Guys & Ladies,
I'm trying to update my Linksys router WRT54G with the new version 8 that just came out awhile ago hadn't had the chance to update as of yet. The firmware file is a .bin file what program do I need to use for it?

Most of the ones I've seen, you run the install from within the router itself.
I use my web access to my router & there is a menu item that lets me do it.

OQX is right on with that. You just open the admin console and use the "Firmware Upgrade" function. When it asks for a file, point it at the .Bin.
I've tried most all of the firmwares for WRT54G and by far the best one I've found is Tomato (http://www.polarcloud.com/tomato). It's nice to look at and is well organized.

Yep, its in the admin part.
Make sure you do it from a wired computer-they can flake on wireless sometimes.
