Hi,

Stupid I am, I upgraded my Linksys WRT54G V2 (EU) with the firmware made for
USA.

Now the power LED flash non stop and I have no access to the router.

All resets I did give me nothing more.

What to do ?
Is it possible to access the router and restart the flash procedure ?

Thanks

Regards,

Andre

First, you will need one of the executable firmware releases.

When something like this happened to me some time ago, the solution was to
switch Windows from a dynamically-assigned IP address to a fixed address in
the same subnet as the router (e.g. 192.168.1.5), use a subnet mask of
255.255.255.0, set the gateway to the address of the router (i.e.
192.168.1.1) and reboot. Then, connect the computer to the router, run the
firmware upgrade program and provide the address of the router.
