WRT54GS Autobricking?

    I have a WRT54GS (v1.1) that seems to have autobricked itself.

    I installed Alchemy 1.0 on it, a week ago, and everything seemed to have worked fine. But today, after a power-cycle, I cannot get any response from it.

    The power light is flashing. WLAN & DMZ lights are off. If I plug a cable into any of the four switch ports, or the internet port, then the corresponding light turns on, but I can't use dhcp to get an address, nor can I ping

    Pressing the reset switch for 30s (or more) has no effect. Pressing reset upon power-on has no effect.

    Why would the router suddenly do this? It seems rather dodgy to me for it not to be able to cope with a power outage.

    Is there any way I can get it going again, other than opening it up? I'd prefer not to have to void the warranty... it's only a week old.

    I did the same thing you just did. and now it is a paper weight. I created a new thred asking for help with JTAG as it seems to be the only recovery method possible now.

    Good luck with yours.
