WRH54G Firmware Download

I recently flashed my old router with DD-WRT just to try it out again. I did this without backing up the original firmware, thinking that Linksys has it available for download. But it wasn't hosted by Linksys. So then I tried live chat support. They gave me this reason:
Due to the GPL (General Purpose License) rules that govern the use of this firmware, we are no longer able to provide this firmware for download.

It turns out a handful of routers are no longer supported by Linksys.

I found the firmware by asking through the DD-WRT forums. You can find it here:

If you don't feel like registering, you can also download the firmware through this link:

0x8007273D Error On Windows 7 Activation Update

Got the error 0x8007273D while doing a Windows Update? I got it too recently while trying to activate Windows as genuine. Here's how I fixed it:

1. Run the Command Prompt as Administrator

2. Type in "Netsh winsock reset". It should say "Successfully reset the Winsock Catalog". I didn't reset my PC after this step. If the fix doesn't work, try resetting your PC first.

The genuine check worked fine for me after this. Hope it works for you too!
