NOTE: THIS GUIDE IS FOR A “FRESH OUT OF THE BOX” ROUTER
Firmware Installation Guide :: Linksys WRT54GL & WRT54G v1-4
The instructions below outline how to update the firmware on the Linksys WRT54GL Wi-Fi router. By updating the firmware, the
router will have the option to become a Tomizone Wi-Fi Hotspot. IMPORTANT: You must have downloaded the latest Linksys
WRT54GL firmware from http://www.tomizone.com/downloads to your computer.
1.
If your Linksys WRT54GL is fresh out of the box, DO NOT RUN THE CD as
may be instructed on the sticker across the LAN Ports. Remove the sticker if
it is covering the LAN Ports.
Connect the Wi-Fi router as per the diagram opposite (connect power to unit
and connect a Network / Ethernet cable from your computer to LAN Port 1 on
your Wi-Fi router. Connect the Internet Port to your Internet connection).
2.
Open your browser and type http://192.168.1.1/ into the address bar.
Note if you have changed the LAN address of your router from its default
value, you will need to put in the appropriate address here.
If you find the default doesn't work but you don't know what the right value is,
check your network settings and try the IP address of your "default gateway".
3.
Log in using the admin password of your router (the default on this model is a
username of "admin" with password of “admin”) then click “OK”
4.
Click on the "Administration" tab, then on the "Firmware Upgrade" tab.
Internet
LAN 1
5.
Click on the "Browse" button and select the file containing the new firmware
from the folder you saved it in.
6.
Click the "Upgrade” button and wait for the “Upgrade is successful” screen.
From this point, click on the “Continue” button
7.
If the upgrade was successful, after clicking the “continue” button, you
should see this screen.
Click on “Tomizone”
8.
You must now set a password for your Wi-Fi router - choose a password you
will remember. You will need to know this in case you want to make any
configuration changes in the future.
We suggest your password is a combination of letters and numbers. Click
“Set” when you have done this.
YOU WILL NEED TO LOG BACK INTO THE TOMIZONE SECTION OF
YOUR WI-FI ROUTER USING YOUR NEW PASSWORD (AS IN STEP 3
USERNAME ADMIN AND PASSWORD IS [NEW PASSWORD])
9.
Click on the “Tomizone Settings” tab on the mid left to see this screen.
Ensure that the “Wireless Hotspot” is enabled. Nominate the ESSID name of
your hotspot (you might put in your city name or simply leave it as
“Hotspot”). Choose which LAN port you wish to have as a “Tomizone Port” –
this will act the same way as the wireless system when ticked.
In this screen shot, you can see LAN Port 3 & 4 have been activated as
Tomizone Ports. CONFIRM CHANGES BY CLICKING THE “SAVE
CHANGES” button then “APPLY CHANGES” button – Now click on the
“Activate” button, which will allow you to assign this router to your
Tomizone account.
10.
To assign this router to your Tomizone account, log in using your Tomizone
account name and password (if you don’t have an account, you can instantly
create one here by clicking “sign up now” - MAKE SURE YOU
REMEMBER YOUR USER NAME AND PASSWORD)
11.
Once logged in, you will be asked to enter the address and other details of
your Tomizone router so people can locate it. Once completed, follow the
instructions to join the Wi-Fi router to the Tomizone network.
IF YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN AN AFFILIATE CODE FROM YOUR
PROVIDER OR RETAILER, ENTER IT ON THIS SCREEN AS
REQUESTED.
After filling out the details and clicking “Activate”, follow the instructions to
power “off” and “on” the router for a few seconds to activate the hotspot.
ONCE ACTIVATED, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE THE TOMIZONE ID
IN THE WIRELESS CONNECTION SETTINGS OF YOUR COMPUTER.
OPEN YOUR WEB BROWSER AND YOU SHOULD GET A WELCOME
SCREEN FROM YOUR HOTSPOT. LOG IN WITH YOUR ACCOUNT AND
START ENJOYING FREE ACCESS ON YOUR HOTSPOT.
