    I have a bricked WRT54GL and I did the pin 11,12 short trick (MX chip not intel) to get to failsafe mode and it worked. I then tftp'd the openwrt.bin and it said transfering in octet mode and was successful. The problem however is that the router does not reboot itself and if I power down and back up I'm back to not being able to ping. I tried the 30 second resets also with no luck. Just still have a blinking power led. Anyone have any Ideas?:confused:

    Now it is different

    I tried the earth to pin 15 and now have a solid power led, and wlan and lan leds show periodic activity like normal. I can ping but tftp times out and no web browser access. What next?

    another update

    I was able to telnet into the router and a white russian shell comes up. Can I do anything from here?
