WRT54GS V3 now "limited connectivity"

    I have a WRT54GS V3, after flashing thru the web interface with DD-WRT v23 I can no longer connect to the router. It searches and then gives “limited connectivity†error. After reading the some threads it sounds like I may need to “reset nvramâ€. I’m new to wireless networking, how do you reset nvram? Is this what I need to do? Also, what is the correct procedure for flashing new firmware? Is this considered a "bricked" router?

    you need to connect to the router via a wired connection, turn telnet on and "erase nvram; reboot" without the quotes.

    Thanks for the reply. This is probably a stupid question, how do you turn "on telnet"? in the dos prompt i typed "telnet". and then "erase nvram; reboot", says invalid command. thanks for your help.

    First, you need to turn on telnet in your router's firmware - sometimes referred to as "telnet daemon". Then at a command prompt type "telnet" and hit enter. Substitute a different ip address if your router's is different. You'll probably be prompted for your router's password and then you get a "#" prompt. Then give it the "erase nvram; reboot".
