hi, i am using a Asus WL-520gu, and was successfully using SGTPepperKSU's VPN mod, but then i pasted in a very long OpenVPN key. immediately i noticed some other random GUI settings were now mistakenly empty. oh boy, i've seen this before, i probably overflowed the NVRAM buffer, so i checked $ free and sure enough it said I had negative bytes free. it then locked up. i thought it was bricked, and i can not see it in the Asus Firmware tool. luckily i was and am still able to tftp to its OLD IP address (10.10.10.1), and i have, a dozen times already, but i still cant get to the GUI. so i can easily get the router into Recovery Mode, at which point I can see the ping is TTL=100 and then i can successfully tftp any firmware i choose. but thats as far as i get. i've tried tftping the special "clear nvram" firmware, from the steps here: http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Asus_WL-520GU wl500g-clear-nvram.trx and that too, is successfully tftp'd. i wait 5min. then tftp a known firmare. yet i can never get the IP to reset back to defaults 192.168.1.1, i can never get to a GUI. it is effectively bricked, despite being able to TFTP, due to the bad NVRAM i think. the only other thing i could try would be the short out pin 10 trick. http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Index:FAQ but i thought that was only for people who could not get into recovery mode, which isnt me. i just need to clear bad nvram. hate to open it up if thats not needed. do i have any other options? thank you for any suggestions.
