Whatever you do, don't load

http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/downloads/release candidates/DD-WRT v24 RC6.2/Broadcom/Linksys/WAP54G_v1.1/dd-wrt.v24_micro_generic.bin

on your WAP54G (any version). IT WILL FAIL AND YOUR UNIT WILL BECOME A BRICK.

I found out the hard way.

So 24RC5 is the only recommended Micro version for the WAP54g_V1.1?

The newest bin I could get to work is:

http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/downloads/release%20candidates/DD-WRT%20v24%20RC5/GENERIC%20BROADCOM%20(Linksys,%20Asus%20etc.)/dd-wrt.v24_micro_generic.bin

Remeber, these little WAP54G's don't have much Flash nor RAM so they can't handle a bigger bin. After loading the micro bin and turning off all the things that aren't needed, I end up with only 5-6% free memory.

Has anyone else tried the DD-WRT v24 RC6.2 bins? What was your result?

Do anyone know a way to hard wire a JTAG header to the board?
Please let's me know.
Thanks

^ Open it up and look for jtag 12 pin port.
Depending on your version of the WAP54G.
WAP54G V1.0 there are at least 2 different v1.0 boards, one with a JTAG , other without it.
WAP54G v1.1 does not have jtag port.
Those with the jtag port WAP54G v2.0 V3.0 v3.1 use the standard Jtag cable for Linksys routers.

Hi,

I'm sure this has been asked several times so I apologize in advance.

I have 2 WAP54G's V1.1 that are bricked. If they don't have a JTAG port, how do I debrick them?

You probably can't. I had one donated to me for a project...I was never able to find JTAG connection points on that unit.

You are out of luck with them....feel free to make them dumpster food....you'll just feel better after the grieving is over.

Wow, that's a real bummer. I see a J25 label near what appears to be a JTAG port on the circuit board, could that it or is this something else? Let me know if I need to provide a picture.

Is that the JTAG port on the bottom right of the pic?

Nope...no JTAG...that is a UART port...the J1 is Serial though...but that won't help much.

If the board is long and narrow...it is the one without JTAG support...I believe the supported V1.1 unit had more of a "square" mobo.

No way to solder JTAG header pins onto the board? So I'm completely out of luck with these 2 WAP54G's & they are as good as trash? Sad

You can certainly try to find the JTAG contact points...I was unsuccessful. I played with one for about 6 hours without luck.

Give it a try...if you find them...post your finding....you'll be a hero to many.

Remove the NIC card...under there were several 4.7K ohm chip resistors....see if you can figure out the combination. (generally the 4.7K's are connected to JTAG ports....but not always)

Dunno if this adds any insight to this problem but the mother board had this chip in mine.

It says that it has a RST# pin but I couldn't find much else on what to do with that bit of info.
