Conflicting information?

The article says that "the WRT54GSv.5 has 2mb of flash memory." but it also says "All the WRT54GS models except v4.0 have 8MB of flash" So which is it and can upgrade my WRT54GSv.5? Thanks! BTW if I can and this works YOU ROCK! (YOU ROCK ANYWAY)

Missing info

Is it supposed to say "Updateds sucessfully" or "Update are failed" after you upload? Mine is saying the latter. If this is wrong, troubleshooting info should be added for that case. If it's currect, it should say so aswell, because else people will abort when they see it. ThorRune 15:59, 28 Dec 2006 (CET)

I'll give it a shot, from what i know. Please correct me if i'm wrong. ThorRune 20:37, 30 Dec 2006 (CET)

Tidy up

Does anyone have any ideas for how this article could be tidied up?

It seems like it is getting a bit unwieldy and hard to navigate to me. Hal 17:52, 14 Mar 2007 (CET)

Belkin F5D7130 v1000

Allegedly, the Belkin F5D7130 is the same unit as the F5D7230 without the WAN port. The F5D7130 is a model with 4MB flash and 8MB RAM. Although I managed to TFTP the full DD-WRT firmware, I had two major problems. Firstly, I could not get WDS to work and secondly I could not get the LAN port to work. I tried to reflash with the Belkin stock firmware hard reset to clear NVRAM. Unit stopped responding (no lights came on). I suspect that I managed to somehow taint the unit's CFE memory. I've tried to JTAG into the unit, but I am unable to find a replacement CFE.BIN for my model. The F5D7230 v1000,v1010 and v1444 CFE.BIN do not work using HairyDairyMaid's JTAG prog. I would not advise anybody to put DD-WRT on one of these units until is it confirmed compatible!

Buffalo Routers

The Windows TFTP instructions say to use dd-wrt.v23_generic.bin whereas the Linux TFTP instructions say to use dd-wrt.v23_mini_generic.bin. Then, under the Linux troubleshooting section, it says to use this command "tftp -m binary -c put dd-wrt.v23_generic.bin" which is obviously not the mini firmware.

If the reference to the mini firmware a carryover from the WRT54G instructions? As noted, "It is not necessary to use the two-step flash process as with some WRT54Gs. The Buffalo will accept the entire generic image in one shot."
