Linksys wireless G lost it's identity

Posted on 2009-04-16

I have a wireless router that was working until the comcast guy upgraded me from DSL to Cable. The router was flashed with DDWRT. Heres the problem: I built another system (wired)  and went to hook it up and found that the technician bypassed the router. I hooked it all up and found that through the advisor utility and ultimately the ip console that the router was only recognized as a generic router and not part of any linksys family. Is there anyway to reverse it's decision? Sorry such a lame question.....

    Select your version and try and flash the firmware back to a Libnksys FW. Never used DDWRT, but I am familiar with it to an extent....
