[edit] How To Flash

Read the Firmware FAQ and Broadcom forum build threads before upgrading!

  1. Use GUI or TFTP flash with a wired connection. Disable wireless to be safe.
  2. DO NOT 30/30/30 HARD RESET this model as this could brick your router. See the Peacock Announcement Note 1.


[edit] Initial Flash

Download Build 14929 dd-wrt.v24_mini_wrt54gs.bin

  1. Reset by keeping the router powered on and holding the reset button until the lights flash (up to 30sec)
  2. Open 192.168.1.1 in a web browser (if issues are encountered, try another browser)
    • User = (Leave Blank)
    • Password = admin
    • If this does not work, see the above reset info to restore to factory defaults.
  3. Check the firmware version in the top right corner to be 4.71.4, otherwise flash:
  4. Go to Administration -> Factory Defaults -> Restore -> Apply Settings to flash dd-wrt.v24_mini_wrt54gs.bin
    • Wait 5 minutes for the router to reboot
    • If no response, unplug the router for 10 seconds then plug it back in
  5. Access the GUI to set a password
