    Could you please help me or give me a way to find a solution to this problem

    I just performed a firmware upgrade :

    * using the Alchemy v. 1.0 firmware as found on www.wrt54g.net

    * on a WRT54G v1.1 which before had its old Linksys firmware version 1.43 or something

    * via the web interface

    The upgrade seemed to be successful, but then I could not “continueâ€. And since, it is impossible to reach my router again :

    * the leds seem to be OK

    * but I’m unable to reach the router via its Web interface (typing in the address bar)

    * I cannot ping it using the same IP address : timeout !

    * there’s no access to the Internet via the router (to send this message I had to connect my PC directly to my modem)

    * I don’t know if a router upgrade resets all previous settings, but I had not changed the default router address before performing the upgrade

    * Important : I try to reach it via an ordinary Ethernet connection (no wireless access)

    * the Ethernet hub is OK (I can see and reach other PC’s on the local network)

    Thanks very much for your answer !

    press the reset button for 30 Seconds. then release it. wait for it to reboot, and see if that helps.
