Help me unbrick my router, please?

    Hi guys. I may have bricked my router by installing the wrong version of toastman. Perhaps you could help me out? Haha.

    First off, I have a Linksys WRT54GL, I'm not sure which version of Toastman I used. I'd get the filename, but my other computer's power charger decided to die on me the same day. I remember it was the Std version, it may have been 1.28.7500 but I'm not sure.

    After I installed it, things worked ok. I was configuring some of the settings, and reset it, and then it just stopped working. It was named 'wireless' but nothing would connect to it.

    Anyway, I followed the advice on this page: http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Recover_from_a_Bad_Flash and did a hard reset. My power light blinked for about 10-15 seconds then went solid and the WLAN went on. It says all I need to do is reset the nvram but I don't know how to do that.

    Any help would be awesome. Thanks.

    by the sounds of it you may have used a 60k nvram firmware when your hardware only has 32k available, thus allowing you to configure it for a short period as the nvram filled up
