Brother Killed Router...

    I have a wireless WRT54G. Plain Jane Wireless-G Broadband router. My brother tried flashing it with some bum firmware and now the sucker doesn't work at all. I can't even ping the router...so I would expect I'm pretty much screwed and actually have to go out and buy a new one. If there's a way to throw all defaults back into the memory of this guy without connecting a computer to it, I would love to hear it. If not, tell me the bad news and I'll fess up and buy another one...which I would hate to do since this one was working perfectly until he got his hands on it.

    I got this dead sucker fixed. I opened it up and shorted out some pins and TFTP'ed a good bin file and it brought it back to life. Too bad Linksys doesn't incorporate some kind of external jumper or recessed button to do this. It would really help a lot of people.
