Hi
In the linksys WAP54G modem.
I changed the CPU overclocking to 250Mhz.
The router is no longer configurable and does not receive an IP.
Is there a way to revive the modem?

Does it have a reset button?

Yes.
I do hard reset but it did not change.
Detects local area connection but does not get IP.

If you read the wiki, this is a tricky device to run DD-WRT on. Best advice I can give is read through the wiki and use any tips and tricks there. Outside of that, research the forum.

I did not get a positive result on the wiki.
This is the reason for raising it in the forum.

I found a solution through tftp
The upgrade is successful, but I still do not have access to the GUI web and I do not ping.
I also hard reset(30/30/30).
Do I have to do anything else?

Are you trying to connect via wired ethernet or wireless? You may have to connect to the wireless first. Some of these WAP devices are a little screwy.

I connect with wire.
Wireless is not detected.
Do I need to install the original Linksys firmware first And then put the dd-wrt firmware?

If you are TFTP recovering it, you should probably flash stock Linksys firmware since this device only uses the micro_generic.bin firmware images from DD-WRT. Again, per the wiki, these things are tricky to run DD-WRT on them, but it can be done. There's only a couple of firmware versions recommended in the wiki, also, so not sure if you can run the most recent builds as nobody has probably tried and reported.

Hi

WAP54G 3.1 here. Never been updated since 2010 Smile

Pretty sure I tried some new releases last spring, but so far I remember, with bad results.

Code:
Router Name
DD-WRT
Router Model
Linksys WRT54G/GL/GS
Firmware Version
DD-WRT v24-sp2 (08/07/10) micro - build 14896

Firmware: DD-WRT v24-sp2 (08/07/10) micro
Time: 00:02:25 up 2 min, load average: 0.23, 0.08, 0.02
WAN: Disabled


Still working... But with no use for long time ago.

Do whatever but AFAIK the r35531 was bestest on the WAP for what I use.
\
NOTE: that is only used as a WDS link from house to shop then wired to a WRT54Gv8 as AP
It is WDS linked to a WRT54Gv2.0 ..... all this mess is far end of my WDS link via E2100ls
short up time due to power blinks down that way
