This morning, while trying to diagnose a DSL connection problem, I decided to recycle power on my WHR-HP-G54 running v23sp2. While pulling out the power connector and reinserting, I had my hand on top of the unit, and accidentally pressed the AOSS button while doing it. As soon as I reinserted the power, constant green lights and can't reset, etc. Wham-o, bricked router.
So... the question is whether there is any known condition which can cause bricking on this router if the AOSS button is pressed at an inopportune moment - such as when plugging in the power? Inquiring minds want to know...
anyway to disable that button - or since its during booting you cant do much ? _________________ 2x WRT54G v5, 2x WRT54G v2

I'll be interested to read the answer to the above question. Also, can you simply re-flash the device since one basically has to follow a de-brick procedure to get the unit flashed in the first place? _________________ Buffalo WHR-G54S

After installing an SD card and painting my Buffalo WHR-HP-G54, it was just a bit tight going back together. Unbeknown to me, the plastic bezel had the AOSS stuck down. When I booted up, it bricked. I tried everything I know, and the only way I recovered it was via JTAG. And even at that, clearing the NVRAM wasn't sufficient. I had to wipe out the kernel and tftp the firmware back in. Hope that helps.
