WRT600N Firmware update problem 1.01.35 build 5_20080115

I've been unable to update my firmware version using the admin page or using the tftp utility.  In both cases, I get a message to the effect that the firmware update failed.  Tech support has told me that the firmware cannot be updated (from the current version) and that I will have to return my router to the place I bought it.  My current version is 1.01.35 build 5_2008011  which I've been told is not a supported firmware version.  I've tried to update the version several times to build 3 (the current available firmware from linksys.com) with no luck.  Has anyone else run into this problem and been able to fix?
 
Ultimately I am trying to troubleshoot a problem with the usb storage and I suspect it is firmware related.
 
Thanks!

I have the same router with the same firmware.  I get the same message when I try to upgrade.  I have disconnect problems.  I haven't called support yet, but that's my next step.

Thanks for the note - from my discussions with support, I understand that the firmware cannot be updated back to an earlier rev. 
 
Can I ask why you were wanting to flash the firmware?  Is there another problem you are troubleshooting?

I think a few of us would like to run DD-WRT firmware...please Linksys fix your firmware issue...

Hi JoeRaftery... sonmetimes it happens that due to power surge the firmware goes currpt...in such case reflash/reload of the firmware helps ...

I was trying to fix my disconnect issues.  After a few hours, my router doesn't respond.  The wired PC cannot reach any websites (web page cannot be found) and the wireless PC loses it connection to the router and will not reconnect.  I have to power cycle the router to get everything to work again.

Spoke to Corporate Tech Support last night. Asked if there was a newer firmware. Within an hour of my call the newest firmware was uploaded to the website. 1.01.36 build 3.
 
Note: Called Coporate because their normal tech support could not give me answers.  I tried for a week. I also explain that to corporate.
