Dead WRT54GS? ;_;

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok so I tried flashing ddwrt to my router. It's a WRT54GS, and all was going good, followed instructions to the letter. Clicked on "upgrade firmware" button and it began perfectly. Then it came to a screen that said "rebooting". Then I tripped over the router's power cable and it shut off. I plugged it back in and all the Ethernet lights light up for a couple of seconds. It's connected to my modem and the line where my computer is plugged in(Line 1), the light is on. The "internet" light is also on. Only thing that isn't on is the "power" light. I tried pinging the router but i get no response. Is my router dead? ;_;

I'm assuming you've tried getting to the config page?

There are ways to recover from a bad flash with certain modems, but none of them are as simple as point and click stuff. They involve doing something physically to the modem. Let me see if I can pull up the page I read a while back.

edit:

Have a read.

Yeah I put 192.168.1.1 in IE9 and says no connection. And I've tried 30/30/30 reset with no dice.

Thanks, I came across that page before but didn't read it thoroughly. I sat and read it for 20 min and finally was able to get my router working again with tftp. Thanks again
