Help me linksysinfo.org, you're my only hope. So. Here's what happened: I was running HyperWRT, and a friend suggested I try DD-WRT. I installed DD-WRT, and after a day, realized that it was unstable, and kept dropping my internet connection (and I couldn't ping the router.) I used the firmware upgrade utility in DD-WRT to upload a new copy of HyperWRT, and after the flash finished, the router was bricked: no ping reply, blinking power light... bricked. I managed to get it to reply to pings using the pin 16 to ground trick, and using the Linksys TFTP program, I managed to upload the official firmware. Unfortunately, after the upgrade finished, there was no status change on my router at all; I still had the blinking power light, and only responded to ping. I couldn't even telnet in. I had my computer set to a static IP address, using half duplex 10baseT. If I use the TFTP program to upload HyperWRT, it fails to erase the flash. TFTP from my command prompt brings up the graphical interface, and doesn't transfer from the command line itself. Also, I should note, I've tried this from both Windows, and a BSD box (OS X), and I've tried hard resetting the firmware by holding the reset button for 30 seconds, unplugging the router, continuing to hold the button for another 30 seconds, plugging it back in and holding the button for yet another 30 seconds, and then unplugging the router with the button released for ten seconds. I've tried every trick in the book, and can't seem to get this thing up and running. Anyone have any advice?
