Hi Jim,

I'm not sure if it will work for the Linksys or Buffalo, but I have had

I used the firmware flash utility that came with the router to flash that,

Feel free to email me off list or on if there is anything else I can do to
help; you can also IM me if you like (twisty7867 on both AIM and Yahoo).
