    I recently bought an open box WRT54G v5 from newegg but when I plugged it in the power LED would blink and the port lights (1-4 + wan) are steady on, and a comp plugged into it doesn't detect a cable connected.

    I missed the 7-day limit on returns for open box items, so I wrote it off as a loss and replaced it. Since I've got it though, I was wondering if this sounds like anything that might be repairable. I'm expecting not, but thought I'd give it a shot anyway.

    Try doing a hard reset. Hold the reset button in, power on the router and continue holding in the reset button for about 30 seconds.

    Also welcome to the forums. :)

    If the hard reset doesn't help, it most likely needs JTAG to revive it. I'd be interested in buying it from you, or fixing it for you. If you're interested, let me know. Thanks.
