WRT54G V4 Power still flashing after successful upgrade

    I have a WRT54G v4 that I have successfully upgraded via the Linksys Upgrade tool. I assume after the upgrade, the router reboots, but then the Power light still flashes.

    I can ping the router and upgrade again, but cannot access the WEB GUI. I have tried the Linksys Upgrade tool, as well as using a tftp tool from their website. I am upgrading with their latest firmware version 4.30.5.

    Is there anything else I should try? Do I need to get a JTAG cable and go that route. From what I have read, it seems as if I need to erase the NVRAM.

    Does this sound right?

    Thanks in Advance.

    They're bricks. Start researching de-bricking techniques. FYI, I have JTAG cables for sale. E-mail me if interested. abessey(at)runbox.com. Good luck!!

    weird, same happend to me today with my WRT54G and Thibor 15c. was having some trouble, net would keep dropping so rebooted, now just flashing power and ping but no internet. Or config page for that.

    I have tried all the de-brick methods apart from the JTAG cable, I managed to get it from no ping to responding, I can TFTP and run the firmware util but the damn light just keeps on flashing.

    Ive just bought a WRT54GS, V5 though :( cant find the L models anywhere.

    solved it.

    Appears when I touched pins 15 and 16 it melted the solder a little so the pins were then touching, the device was then in a constant state of erasing and rebooting.

    I took a stanley knife and carefully scored between the pins to seperate them, turned on, flashed and 30 seconds later all working.
