When I turn on my FON Linksys WRT54GS v4 Router, the Power Light Goes on, then the DMZ light. Neither is blinking, but the DMZ light won't turn off. This stops my connection to the internet on both wired and wireless connections. I can't access the Management Console/Web Settings either [192.168.10.1], and I'm sure it does not have corrupt firmware "Bricked". How do I fix this?


Thanks,

Retrac1324

Ok, so I have one router that is bricked, a WRT54GS v5. When I go to 192.168.1.1, it takes me to the management console that you showed me. I followed those instructions, but it returned "Upgrade Failed".


On the router I was originally talking about, a WRT54GS v4. It is not bricked, but the DMZ light won't turn off. I can't reach the Web Interface/Management Console.

Ok You have a dud unit.
There is a problem internally with the unit. Contact Linksys Technical Support.

Well I got this through FON, and they preloaded it with their own firmware which is 3rd party, therefor voiding my warranty. I guess I'll have to go talk to FON.
