    Hi all:

    I have a WRT54G v1.0 totally bricked, no power led “on†neither LAN nor WAN led blink when AC/DC converter is plugged in. I’ve found some threads explaining a recovery procedure but my router has a non Intel flash chip. The flash chip is labeled with two text lines: “40ST1041AX†in the upper and “0312S†in the lower line. I’ve found a flash chip’s PDF but I think it’s not exactly the same installed in the router, however I presumed pin-out is the same.

    My question is: Is possible to revive this bricked router? I should apply the procedure described on this thread (http://www.linksysinfo.org/forums/showthread.php?t=47259)?

    Please, help me to solve this problem, I live in Cuba and, as I suppose everybody knows, here is almost impossible to buy this kind of equipment.:frown:

    Thanks in advance and best regards;:redface:

    Yuri - i know it's silly question but.
    Is your power adapter for router OK? Can you measure if there is some output?
    Do not short any pins on flash the chip.
