    ok heres what happen i went to upgrade my firmware and the power goes off in the middle of the upgrade so i pulled the TSOP off the router to reflash it manualy with my chip programer but now the power and the diag lite just stays on ive even bought a new chip the same as the one that was in it originaly and same problem i know the chip was put back on right cause i have a SMD rework station that cost me a good 1500$ lol any one got any ideas on what the problem might be? is there another chip that need to be programed as well or just the flash chip the AM29LV3200DB? btw its a v1.0 router

    First thing first, you must have complete flash (full-flash) with bootloader. Full flash size is 4194304 bytes. As you can see you don't have the whole flash. Found second wrt54 pulled flash and read with your programmer, reflash your tsop. If you can't found second wrt54 I can post you flash contents from Buffalo wbr-g54 it is the same. Any other solutions won't help. So my advice is for anybody who have programmer- read your flash and eeprom chips from any device before experimenting.

    If I don't clear ask me! 8)
