How to hard reset WAP54G with DD-WRT?

    I accidentally screwed up the WAP54G by setting VLAN of both WiFi and all network ports to None... I think that means I effectively disconnected the LAN port and the WiFi at the same time and since the reset button does not work on DD-WRT micro, now there is no way to reset the device... :frown:

    Anybody has any idea how I can hard reset the device, including opening up the device?

    Many thanks.

    I shouldn't play around with the VLAN setting, I really shouldn't...:whip:

    I dealt with this a while back and somehow reset it in the middle of trying to do the pin jump trick since I didn't have a JTAG cable (and didn't care to make one for what was basically a disposable WAP54G). I'd very carefully try shorting the appropriate pins... If I can find the info at the DD-WRT forum I'll link it here.

    Thanks in advance. The reason I toyed with the WAP54G with DD-WRT, was to try to make it as a pure Wireless AP... apparently this does not work as the LAN port cannot be mapped to WAN... unless that can be done even I rescue the WAP54G back to life it is still a sitting duck to me... :p

    I'm not following. You want to make it a repeater? Or you want to use it as a wired router using the WiFi interface as the WAN side?

    The other way round - originally the WAP54G was doing as a wireless bridge which I no longer need. I flashed it with DD-WRT and was naively thinking whether I can treat it as a wireless router so that I can connect an ADSL modem at the back of the WAP54G and then allows some wireless devices (NDSl to be precise) to access the net... :tongue:

    Does the ADSL modem assign a public IP to the connected device or take one itself and pass on a private address? If it keeps the public, then aside from losing the firewall I don't see the problem. If it assigns the public, then I'm not sure... Can you not tell it to get a WAN address by DHCP? I've never played with a WAP to do anything but basic AP or client bridge modes.

    For ADSL modem, I will have to use PPPoE, which means that it is neither public addresses nor DHCP.


    I also use the WAP54G extensively as wireless bridge, until yesterday I screwed it up in VLAN setting that is...
