Is my WRT54GSV4 damaged?

    As the topic says, I use the Linksys WRT54GSV4 router.

    The problem is that only the Power LED is flashing.

    Then i use the Revival by Void Main on http://voidmain.is-a-geek.net/redhat/wrt54g_revival.html#0 .

    This method works finde, my router is now reachable. However if i want to flash some firmware over tftp ( Windows ) , i get the message that the upgrade is done successfully. But it isnt so. i can ping the router with a correct response, however its not possible to reach the Web-Interface. This behavior is shown on each firmware version i want to use.

    Do you have some hints what i can do to repair this router?
    Or is the router damaged at all so i have to buy a new one?

    after reflash over tftp you must wait for the DMZ light to go off (~1-2 min), then you can configure router or reset to factory default: keep pressed reset button and power off then power on your router power cord. After that leave router alone for 2 minutes

    Real TFTP application for linksys you can find here ftp://ftp.linksys.com/pub/network/tftp.exe

    I can't flash the mini generic firmware


    Message: "Code pattern incorrect"


    I try to flash the original firmware, flashing works, but router not after restarting

    ok, try dd-wrt.v23_mini_wrt54gsv4.bin firmware.

    After reflash wait, don't reset router. You'll interrupt firstboot.
    Wait for the DMZ light to go off, then you can configure it to your liking

    after reflash wait for 10 min, maybe bootwait time out limit is set to high (like in freeman firmware)

    And use (on WinOS) tftp -i 192.168.1.1 put firmware_file.bin
