    I've tried to erase nvram, flash nvram...all I get is a power light blinking, and all the LAN ports light up. I downloaded the latest linksys firmware and renamed it to nvram.bin (FYI).

    I could just burn it and get another one, but I'm doing this to give to a friend of mine who can't afford to get a router.

    Any help would be very much appreciated

    ok after more reading I think I've really pooched this thing. Not quite understand what I was doing...I erased the cfe and wholeflash...don't suppose anyone would have a linksys v6 cfe.bin and wholeflash.bin?
