This has been asked many times.. If only you could learn search.

You need the files from Tornado's directory

Read the readme.txt, revert section

He probably didn't look to see you had only one post, we should be a little more easier on our new members, so don't worry about it and holler if you need any additional help.

Well, easy on them yeah, but people should at least TRY the search. This is just lazy behaviour, which should not be rewarded IMO.

No, it is not, do not try to use the reversion firmware on your box. there is another way I'm sure !

Hy to all!
I have also a wrt54gl v1.1 and want to go back to the original.
Are there any files or links I could look at?
Thanks, Peter

@mandarin....For the GL model only in this thread (not the V8 model)....go to linksys web site...download the firmware for your box....and just reflash your unit with the linksys version.

Administration>>firmware update page

That's it...no other tricks needed....other than a hard reset BEFORE and AFTER a firmware update.
