I somehow managed to brick my old WRT54G running 10.03.1 -- I was trying to reassign the WAN port to LAN. The wiki instructions for failsafe mode are from the wiki:
If you forget your password, have broken one of the startup scripts, firewalled yourself out, or corrupted the JFFS2 partition, you can get back in by using OpenWrt's failsafe mode:
- Unplug the power cord, press and hold the reset button, put in the power cord, when DMZ-LED lits up release the reset button. When done right, both Power-LED and DMZ-LED will start blinking. Now you can ping and telnet into 192.168.1.1
I get the blinking Power-LED and DMZ-LED but cannot get a network connection with any of the Ethernet ports.
Suggestions that don't involve modding my WRT54G?
