Carpediem what ver of firmware you using? I was having the same issue as you. I've tried 12548 and 13064, both with issues. 12774 was recommended so I will try that tonight, then maybe the latest 14205 build. My advice would be to try some different firmware revisions and see how they treat you.

enohand, I was having the same issue. Used Internet Exploder and it worked fine.
ok just flashed my router with the firmware (DD-WRT v24-sp2 (10/10/09) micro
(SVN revision 13064) from the guides all went smooth
except now i am trying to make changes & save them, but they dont take. As soon as i hit apply, or save it takes me to a blank page, then i nav back to the IP & its all the old info
(i have tried chaning LAN ip, router name, wirelss SSID, etc....nothing sticks.
Also then i tried loading a newer firmware (dd-wrt.v24-13577_NEWD_micro-plus.bin)but when i hit the upgrade button it takes me to a Connection was rest page, but the modem doesnt appear to be rebooting...when i go back to this address "http://192.168.1.1/upgrade.cgi" it says upgrade failed...
anyone know what the issue could be?
i am using fire fox as my browser....could that be the problem?
hi all, i've been looking around for some time to upgrade to dd-wrt too and managed to do it today
i did my research before doing it and finished with no problems, right now i'm using DD-WRT v24-sp2 (10/10/09) micro (SVN revision 13064) and it's working fine actually, but with one problem: Slowdown
since i got my Linksys WRT54G2 v1 it all worked fine, download reached 216KB/s, same speed as my adsl
but a few days ago it started to bump a little bit, and wifi speed did not reach its maximum, so i started to try all kinds of restarts/reinstall
i upgraded to dd-wrt and it was good for a while, but i'm still seeing slowdown in my speed.
i've digged the peacock thread looking for answers, got into the "router slowdown" wiki which was very helpful, but still i'm getting a slowdown in speed
my question is: since i updaded to firmware dd-wrt.v24_micro_generic.bin, i wondered if changing to dd-wrt.v24-10709_NEWD_micro.bin would help? (i see in the post above that it didn't :/ )
the router's memory sure have something to do with the speed right, since the new firmware occupies most of memory, it will sure slowdown the router if it has less memory available...right?
i'm still trying to gather more info from logs and other stuff but for now, would a new upgrade to this 10709 help? i can just load it form the webgui?
thanks for your help!

Here is the guide to revert to VXWorks WITHOUT USING JTAG.
As stated by Wikipedia, the WRT54G2 router has exactly the same hardware the WRT54GS v7 has, so I searched through the internet (specifically this forum) for a way to revert those routers to the original firmware they had.
Fortunately, THERE IS a method to return those routers to their proprietary firmware (VXWorks), so I thought that maybe...just maybe, the methond AND files would be the same for my router (WRT54G2 v1.0), so I followed the instructions below:
The reversion tool V3 for the Gv8 & GSv7 is located in the Download section, under others/tornado. Remember this is TEST firmware. I have tested this as completly as I can on a Gv8 & GSv7, with success every time. Below I will also include my Recommended procedure to revert to the original Linksys firmware.
Thank you BrainSlayer, for this reversion tool, nice job.
1. Reset to defaults.
2. Open your browser to the Administration -> firmware upgrade screen.
3. Browse for and choose the reversion firmware. "vxworksrevert.bin" and click apply.
Wait aprox 2 "two" min after hitting apply.
4. Power off the router and back on.
5. Go to 192.168.1.1 in your browser, you should be at the mgmt mode screen.
6. Browse to and locate the Linksys original firmware, etc WRT54Gv8_v8.00.0_fw.bin or the GSv7 firmware for your router - and click apply. - wait for upgrade success screen, and then wait an additional 45 seconds after powering on the router.
7. Go to 192.168.1.1, you should have the original Linksys firmware installed.
I timed these procedures...and they are aprox., any additional will not hurt.
The method above works for WRT54G v8.0, which has 2mb flash and 8mb RAM (which would be like WRT54G2 v1.3), so I used the files for the WRT54GS v7.0, which has 2mb flash and 16mb RAM (which would be like WRT54G2 v1.0).
Downloaded the files, done everything stated above, step-by-step and....voilá, router reverted to VXWorks.
Obviously it will say "WRT54G" or "WRT54G2", but that's a minor issue.
Now, the vxworks firmware stored at the Tornado folder is old, so I recommend you to go to Cisco's website and download the latest version.
I hope you find this guide useful. DD-WRT is a wonderful firmware, but wi-fi works like hell on these crappy routers (come on guys, admit it: these routers are not worthy of such awesomeness as the dd-wrt firmware).
To Tornado, for his method and tools to make this revert possible.
To Eko and Brainslayer, because we wouldn't exist as a community and wouldn't have the wonderful software dd-wrt is if they haven't created it.
