    WRT54GS v1.1

    I tried most of the procedures to un-brick this unit and gotten some success but still have a problem that I have not found in any of the past posts.

    I used the procedure : short pins 15&16 and apply power. Pings got replies pretty quick. I then used tftp to flash DD-WRT. It also was successful. After wrenching my arm by patting myself on the back, I noted the power LED continued to flash rapidly and the DMZ LED flashes on for 4 seconds then off for four seconds. The port 1 LED is on continuously as it should and pings are successful.

    I tried reaching the device via IE and with no luck.

    I decided that maybe DD-WRT was a bad bin so I reflashed with the latest bin from Linksys (WRT54GSv3_4.47.4.001_fw.bin).

    Same result... power continues to flash rapidly ETC.

    Pings are still successful.

    I have left it in that state for now. Have I missed some post that explains this? Has anyone run into this and have a clue how to deal with it??

    Hope the flash chip is not permanently damaged, have you tried the dd-wrt recommended 30/30/30 reset?

    I wasn't aware of 30/30/30 reset but did try it to no avail. Bummer!
