Recovering a bricked Linksys WRT54GL v1.1 using JTAG - Part 1: the hardware · theZedt
I got a Linksys WRT54GL v1.1 router that somewhat worked and somewhat didn't: it booted alright (no led errors), responded to ping on its default IP (, bot other than that, it did not respond on the web interface, nor telnet/ssh, nor dhcp. I tried the 30/30/30 reset , tried TFTP recovery - nothing worked. As it had the original Linksys firmware, at this point it was either a hardware failure or the only recovery course would be the JTAG reflash.
