Bricked router
« on: April 12, 2011, 09:49:13 AM »
Howzit guys
I managed to brick my router (yay!). Anyone know how to unbrick it? Is the process router specific?

It's a Linksys WRT54G series.

How did you brick it in the first place ?

Was Flashing the memory (which I've done before) to get the bridge functionality and then bang!

Just shows you, a little knowledge is dangerous :D
Resistance is not futile; it is voltage divided by current (R=V/I)

Have you tried the 'usual', like pressing the reset button, or holding the reset button in while it powers up?
