Hello dd-wrt users, I hope you're having a fantastic day. I am running into a problem with setting up my recently flashed Broadcom router.

Router Information
- ROUTER MODEL - WRT54GS2 V1
- SERIAL# - CUQ01J654721

I successfully flashed DD-WRT onto my router last night after following the guide here:
https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Linksys_WRT54G2_v1.3_%26_WRT54GS2_v1.0#Linksys_WRT54GS2v1

I was able to access the gateway menu through the default gateway IP address. I went to sleep with the intent to finish setting it up this morning. However after turning it on this morning, I was unable to make a connection (Network Cable Unplugged, and I checked the Ethernet settings to ensure that my static IP address was properly configured).
Pinging it was of no use, nor 30/30/30ing or Hard Resetting. I'm a bit directionless and would appreciate some help.
In regards to the LEDs, they are not blinking and (seemingly) randomly switch between which are on whenever I turn on the router.

But we have no clue what build you flashed, upgraded to, etc. Could be that you bricked your router... did you read the Peacock thread?

Thank you for responding to my thread kernel-panic69. I did take a look at the Peacock thread, but perhaps not as thoroughly as I should have.
I downloaded the resources from these links and used them for the conversion process:
-https://download1.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/downloads/others/eko/WRT54GS2V1%20Flashing/VxWorksKiller-GS2V1.bin
-https://download1.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/downloads/betas/2020/11-03-2020-r44715/broadcom/dd-wrt.v24_micro_generic.bin

I tried another reset / leaving it on for a while and it is still in the same state it was before (LEDs illuminate with no reaction / unable to ping / no Wi-Fi access point)

The wiki links you to a specific initial flash file; Otherwise, 44715 shouldn't have bricked it, but who knows.

You will probably have to try TFTP recovery / recover from a bad flash.
