Note: This is a repost from the DD-WRT forums. Sorry about that, i'm just trying to get some help, you know? Now, I apologize if this has been asked before. I took a look over the wiki and searched the forums, but i'm pretty sure this is a new issue. Let's start with my "bricked" 1.1, shall we? Okay. I tried to load the (correct) DD-WRT firmware on to it. It loaded and died, more or less. Nothing, wouldn't boot, etc. I pulled it offline pretty quick, so that may have been what messed it up. Now here's the issue: It responds to pings on boot. Perfectly. For like, three seconds. But when I try to TFTP the firmware to it, I get nothing. It says it was successful, the light goes green, and then it just sits there. The lights are working perfectly. Router won't respond (I even gave it a good ten minutes). My PC can SEE it, but when I try to ping it, it's not there. It even says "Local Area Blah Blah Connected". So, apparently what I have is a router that, despite responding on boot, having lights that dictate the fact that it is apparently functional, and apparently having gotten flashed correctly, STILL won't respond. What am I doing wrong? And please be gentle, networking scares me. And now for the second act, my v6! I'm just...Not sure how to prepare for a flash. What are the chances that it will work if I don't wig out and disconnect like I did last time? I've been told that I need to upload the firmware in three sections? Is this true? I'm just confused by all the instructions. Can someone put it nice and simple? As if I was a retarded child, actually.
