Bricked WRT54GS v2 - think I've tried everything?

    I've bricked my WRT54GS v2. I've tried:
    • Reboot, hold reset 30 seconds
    • Shorting pins 15 & 16
    • Shorting pins 5 & 6
    • Grounding pin 16 to the left antenna
    • Grounding pin 6 to the left antenna
    And probably more combinations as well. Am I overlooking anything other than JTAG?

    EDIT: The power light flashes quickly and indefinitely. The LAN and WAN (Ethernet and Internet) lights go solid for about 2 seconds upon receiving power, then go out. From there the only activity is the blinking power light.

    What happend if you connect your PC to any of LAN connectors on router? Would the LED of the LAN port turn on?
    Anyway, your router is already open - warranty is gone, so the JTAG is an option how to solve your problem.
    PS: Shorting pins wasn't good idea. :thumbdown:
