    My buddy got a WRT54G v2 from an auction online. Long story short the seller sold it as functional and that clearly isn't the case. It shipped in/with the Linksys box but did not ship with an official CD. Instead it has some burned CD with a white printer label and the model on it. The point is that the not the default.. It will not soft-reset, hard-reset, or even reset using the hanger method. What else can we do or is this thing a lost cause? :confused:

    Thanks but like I said we've covered all of those steps.. The hairdairy link doesn't work but I found it elsewhere on the web. So he's out of luck?

    Get a hold of the auction company and return it. If they will not do anything get a hold of your States Attorney Office and let them go after them............. That is if you are in the US. If you are in another country, get a hold of your government and find out which department handels fraud.

    Thanks, we're in the process but I wanted to see if I could fix it.. he still needs one and now the money for it is tied up. I appreciate it though :)

    no, but since this is an auction purchase and the money can be returned he chose not to invest any more money into it.
