    I have a WRT54GS version 4 and I think it's bricked for good.
    All I did was:
    1. Accidentally pressed the dreaded Secure Easy Setup orange button.
    2. It started flashing white, I immediately disconnected power.

    Now I get a flashing power light and all ethernet lights are constantly on. The orange button doesn't light up anymore.

    The router cannot be pinged. I tried shorting pins 15 and 16 and others but nothing happens (I'm not sure the intel flash chip is even powered at this point).

    I had HyperWRT+Thibor old firmware.

    I can't believe how easy it was to brick this thing :(
