LinkSYS WRT54G router software/programe

Where do I go to download the software/program for a LinkSYS WRT54G router? I went to and found everything but the software.
Thanks in advance for your time.

Software or firmware?

There is no "software" for the router, only firmware. This is the router's operating system; it determines the functions. Can you be more specific on what you are trying to gain?

Here, no setup software is used.

I point a web browser at the router and use its web setup tools.

Why not?

Router setup ?

I'm going to assume that you are looking for software to set up the router -- as Coryphaeus has noted you don't need software. Best to read or download the manual which will tell you how setup.

LinkSYS = boatanchor :(

Thanks everybody for the info.
It would appear that this router is FUBAR.
The debate now is wether to use it as a boatanchor or a target.
I vote target.

Again, thanks,

I TOO NEED the Drivers

I need the CD or the drivers for the WRT54G router. Where can I find it free without paying somebody to send it to me by link?

Re: drivers

No drivers necessary for a router. Why do you think you need one?

No drivers are needed for routers.

Otherwise you would need them as you used WiFi hotspots.

I see you cross posted so this old discussion is now closed.
