    My problem is:
    I have a WRT54G v4 that I just bought. I was trying to setup this router and after couple restarts unit stared blinking with power led and switch LED are light up. I found out that it happend when there's problem with loading firmware so I tried to flash new one and....
    There's no physical connection between computer and router.
    Can somebody tell me what should I do. Is this router dead?

    1. Open your Router
    2. find the flash rom (stands AMD or INTEL )
    3. short pins 15 and 16
    4. while they are short turn your router
    5. start ping (your IP should be SM.
    6.tftp -i put flash.bin

    when I bricked my router, I was able to just tftp the firmware over when I first powered it up. I didn't have to open the thing up at all.
