WAP11 2.2 need de-bricking help

    I'm trying to resurrect a WAP11 2.2 access point that's been on a shelf for about a year. As I recall it worked before, but....

    When I try to access the WAP11 from a browser I get the following form:
    Code:
    Firmware Upgrade
    
    File Path	(    )  Browse   Send  
     
          NOTICE !!
    
    # If you upload the binary file to the wrong TARGET, the router may not work properly or even could not boot-up again.
    OK, so it seems to want firmware, I'll oblige. I type in the path to linksys_11_1216nml.bin (which appears to be the right firmware, downloaded from the Linksys site) and click "send". It appears to be loading the code (activity lights flashing) but it bombs partway through. This leaves the ethernet connection hosed and the activity and link lights flashing at 1-sec intervals (green on, amber on, amber off, green off, repeat). The only recourse now is another 30-second reset-button treatment, after which I'm back to square one.

    Based on hints I've seen in this forum and elsewhere I've tried a few variations

    Connect direct to WAP11 with crossover cable (no other network devices)
    Use Static IP on the admin host, use 10Mb half-duplex
    Use TFTP (several different clients on several different OSes)
    Code:
    tftp> connect 192.168.1.251
    tftp> trace
    Packet tracing on.
    tftp> verbose
    Verbose mode on.
    tftp> binary
    mode set to octet
    tftp> put linksys_11_1216nml.bin
    putting linksys_11_1216nml.bin to 192.168.1.251:linksys_11_1216nml.bin [octet]
    sent WRQ <file=linksys_11_1216nml.bin, mode=octet>
    received ACK <block=0>
    sent DATA <block=1, 512 bytes>
    received ACK <block=1>
    ...
    sent DATA <block=1919, 512 bytes>
    received ACK <block=1919>
    sent DATA <block=1920, 512 bytes>
    received ACK <block=1920>
    sent DATA <block=1921, 0 bytes>
    sent DATA <block=1921, 0 bytes>
    sent DATA <block=1921, 0 bytes>
    sent DATA <block=1921, 0 bytes>
    sent DATA <block=1921, 0 bytes>
    Transfer timed out.
    
    I'm out of ideas. Any suggestions on how I might save this box?
