2006

This tutorial looks real good. I think we should change it to be more generic. Remove the first person statements. Show the "Upgrade Are Failed" screen as a possible screen with a recommendation to check the router to see if the upgrade truly failed or not. How about changing the scope to match all Linksys routers that this applies to, with a note that this particular tutorial was on a version 4. I'll take care of these changes but would like some feedback from other wiki editors. Thanks -HK

i followed the tutorial with my second WRT54GL until the "Upgrade Are Failed" screen, which was a "Update successful" screen. Since then i could reach the router never again. I tried to login with "root : admin" and with many other combinations but without success. And since i restarted the browser i only get a blank window when i go to As a switch connected to the other router which is connected with the Cable modem it still functions! Help would be much appreciated. Erichs 11:07, 09 Nov 2006

if you have troubles with login after installation, you didnt reset to factory defaults. in this case push the reset button for 30 seconds and everything will work as it should. BrainSlayer 11. Nov 2006 will give you the GUI for the first time. This is a common mistake.

[edit] WRT54GS V4

This upgrade path worked almost perfectly as listed here using a wrt54gs V4 in conjunction with Apple OSX, the only problem was - using IE as reccommended installed the mini form fine but gave installation failed on attempted upgrade to full generic. This problem comes from the fact that for OSX IE is legacy software that is no longer being updated and in this form is partially incompatible (V5.2), on the upgrade page from mini the lettering on the tabs on the left hand side was not visible but functioned (second from the bottom) this version of IE also failed to save amended details on a WET11B. Using Safari instead worked fine and gave a perfectly running install within a short period of time and is reccomended to upgrade with as Firefox seems to have issues from reports.
