Short story: I have managed to brick my brand new WRT350N whilst upgrading from the stock 1.03.2 firmware to 1.05.8beta. It is now stuck with a flashing power light and solid usb light and nothing else. I need help un-bricking it. What should I try first? Is there any chance I might be able to do this without opening the case? Should I just return the thing to Best Buy? The longer story: My venerable old WRT54GS v2 with Sveasoft Talisman died a horrible death last week [lightning strike], and I went out to Best Buy and got a brand spanking new WRT350N to replace it. 1st order of business was to load up the latest Talisman firmware. Problem was that with both 1.2.7 and 1.2.8 I just couldn't get settings to "stick". Every time I saved, the router would reset to factory defaults [yes, I already checked that I registered the correct MAC address when downloading the firmware]. After struggling for 3 hours, I decided that it just wasn't worth the effort, and flashed back to the stock firmware. I managed to get everything configured using Linksys stock 1.03.2 -- but then decided that I should try the latest beta firmware as it was purported to resolve some of the USB drive issues which had been reported. This firmware upgrade appeared to succeed -- but once the router rebooted, it never returned from the blinking power light state. Any suggestions on next steps?
