Linksys Router Not Working

I have a linksys router model WRT54G. Everything was working fine until the router just stopped working. The power indicator is flashing and Ethernet ports 1, 3 & 4 are lit up as is Internet. WLAN is not lit up and the router is NOT currently connected to the internet. I have tried pushing the reset button but nothing happens, regardless of if I hold it & release or simply press it. When I unplug the router, it doesn't reset, just boots up with the same lights. The wireless network is not working. Any hints on how I could reset it?

I have bricked several WRT54G's, seeing all the lights solid consistentlyis usually not a good sign. There are a few things you can try: 1) (Easiest) Hold down the reset button while the router is plugged in for quite literally 30 seconds to 1 minute. No guarantee's with this one, but it's worth a shot. 2) Hardwire a laptop/desktop to the router, then boot it up, see if you can access the firmware ( default ip address in a browser). 3) (Most Difficult) Try downloading something like DD-WRT, and see if you can re-flash the firmware directly. Refer back, and I'll see if I can't find you some directions!

Good Luck, this can get frustrating real quick.

(4) Go to Radioshack and get a Netgear equivalent for $39.99 <- lol)
