    I think i 've bricked my WRT54G V2.0
    I don't know what happens, the router has worked fine.
    I disconnected the WRT to take him with me to a friend of me.
    I 've plugged in the power supply an the WRT was dead.

    Visual signs:
    After power on, the Power LED is flashing all the time.
    If i unplug the power and pressing the reset button and power up the device,
    the DMZ LED lights and Power LED is still blinking.
    If i push the reset button in normal operation mode (means power on and press the button) nothing happens.

    I don't know whats going wrong.
    I debricked this device a long time ago but i can't remember the recover steps.
    I only know that the manuals in any forum hasn't worked.

    I only know a few minds.
    switch eth to 10MB Half
    use tftp with binary mode and rexmt 1
    the firmware binary may be not bigger than 3 MB.

    PLLlllllzzzz can anybody help!!!

    Same problem as above. Ironicly. Around the same excact time. shorted pins 15-16 to get ping response finally, but still not able to load any .bin (I have tried several) regardless of size. Cannot TFTP via command prompt or Linksys utility. :sad: getting a little pissy about now.
