Hi Guys, I have a WRT54G version 2. I bought it about 3 months ago, and though I cannot make sure what version of the firmware is now (since it's not working) - I think it's v2.02.2 - that's what it was when I bought it, I haven't attempted upgrading at all. My dad was using the computer this morning - he said everything was working fine until a power fluctuation (happens a lot in my town) ... I guess I got a hardware problem, but maybe not... After that - this is the state. The Power light blinks when the router is turned on - then remains steady, seems normal. However, the Internet light is rock steady as well. My laptop no longer detects any wireless connections, even when I'm right next to the router. I tried connecting physically to Ports 1 and 2 on the router - but DHCP fails to deliver an address. The appropriate LED on the router does light up and Windows does *not* say "Network cable is unplugged" I statically set my Ethernet IP to 192.168.1.2 and tried pinging, the light on the router blinks and I get a "Request timed out". This continues for as long as the ping is running. I tried resetting the router - pressed reset for 30 seconds with the power on (is this right? - I tried with the power off as well) . The light blinks after about 8 seconds - would turn steady and blink again - I read somwhere that you have to hold it down for 8 - 10 seconds. Anyhow - resetting does nothing - same problem as above. I tried from my desktop computer as well via a physical connection - same thing. I know this was caused by a power fluctuation - but maybe it only corrupted the firmware? Do you think I could get back by shorting 15 & 16? I am holding that off until I hear from you guys. Finally, I had someone buy the router for me from BestBuy in the US, I'm in India - I doubt they have international service centers - returning it is going to be difficult, to say the least I'm sure it's within warranty, but I wonder if the warranty covers situations like these (power fluctuation)? Any other suggestions to get going? Sharing my internet connectioin between my desktop and laptop is going to be a real pain until then. Appreciate any suggestions, Thanks in advance, Brian.
