Yeah, you came in here all smug, thinking “I know all about the WRT54G!” BUT LOOK HERE! This is the WRTP54G router, one I got for free that I’ve been using fine for a long time. And only now have I realized that its port forwarding doesn’t work because the firmware it has is broken.
So, the obvious answer? Update the firmware! Easier said than done.
Linksys put its name on this, but it’s actually a Vonage router. Linksys barely handles anything with this thing. And all the Vonage directions on how to flash the thing say “turn off the wireless, and then reset the router. The power light will blink for a while, and then it’ll be updated.” But that doesn’t work!
I think I need to be a Vonage customer for that to work, but I have no clue. And the manual updating tool doesn’t seem to work in Windows 7. And I can’t find a way to actually point the router to the img file that contains the update. Does anyone have any clue what to do with this piece of junk? Am I just screwed?
EDIT: Please note the funny spelling.
