    Hi guys I'm at my wits end at the moment so here's the deal.
    My normal linksys firmware was playing up so I decided to upgrade to dd-wrt v23 sp2. Found there was no problems in flashing the firmware and once completed I could access the router via the web gui. Problem was though I could access the gui I could change none of the settings, everything just timed out if I tried to change it.

    I thought this was probably exceedingly bad and decided to change back to linksys firmware only to find that any attempt to either TFTP or use the GUI to install different firmware failed. After three days of this I finally got fed up and decided to fuse pins 15 and 16. Low and behold this works and allows me to tftp the router new firmware. The problem however now is that I can't access this firmware through web gui. I can ping the router no issue but the power light continues to flash obviously meaning I haven't installed the firmware properlly. I'm using the linksys tftp utility to attempt to flash the firmware onto it. Any help would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance for your time.
