I'm trying to do a manual firmware update for my Linksys WRT54G2 router using the instructions provided by Linksys support.
Based on the instructions and videos that are provided, the firmware update version that I downloaded, should contain either a .bin or .bix file extension.
There are no file extension like that in the zip folder that was downloaded.
I downloaded the firmware update for version 1, that matches my router model.
The file size is 104MB
I opened the zip file folder and still don't see any files with either .bin or .bix.
This is what the zip folder's default name is.
When I open the folder, this is what it contains.
A set up folder, a start setup.app folder, a .DS_store file extension, autorun and manual.
According to the Linksys instructions, when I do the firmware upgrade when I'm accessing my router, I need to pick the .bin file that should be part of the firmware update download.
Can anyone explain what I might be doing wrong as to why I'm not getting a .bin or .bix file extension included in the firmware update download?

Looks like you downloaded the setup wizard for PC.
Firmware update for WRT54G2 is only 1.71MB
Ver.1.0.04 (Build 5)

When I saw XP, Vista setup wizard at the bottom of the page, I automatically thought that's what I needed as I use XP as a OS.
I completely overlooked what was at the top of the page for what I actually needed!
I used your download link and now have what I need.
If I missed something that simple, makes me wonder if I should go ahead with the update!
I'll give it a go anyway.
Thanks for the help and quick reply.
