    HELP! Killed wl-500g by flashing old firmware


    I think I killed my 500g but am not sure it it is totally dead! Help would be much appreciated.

    I flashed the firmware from to in an attempt to stop the constant packet loss but the update program seemed to die, and when i unplugged then plugged in the router the PWR light flashes on/off every 1.5 seconds or so. I can't connect via the LAN port when it it plugged directly into my computer's ethernet port and it cant be found over the wireless. Is I dead? or is there anyway I can restore any firmware? Please let me know if there is anything I can do. I don't know anything about telnet sooo.... please bare with me I'm a but new to this.

    Thanks for your help

    Arrow Have you tried "Upgrading HOWTO"?

    Styno made nice description Firmware upgrading HOWTO. This step by step procedure is applicable for downgrading as well.
