Router not working. - Page 2

Your firmware may have been corrupted.

Try this solution and see if it works for you: My router's red Diag light (or Power light) is blinking. How do I fix this?

Yep. I've read DD-WRT wikipedia support, and it says if all the port lights aren't on constant, then its not actually BRICKED, and should be able to be fixed, but nothing is working for me.

Once I get to the "pinging the router", it doesn't work. When I ping it, it just times out everytime, or says 'destination host unreachable'

You are on a wired connection to the router right?

You followed the instructions for the LAN Properties correct?

Everything should work as it should as I had to go through the same thing when I flashed my WRT54G v2.0 with HyperWRT.

I'm typing this, from my computer, from another router.


I have my second PC connected to the router ( with no internet connected - should i have it connected? ) I've changed my static ip, as well as changing my value to 10Base-t, half duplex mode. Then I type ping 192.168.1.1 and get "Destination host unreachable".

Also - On the linksys page it says something about an 'auto-upgrade utility', and I don't see it anywhere..

No, you don't need Internet connected on that router.

If you have followed the 10Base-t, etc instructions, you should be able to ping the router.

Try using the "boot_wait" in the attachment to ping the router.

Included is the Auto Upgrade Utility. I couldn't find it on the download page either. Luckily I had it saved on my external hard drive.

There is an 'advanced' revival method here. Link

I finally got to where I could ping the router...connected with the firmware upgrade utility...it did it successfully, after, i reset the router, unplugged, plugged it, but it still just blinks....is there something else I'm missing that i was supposed to do?

Nevermind, I did the same thing again, and it stopped blinking..thank you so so much, +REP x100...if i could.
