WRT54GL Problem

Discussion in 'HyperWRT Firmware' started by dragonzzz, Jul 26, 2006.

    Hello,

    Just bought a WRT54GL, cause I had a WRT54G v5 at home.

    But after a few days I wanna try some firmwares out, and 2day I flashed it with hyperwrt.
    After flashing it says 100% and i thought YESH Finished!!! :D
    But after a few minutes i couldnt connect the router.
    The router leds are on. The Internet and lan leds. And the power.

    But when i'm going to the network settings i don't have a IP, and if i try to goto 192.168.1.1 , it says cannot connect server or something else.

    Is it possible i flashed the wrong firmware? And did i bricked my router?!?!

    Thnx.....

    What version of HyperWRT did you flash it with? Are any of the LED's blinking? Can you ping the router?

    ATM, i'm connecting with my old WRT54G, But with the second networkcard i don't have a IP (the networkcard that's connected too the GL)

    I used the hyperwrt.org version.. dunno what version that is :S:S And Only the Power led is blinking, and the lan is on.
    I dont have a IP so can't ping the router...

    I think i used the wrong firmware :S

    start pinging your router with

    ping -t 192.168.1.1

    whilst ping does its thing, pull the power lead out of the back of the WRT54G and then plug it back in again. if you see the ping working and return the ping, then this is the window of opertunety. stop ping command (CTRL-C) then load the auto updater program eneter the details into the program 192.168.1.1 and admin

    the power off/on the ouer and lick upgrade on the program. this should work (f your able to ping the router for a short period.)

    The router will always default to 192.168.1.1 if it goes into TFTP auto-recovery mode.
    ftp://ftp.linksys.com/pub/network/tftp.exe to get TFTP

    Basically, have TFTP ready to transfer, then click start and you will see it start to fail. IMMEDIATELY power on your router and if it's TFTP'able, you'll see one of the next tries succeed and it'll upload the firmware. If that doesn't work, or you can't ping your router (and you need to have a static IP to do all of this - I just use 192.168.1.2), then you've probably bricked it and you'll need to use the JTAG method to unbrick it.
