HELP!!!My router bricked out of nowhere and it has all dim lights and wont do anything...I cant ping it either. What happened was I decided to hard reset my router and boom no boot,all was going well until I did this. So I decided to recover it through Serial with my DKU 5 and I dont know how...
I used the cable once to fix the BSY error on my barracuda 7200.11. I forgot witch cables do what so I looked on the internet and they all had different colors!!?? Mines have orange, green, blue, white, and black. And on top of that I dont know what does what on the Serial port on the router, please help. Is it the same as my wrt54g v8?
The dim lights symptom almost looks like a power off issue.
These routers have a crappy power supply. Try this: make sure the power adapter is plugged into the wall receptacle or power bar. Disconnect the power jack from the back of the router, wait 30 seconds and plug it back in.
That should cure it.
i have the same prob. had a working ddwrt flashed router. did the initial flash and reflashed a newer one off the ftp. worked for a few weeks and boom all leds lights on, no response when connecting my eth cable. 30/30/30 not working. doing research regarding the e1000 it seems like theres a lot of other folks having the same problem.
thanks for the nokia cable link i ordered one and hope to fix mine.
Like you, I got my E1000 bricked because I went from a DD-WRT to a TomatoUSB (tomato-NDUSB-1.28.8754-vpn3.6)
The fact is that I do not get any IP address when I connect my LAN cable to it.
Someone, mentioned a Nokia cable... Is that really working? If so, which one is the right one? In addition to this, once I got the cable, what is the next step? An above all, what screwdriver do I need to buy to open my router up?
