    I have a WRT54GS v1 that I had overclocked with good results to 264 mhz and since i put a fan and some heatsinks in it I got greedy enough to try 280 and bricked the thing.
    The power light only flashes and reset button does nothing. I don't have a JTAG cable (or a parallel port for that matter) so i tried the pin shorting with no luck. The power light only flashes and it doesn't respond to a ping.
    To make matters worse, I noticed that the intel nvram chip which used to get mildly warm, now gets excruciatingly hot very quickly. Is there anything I can do at this point or is it a lost cause?
    thanks in advance.
