Linksys WRT54G lost installation disk not access web based setup.

I have a Linksys WRT54Gv5 wireless router and I lost the installation-setup disk and cannot access the web based setup either. I have done the whole reset thing and now its not even showing up as a device. I have run every program I can find and the Linksys web page does not offer this download how can I fix this?

    I have been there and searched it for 3 or 4 days and of course this Version 5 is not one of the setup versions offered for download. Thanks for trying.

With Linksys wrt54g v6 I cannot access the setup page - I get window that says management mode firmware upgrade


  If the Power LED on your Linksys router is blinking, this means the firmware is corrupted. Since the firmware is corrupted, you won’t be able to access the web-based set up page of the router. Instead, you will be using tftp.exe to update the firmware. We recommend that you perform the following procedure in a Windows-based computer.
Downloading the Firmware

Follow the procedure here:
