I soldered the 2mb chips on wgr-s, started up, jtag wrt54g -strobeonly confirmed that 2mb chip is there. I tried to flash cfe and no flash chip found. Exactly the same behaviour on two routers. So i plugged unplugged them, resoldered connections, nothing. Next weekend I'll try to solder original 1mb chips back to see if they work.
I have read thru this thread and still unable to find the program name to flash the whole cfe. As Jtag cannot be used whats the other option?
Any help is appreciated. Regards
The issue of changed wan/lan ports is resolved by modification of cfe. You DO NOT HAVE to change vlan settings anymore!
Here you have final cfe for wgr614v6 2MB rom/8MB ram.
Default IP is 192.168.1.1 for tftp
I attach GUI cfe editor too. See and compare variables with old cfe file.
I am still thinking about reset button issue. By default reset button is wired to gpio 14. So, it means that reset_gpio=14 variable should be in the cfe. I suspect that reset button will be working only whilst powering router on or whilst firmware failure. Whilst normal working I see that firmware changes reset button support onto gpio=6 and without additional wiring to gpio 6 the reset button does not work normally.
Has anyone any experience in that issue?

Is there ANY way to upgrade a wgr614-v6 without using jtag? I have tried 'every' non-surgical way described in this chain line-by-line with no success; e.g. the telnet process using the TelnetEnable.exe app, etc...
Isn't there a micro .chk image that could simply be used via the orig Netgear webgui?!
