    Hello all....
    last night, for no apparent reason, both my WRT54G AND my DSL modem rolled over and quit working.
    Fixing the modem was easy. I was able to access it via my browser and reload all the settings.... works perfectly.

    The WRT54G is another matter. ALL lights are dead EXCEPT the red diagnostic light. That light comes on for only 3 or 4 minutes after unplugging the router and plugging it back in. The red light is on but very dim and after the 3 or 4 minutes it fades out completely.
    I have attempted to follow linksys' instructions but there is no conectivity at all (cannot ping the router).

    I can get that dim DIAGNOSTIC light to come back on by pulling the plug and reapplying power... but that's it...

    I wasn't home but my wife "thinks" it was raining... that could mean lightning nearby??? Who knows....

    Anybody have any Idea how I might try to revive the thing before I have to spend $$ on a new one???

    thanks so much to all

    It's broken... Have you tried hard reset: 30+ secs of pushing RESET button?
