My apologies to those who worked hard on this project. Great job guys!

WARNING - There is no revert for ether of these units yet.

Linksys WRTL54G2 v1.3 & WRT54GS2 v1.0


== Flashing the Linksys WRT54G2V13 ==

Warning - There is no Revert for this router at this time

1 Configure your computer's local lan ethernet address to 192.168.1.10, subnet 255.255.255.0, gateway 192.168.1.1 . Then connect an Ethernet cable to your computer and port 1 of your router. (Do Not Use Wireless)(Nothing else connected to router)
2. Perform a Hard_reset_or_30/30/30 .
3. Open your browser to http://192.168.1.1.
4. Use the firmware upgrade dialog to flash Vxworkskiller-G2V13.bin.
5. WAIT for at least five minutes before you continue! (longer is better) Give vxworks killer plenty of time to do its magic!
6. You will not be able to browse the WRT54G2V13 at this point, but you should be able to ping 192.168.1.1. If the router doesn't reply you haven't set your computer's network settings correctly (on step 1)
7. Tftp the DD-WRT firmware to the router, use latest dd-wrt.v24_micro_generic.bin from the folder where you got these instructions; after sucessful tftp, wait 5 min for the router to finish writing new nvram deafults, etc... It should reboot on its own at least 2 times, so give it 5 min and then go to http://192.168.1.1 (If it not reboot on its own, wait another 2 min, and then power cycle it) , you should see the password reset page. Don't worry about changing it at this point.
8. Perform a Hard_reset_or_30/30/30 .
9. WAIT for at least 5 minutes before you continue! (longer is better) Give the router plenty of time to to boot.
10. Browse 192.168.1.1, you should see the password reset page, change it! Then configure .

will this work with my Linksys WRT54GS2 V1? (currently running wrt micro on it):

Hi, I have the Router WRT54G2 V1. I did the procedure above for the WRT54GS V7, to restore the linksys firmware, and it's work. But, here is a question: If I want get back to dd-wrt again, what procedure should I follow? The procedure for the WRT54G2 V1 or WRT54GS V7, since now my router have the firmware from GS V7?

I guess I have to follow like the first time, the procedure for the WRT54G2 V1, right?

Another question: Can I update to firmware from WRT54G2 V1 using the Web Gui from the firmware WRT54GS V7, once now this is what istalled on my router?

Ok, I will answer your questions:

a) You can update to the original WRT54G2 firmware from the WRT54GS v7 doing the following:

1.- Download the WRT54G2 v1.0 firmware from http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/lbc/WRT54G2

2.- With a hex editor (in my case, I used xvi32) open one window with the WRT54GS v7.0 firmware and one window with the WRT54G2 v1.0 firmware.

3.- At the beginning of the firmware, there are some characters and some hex info that I call it "firmware check id". It's everything BEFORE the "Linksys WRT54G bla bla bla" part. You must replicate in the WRT54G2 firmware what you see in that part on the WRT54GS v7.0 firmware.

4.- Once you made those changes (not much in my opinion) on the WRT54G2 v1.0 firmware, save the file.

5.- Go to the router's firmware webpage and click the "administration" link. Now click "Firmware update" and choose the WRT54G2 v1.0 firmware you just saved (the one you edited). Click "upgrade".

6.- That's it. After waiting for around 4 or 5 minutes, you have the original WRT54G2 firmware.

From then on, you can use all the updates for the wrt54g2 that linksys makes available.

Now, to answer your second question, if you want to go back to dd-wrt, you have to use the WRT54G2 v1.0 method with the WRT54G2 v1.0 firmware.

if dd-wrt is already on the router, you just flash a micro build of your choice via the dd-wrt upgrade gui following normal flashing proceedures (resets, etc).

you do not run the killer files. Those are only for converting the router from stock (vxworks) to dd-wrt.

yes, DD-WRT micro is already running. I wanted to revert to original firmware because the wireless performance under DD-WRT is really low. I have a 4 Mbps internet line, but Im getting 2 Mbps through wireless. I've tried everything on the book and the most I got is 3.48 Mbps, and not all the times.

regards.

No can do.. can not go back. There has not been a revert developed. It can be done with jtag. There is a wholeflash posted by redhawk somewhere on the forum but your macs will not be correct.
