    Hi everyone,
    My WRT54G v1.0 bricked after I updated the firmware to DD-WRT v 23 sp1. I managed to use the pin short trick on pins 15 and 16. I can ping it all the time after using the pin trick, but when I used the TFTP utility from this site, it tells me it cannot connect to the server. I also set my LAN card to 10mb half and tried to no avail. When I try the WRT54G Auto Updater, it uploads completely to 100% and finishes, but it does not reboot as I have seen other posts say it should. I manually reset the router by both unplugging it and then other times by using the reset button, but the linksys firmware 4.30.5 doesnt load. It just reverts back to its bricked state. Is my router dead?

    How long do you wait for it to reboot? It could take five minutes or longer for it to reboot.
