    Ok, so I had I think it was ver 24. RC3 on this router, just put it on. Set the router cpu to the 250s like normal and " " my my interner, access to my router and all died, looked at the router and the power light was constantly blinking, and the one ethernet port light i was hooked into was blinking. after doing some fiddeling around, I grounded pin 16 to the left anttena jack and got a response from the router in my constiant pinging, still a blinking power light but a slow constiant flash from the DMZ light i tryed to tftp the factory firmware and it didnt go just hung there, so i did the pin 16 thing again and as soon as it started reponding again, i tftp the factory firmware and it said "success", no change in the router after waiting 5 minutes, so i power cycled and just the power light and the ethernet port light, I have to do the pin 16 thing everytime to get a reponse and i cant log onto the routers page or nothing ,this thing is giving me the run around, I tryed manually setting IPs and all, any advice? sorry this is so long. Robert :)

    You need to use a JTAG to get it back.

    Its been posted that you never jump the cpu to 250 from the default because you can brick the router. Just as you did. You are supposed to gradually increase it in increments until you find a stable speed.

    well, i installed a fan off of a AMD heatsink into the top inside of the router, its one of the slim fans, and soldered it to the power plug, so when i plug it in it would turn on, I also installed a heatsink on the broadcom chip and the intel cpu. I did all this about 2 years ago when I first bought the router and Iv always ran it that high, along the the RF chip pussing 200mw for almost 2 years straight running DD-WRT, never unpluged the router and never had a problem, and the heatsinks were always cool to the touch, but still, if its not fried, ill be surprised after how much i abussed this thing, lol, dont really care, a friend gave me a v6 WRT54G that i put DD-WRT on, not as much memory but does the job, only thing i miss that was on the full version of that firmwear was the second site scan thas not on the micro...ill jtag it on a rainny day. Thanks
