(cross-posted on dslreports.com) Well, I think I broke it, unless you guys know differently. Got a WRT54GC yesterday as a gift. A friend of mine pointed out that some of the hacked WRT54G firmware has the ability to boost reception, so I figured it would work, and without doing any research, I flashed the firmware. Big mistake. The router still worked, but the Web interface was inaccessible, so I couldn't re-flash the firmware. So, remembering that most Linksys routers can update their firmware using TFTP, I dutifully downloaded TFTP2 and the latest revision of the firmware from the Linksys web site, flashed the firmware again, and...it's a brick. Right now it works as a passthrough, but that's it. I can't ping it, can't do anything with it. All the lights are on, and they blink occasionally, but it's dead as a doornail. I found a solution on another site for unbricking a WRT54G or 54GS, involving shorting pins 15-16 on the Intel chipset, but I opened the GC up last night and it doesn't have an Intel chipset, or at least doesn't have one similar to this one. So am I out of luck? Is there no other way to un-brick this thing?
