Ask Tornado, maybe he knows a way to prevent reset in software.

Like jmh9072 said, If you disable it in the firmware the, reset is still enabled in the CFE, are you SURE you want to completly disable the reset button...

If for some reason you or someone else overclocks, or you get a bad flash..you will only be able to recover with jtag...I thinks it's a bad idea...but everyone has there reasons...

We would have to diable it in the CFE, easy for me to make a new CFE with it disabled "depending on the version of WRT54G ?"
but then you would have to flash a new cfe to all your routers ?

use cfe to change device mac Example :
--------------------------------
telnet dd-wrt,and then "cat /proc/mtd" :
mtd0: 00040000 00020000 "cfe"
mtd1: 007a0000 00020000 "linux"
mtd2: 002be6f4 00020000 "rootfs"
mtd3: 00020000 00020000 "nvram"
mtd4: 00400000 00020000 "ddwrt"
--------------------------
backup cfe.bin:
"dd if=/dev/mtd/0 of=/tmp/cfe.bin"
--------------------------
change mac:
"sed "s/00:0F:66:5A:23:40/00:12:17:E3:F7:04/g" "
--------------------------
cfe.bin >cfe.new

"mtd write cfe.new cfe"

You really should have JTAG just in case. because tftp may not work if the CFE somehow fails.

but of course this means you will have to open the routers' anyway, in which case you could've just removed the reset button in the first place :P

IMO removing reset button is safer because you can always put it back without messing with JTAG or CFE.
