Updating firmware on linksys wrt54g
The Mini and Micro versions range in size between 2 megabytes (MB) and 3 MB.
The nokaid version is the same as the standard version minus support for the XLink Kai gaming service.
Wait for the router to finish the boot process (the POWER light stops flashing), then press the reset button on the back for 5 seconds.
The original WRT54G was first released as a SOHO router in December 2002.
Originally created for certain models of Linksys routers, DD-WRT has been developed over many years to be compatible with other popular brands and models.
Users install DD-WRT on routers using the firmware upgrade (also called firmware flashing) process.
For additional background information, see Linksys WRT54G series.
The largest versions contain the most feature support but are more likely to need extra configuration, while the smaller versions strip out features some people may not want that in turn can help increase performance and/or improve stability.This package tends not to support as many different router models as DD-WRT, however.NOTE: Replacing the factory firmware is different for every router.DD-WRT does not support all seven packages for every router model; in particular, Mega packages cannot fit onto older routers that only contain 4 MB of flash memory space.
DD-WRT is one of three popular custom firmware options.Routers contain a small fixed amount of persistent flash memory - usually 4 megabytes (MB), 8 MB or 16 MB in size - where the firmware is stored.
