Alright this is going to sound really stupid, mainly because it is. I flashed my WRT54G V5 with dd-wrt.v24-12548_NEWD_micro and every thing was fine and working properly untill I misread the post on how to unlock 16mb of RAM I thought my router had. I ran the commands to do so and after that the router was unresponsive. The commands are for the WRT54GS and not the router I have. The power light flashes continually and the LAN lights are on solid. The DMZ light doesn't come on at all and I get no response from a ping.

Sounds like time for a JTAG

Thats what I thought would be said. I guess i'm off to Ebay. On a scale from 1 to 10, 10 be very difficult and 1 being easier than flashing the firmware what would you say the difficulty will be using the JTAG?

Have a look at this first

with this new adapter in buffered mode it should be fairly simple
