    For all those who are trying to or will try to debrick a router,be carefull on how you do it.I was trying to unbrick my Wrt54g v2.2 by shorting pins 15 and 16 when I dropped the scewdriver on the board and smoke came out of it,the router died on the spot,no more lights,no more power,just plain dead.Just bought a Wrt54g v3,I dont think I will try that again.

    Yes, it needs that smoke to run and if you let it out it quits working ;-)
