I upgraded the WRT300N rev2 firmware to a new one by following the two stepped process. What happened was that after the first stage things stopped working. I was not able to connect to the original IP-address or the default one 192.168.1.1. The WLAN AP is not either visible anymore nor does it try to acquire any IP-address. The AP is not blinking the power-light and the AP looks normal but nothing works. I got some activity when I powered up the AP and simultaneosly pressed the reset-button. This put the AP into such mode that the power-light started blinking and the AP started to send gratuitous ARPs, which revealed that the AP has taken IP-address 192.168.0.10 and this can also be verified by using ping. So even though nothing seems to work, the basic IP-connectivity is there and waiting something to happen. This is probably some kind of Atheros internal recovery-mode. After this I have tried to push new firmware image via using TFTP, FTP and trying to connect via web-access but AP does not seem to want to do anything like that. I was wondering if any of you would have any past experience how I could reapply the firmwares using this recovery mode. Any suggestions are very welcome.
