    Well, I done bricked my router. I bought a WRT54G v8 yesterday, took it home and first thing I did was try and load DD-WRT on it. I failed spectacularly. Ended up with a device that wouldn't respond to pings at any time, and didn't even have a power light. Just a link light. No recovery method worked, though I didn't try shorting the pins, as I didn't want to crack the case. I managed to return the unit and get a shinybrandnew one, and I still want to get DD-WRT on there, but my previous fiasco has hammered home the fact that I am an utter noob in this arena. I need the dumbest possible tutorial, as bricking a second router will most definitely cause a few raised eyebrows, were I to try and do a second return. Little help? Note, my serial number starts with CDFG. Thanks for your help.
