    I have a WRT54G Version 4 router that is bricked. I follow the procedures outlined and short pins 15 and 16, I am able to get a ping reply.

    The trouble starts when I try to TFTP the new firmware into the router. I type everything outlined in the procedure and I constantly get a "timeout occured" error when trying to tftp the new firmware.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    how long do you wait to try to TFTP the firmware over after you start getting ping requests? I waited about a min after getting ping replies and the TFTP server had already shut down. I ended up using 2 computers so that as soon as I started getting replies, I started trying to TFTP the firmware over. Hope this helps.
