make sure you are using the proper power supply, and go through each step of note 6 of the peacock and the serial recovery wiki article carefully. You cannot have damaged the cfe with serial.

Hey Murrkf,

Yeah I have been using the same power adapter since the begining without any problem. It is the default value 12V 0.5A power adapter comes inside of the router box. On the other hand I tried another 12V 1.5A power (very sure working one of another device) and same problem still consists (all leds continously lid dim ).

I have all read peacock 6 article and observed no life indication on router even through same serial connection way that I succeeded to flash after many struggle. Only option which I did not try on the article is jtag option. But I have really no idea how I will get the cable, how I will solder pins on board and pin matches of cable on board etc.. On the other hand I need to get a paid software 5buck which I even do not know If it worths for this and the result will work for me Smile

Yeah you might be right I have could not damaged the CFE but the thing which had damaged the CFE might be my impatience and I had cut power cycle before it finished all booting period and 2-3 times rebooting!

Possibly in your good hands it could be given life back but with me it seems really hard due to my above explantions.

Thanks for your taking time, reading and trying to figure the problem out.

I tried everything to unbrick my linksys e1200 v1. The only solution for me to fix it it's to short the chip pins and refresh 192.168.1.1 web page a couple times. It's also work with all linksys E series and models.

Moderator Edit: Thanks to the necro-jack and huge image, the padlock came out. P.S. this information is already known, so you wasted your first post on remedial knowledge.
