    I have a strange problem on my WRT54GL v 1.1. Just after buying it I reflashed the device with DD-WRT, but then I changed to Thibor 15c. Just after upgrade I did a reboot by holding the back reset button for 30 seconds, then configured the router to match my needs and it worked fine for a few days. Then suddenly I found out one morning that it has reset itself to defaults during the night... OK, so I left the device unplugged for a few days, then today I started configuring it. Initially, I did the 30-seconds back-panel-reset once again, afterfards I connected to the router with browser (no problems so far) and configured a few things (cloned MAC, changed wireless settings, disabled the Secure Easy Setup thing, etc), then after reboot the router died:
    - boots up fine,
    - I can get a local IP by DHCP,
    - after a few seconds it reboots.

    The time from power up to reboot is so small that I can't even log in the administration panel... it keeps rebooting every 15 seconds or so. I tried to ping it, ping goes fine for 3-4 seconds and then router reboots.... anyone can help? what can I do now?

    Update: I managed to connect to it with tftp, got the "upgrade successful" message, but the router is dead now. After powering it up the power LED keeps blinking forever, I can't ping it... is it bricked?

    you need to tftp again. leave it alone until it reboots by itself

    Thanks for the hint :) I did it and I sucessfully reverted the firmware to the original Linksys. However, the main problem remains the same: I got reboot every 10-15 seconds. What's wrong? hardware failure?

    Definately sounds like a hardware problem. I'd exchange it for a new one.
