    Hi all,

    First, notice this problem is on a "WTR54GS travel router" and not a WRT54GS router.

    The router seems to be dead. When the power is on, the "secure easy setup" and the ethernet leds just stay on.
    It cannot respond at 192.168.16.1 ( default address ) . Already reset the unit several times.
    Any one knows how to re-flash the firmware in this unit ?

    tks.

    I personally have not seen anything come across this board about that router except a mention in passing.

    Have you tried manually setting the ip-address on your computer to say 192.168.16.3 and trying to open 192.168.16.1 in the browser?

    I don't think Linksys has released any firmware for this box, but it should be covered under 3-year warranty, so unless you've opened it up before -- just contact Linksys for replacement.

    stangri,

    Yes, I've already tried to access the web interface using a manual configured ip, with no response.
    I'd never opened the hardware box and you are correct about the warranty. The problem : I'm living in Bazil and bought the hardware last year in US. To send it to Linksys US I need a return adress in US.

    Tks !
