Hi,

Linksys WRT54G-TM


Front (all sizes)


Back (all sizes)


Chipsets (all sizes])


Broadcom (all sizes)

D-Link TM-G5240


Front (all sizes)


Back (all sizes)

Any suggestion is welcome. Thank you very much.

looking at the firmware update for the Linksys WRT54G-TM v1.1 shows it to be almost 4MB so i guess it could be possible this router is = v4 or lower model?

Thanks for the reply.
So I should be able to try to upload any version of DD-WRT onto the WRT54G-TM?
How about D-Link?
Thanks.

Typing numbers taken from chips into Google suggests that the DLink has 4M flash/16M RAM, and the Linksys has 32M RAM and a sticker over the flash chip.

This is what the sticker covers


all sizes

Should I just try to load dd-wrt into them?
Will I brick the routers by doing that?

Thanks.

Your D-link is 100% NOT supported. DOn't load d-wrt.
To Linksys: Looks like flash size is 8MB (you lucky b***** !), I think any dd-wrt version will run.

I agree with Eko, I think it would work one thing I flashed the firmware for the WRT54G-TM to my wrt54gs v4 and it just ended up bricking it so I recovered it back to ddwrt. Im curious to what is different about the tmobile firmware.

I will try to load dd-wrt to the WRT54G-TM when i got time. Smile
By the way, how should I recover it if the router is bricked?
Thanks again. ^^

JTAG!! Please don't try shorting pins as you'll see suggested in some places. It's a lame, archaic, backwards-ass method that will most likely ruin your router. JTAG is the ONLY way to go.

Also, where did you get that baby? How much was it? Can I get one?? Thanks!!

I'm actually following this post because I just got a WRT54G-TM myself. Wink I'm really hoping that it's able to run dd-wrt.

I think it's a safe assumption that the 12 pin port labeled JP1 is the JTAG port. It'd probably take a bit of tweaking of the HairyDairy JTAG utility to get it to work with the chips you've got, but there are plenty of geniuses here who can work that part out easily enough. Given enough time, I could probably figure it out eventually.....so it's not that hard to do. JTAG cables are fairly easy to build...it's getting the parts on small quantities that's tricky. I sell quality JTAG cables with a lifetime guarantee if you're interested in purchasing one.

If you decide you want to get rid of that router, let me know!! Twisted Evil

Could you be a bit clearer about which firmware you loaded? Just for the record. Also, through the web interface or with tftp?
