    I have a Linksys WAP54G and it's current firmware ver. is 3.01. I want to upgrade it to the latest which is 3.04. Would I need to download the firmware versions in between and install them first before installing the latest? Ex. 3.01>.02>.03>.04

    Also what are the risks of upgrading the firmware of your WAP? (I am planning to do this on a wired computer) My dad is having doubts that I'm going to brick it :\

    Lastly what steps should I take?
    This is what I was about to do before I remembered I have you guys to make sure I'm doing it right :]
    Download the firmware
    Extract the files from the.zip into a seperate folder
    Log onto the web based utility and browse for the file
    Click update
    And reboot ^_^

    Is that right? Am I missing anything?

    Nope, just download the current version.

    Your process seems to be correct. It's really pretty easy to update, just make sure you don't disconnect the device or remove the power during the FLASH operation. :)

    Risks? Well, if you nuke it, you can send it back to the manufacturer and they'll restore the FLASH for you.
