Hi i have just joined these forums.

i follow the instructions and Reset the router to defaults on the Linksys Admin page, and let it reboot
then
i Set my computer to a static IP address of 192.168.1.10 and 255.255.255.0 and plugged ethernet cable into LAN port of the G2v1 unit.
the
i log in admin page (username is blank, password = admin) and navigate to firmware
upgrade page. Browse to the VxWorksKiller-G2V1-new.bin file, press Upgrade and i wait for 5 minutes but it didn't repond and router did't restarted
then i open tftp and then i use dd-wrt.v24-10709_NEWD_micro.bin

Hi Raja,
I think you must enter the ip of your router into the "server" field in the tftp app. The ip for the router should default to 192.168.1.1. No password is used for the tftp app either. Also, I think one of the mini versions of ddwrt for your specific router rather than a micro version may help in your case. As your router has 4mb of flash ram, a micro build isn't needed, the micro builds are for those units with 2mb or flash ram.

Just some thoughts for you

A wrt54g2 v1 does have only 2mb of flash and you must use a micro build.

Thanks for the correction Peabody, hate to brick someones gear with my suggestions. The little bit of reading I did on the g2 said it had 4mb.

Raja, you may want to read the faq on opening ports and so on in the router, the firewall is likely keeping your computers from connecting to each other.
