Hi, I've tried to load a ddwrt firmware on my Linksys wrt54g ver 6.0.
I followed this guide:
http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Linksys_WRT54G_v5.0_%26_5.1_%26_6.0
but probably something was wrong.
I followed all steps but when I tried the Tft software the attempts weren't enough to erase and to flash the firmware.
Accidentally I unplugged the charger and then I reinserted the charger and the router gave me the Remote Management but I don't know why I tried to unplugged one more time the charger and re-inserted it and now I can't reach the router's ip.
Now the power lamp blinks and if I try to hit a 30-30-30 Hard reset I have always the same outcome.
What do you suggest me?

Since I can reach the Remote Management page how can I do to flash the ddwrt firmware?
From which point of guide do I need to follow to get the ddwrt flashing?

edit:
From this point where I can access at Management page I've followed the guide from point 4 in Problem and Workaround to an inaccessible Linksys Wrt54g v6.0 router.
At point 6 and 7 I don't get "Upgrade Success" message.
Unlike of point 8 I can still get back to Management Mode.
Anyway I keep on to follow the steps but the power led didn'tstop blinking, etc. as has written in step 12.
Any suggestion?

At http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Linksys_WRT54G_v5.0_%26_5.1_%26_6.0
toward bottom -- read Interesting but non-sense notes:
Also, be patient doing all steps...

Find a point where you are and what pings you get and do accorddingly.

CLEAR browser cache and restart before attempting to access router via http.

(don't leave a v23 firmware on your router / if installed then upgrade to v24)

Thanks my friend.
I followed the section of guide you suggested me and at 2 point, where you read you need to upload vxworks_prep_03.bin and My54gImage.bin files I can't get Upgrade success message. My router is stuck on Management page.
I tried to use the Tftp for 'dd-wrt.v24-12548_NEWD_micro' flashing but I can't get success (how long do I need to wait it?).
After the power cycle I come back into Management mode.
I don't understand about booting in tftp or without tftp as has written there.
How can I fix it?
