PLZ HELP!!!!! ok.. first, some background: i tried to update the v3 firmware several times to no avail (with hyper wrt 2 and 21b1), using the web GUI. i always got "updates are failed" msg, after wich i could do the long reset recovery method without problems... a visit to google after and i find out that people having my same problem tried upgrading to ddwrt first to later install other firmware.. i did just that and ddwrt loaded nicely, after wich i installed hyper 21b1 (i think), and BAM! it's gone, can't do the long reset and wenever i try to ping it to up the official firmware i get only timeouts...power LED won't stop blinking... so i'm hoping you can answer some questions: 1.-Do all those guides for de-bricking the WRT54G work the same for WRT54GS models (cuz i've only found guides for WRT54G). If they don't, can you link to some good guides? 2.-i've also found the "shorting the pins" guides for 54G... will the same method work for a 54GS? Do both use the same pins? 3.-Can you point me to a good TFTP software so i can up my original firmware? Please help me out. And if you could point me to some solution that doesn't require me to fumble with the hardware (bare electronics H-A-T-E me), you'll be my effing hero. cheers.
