Thanks a ton Kyle! Okay, so I grabbed the four files it showed under WRT54GS
v5, and now to be cautious I would like to check with you exactly how you
installed it.

I got to the installation wiki page here:
Is this what you followed? And I'm guessing it's ideal to use a Windows box
to do the install with? (Only ask because my desktop is a linux machine
upstairs and the router sits in the basement beside a headless server, so
just double-checking if I'd do best by bringing my other Win7 desktop

Thanks a lot :)
