    Okay, well basically, I didn't read that this fix was for wrt54gs routers, and not just WRT54G. So I ran the command on dd-wrt firmware.

    nvram set sdram_init=0x0A
    nvram set sdram_ncdl=0
    nvram commit

    And now all the local port lights are on, and the power light blinks, and I can't ping it. Is this router done for?

    ....Trying this on an unsupported unit will brick your router, recoverable only through a JTAG based erasure of NVRAM. ...

    Yea I was in a hurry. I'm fully aware of my ****up, no need to give me all the dots.

    Thanks for your help. And can you provide a link on what you talked about, "JTAG based erasure of NVRAM." Or can I not do that with special tools?

    Maybe I should just take it to bestbuy and go "uhh..it stopped working randomly."

    Edit: Well I read up on it, and I'd rather not go through all the trouble. Hopefully I can just get it replaced and next time I won't make such a dumb mistake.
