Topic: HOWTO: Install OpenWRT to WRT54GS v2.0

I have successfully installed OpenWRT to WRT54GS v2.0   smile

-----Dynamic Information

(MAC address censored :twisted:)

I don’t take responsibility this guide. But I will tell you how I installed my own box.

1.    I downloaded OpenWRT snapshot.
http://openwrt.org/downloads/snapshots/snapshot-20050202.tar.bz2

2.    I went to http://192.168.1.1/Upgrade.asp and upgraded openwrt-gs-code.bin in there.
(I also tried boot_wait but it didn’t work. sad)

3.    And then I boot to OpenWRT. That’s it.

If someone wants to restore original firmware I don’t know any other way than this:

Cool.  Did everything go up as per normal?  Do you have Wireless Extensions on eth1?  If you were to tftp this in, would it work?

Seeing that I don't own a WRT54GS v2.0, I'm wondering if it has the same issues as the WRT54G v2.2.

Yes

Do you have Wireless Extensions on eth1?

Yes. I have wireless network. WPA-PSK ---> AES and it works.

If you were to tftp this in, would it work?

I'm sorry but I don’t understand what you think.

i tftp'ed openwrt to my v2 WRT, so yes  big_smile

Re: HOWTO: Install OpenWRT to WRT54GS v2.0

It seems more likely that someone saw the following and mistakenly thought it was a wrt54gs v2.0

Model No: WRT54GS
  FCC-ID: Q87-WRT54GV2
      IC: 3839A-WRT54GV2

(The above is a wrt54gs v1.0 -- if the model doesn't give a version number then the version is 1.0)

Do you use PPPoE?

Yes it is that. I'm sorry I made a mistake.

Did I understand this right that WRT54GS v1.0 is the same as WRT54G v2.0 but it has 8Mb
Flash, 32Mb RAM and SpeedBooster?

Anyway can someone tell me why I can't upgrade my box with tftp?
I found this: http://www.openwrt.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=882 they have the same problem.

Do you use PPPoE?

No

Yes, that's correct.
