    This is not a Linksys firmware. It is a third party firmware, so it is certainly not Linksys' fault. It most definitely is the consumer's (op) fault.

    As for returning it, I would think that is very questionable. That is strictly my opinion. Yes according to CC's return policy it is within his right (OP) to return it. If it were me I would not. See I8er's comments. After all when the op tried to install the firmware he/she agreed to take the risk of "bricking" his/her router.

    I agree with you and l8er on this. If it were an update from linksys and it happened that would be a different story.

    Glad you got it working again. For future reference, if you modify with non-Linksys firmware, the small print says that you have voided the warranty, so in all fairness, you cannot in good faith return it. Bottom line. If you feel that the rules dont apply to you, then dont go asking advice about returning a modified malfunctioning router in a public forum. Not trying to be harsh, just voicing an opinion that many share

    Next time buy a WRT54-GL. The L stands for Linux, and there are no issues flashing DD-WRT to it, plus the router has more flash memory to handle the more robust versions of DD-WRT.

    Gotta give some props to Brainslayer and everyone else involved in the DD-wrt project.
