I have a WRT350N. I was upgrading the firmware and I made the mistake of doing so on my laptop which was connected to the router wirelessly. During the upgrade the laptop lost connection to the router--obviously--and therefore interrupted the upgrade. Now I'm locked out of the router's setup page and I cannot restart the upgrade. I was told that there is a "back door" to this problem which would allow me to flash the firmware without accessing the router's setup page? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

TFTP might just be that backdoor method. Don't know if/how it is stated on the wrt350N though.

Alternatively "Serial port" or "JTAG" might be the clues you need, though both of these require a special wire and opening the case of the router.

Also as step three option, several forum members offer services to "recover from flashing of firmware gone bad".

Hope this helps a bit.
