WRT160NL Router is not accessible

Hello all,

This is the first time I use OpenWRT. I just recovered a Linksys WRT160NL which I bought 10 years ago, it was still working well.

Today, I accidentally flashed snapshot firmware so I somehow successfully install LuCI with sysupgrade command. After accessing LuCI, I flashed the latest factory.bin firmware through webpage. There was a statement and I saw that statement for 20 mins but the router didn't restart so I unplug it. Now I cannot ping, use ssh command or anything else to communicate with the router at all.

Is there any suggestion?

Flashing OpenWrt from OpenWrt you need to use the sysupgrade image. The factory.bin will brick it.

The device page describes a TFTP recovery process. Here you would use the factory.bin, or original Linksys firmware.
