Hi all,

I have installed long ago dd-wrt on my WRT310N v1.0 without never having any issues.
Howerver today when I returned from work I discover that the power LED was blinking and of course I had no internet connection.
I tried everything on the peacock thread to try to ping the router but I was unable to do it. Ping just never responds.
I am not really sure if my router got damaged for some low voltage or something like that or if it magically got bricked.

The weird thing is that I have a modem/router in front of it (always had) with IP network 192.168.0.255, this gives IP 192.168.0.10 as the WAN IP for the router linksys, or at least it just to, so my pc is with 192.168.1.2, this worked perfectly for a long time, now with the blinking power light and being unable to ping the router I have no internet configuration with this setup, however if I changed my pc IP to 192.168.0.x I get internet but with my router becoming transparent of course since I can never ping it or acccess its config (neither to re-upload the firmware). Seems like my router died but left my ports bridging so it can work through the ports without any router intelligence. (FYI mac replication was set on before bricking, and NO, a hard reset 30/30/30 did not help either)

Read note 6 of the peacock announcement. You will get a message when you ping. Report that message for each of the three tests.

I always get "request timeout" on each test.
And regarding "ttl=" I don't get any since pings never get reply (I have 100% packet loss each time), not even at early stages of booting the router before or after a hard-reset.

Since I can't reach the router I've tried to do a
arp -s 192.168.1.1 xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
and then do the tftp but that did not worked either, I got a timeout on the tftp, so I couldn't re-install the fw.

Also FYI, I am using Ubuntu 9.10 (karmic), and regarding the lights, power always blinks as long as there is a power cord on the router, rest of the lights work fine, I have no particular blinking when doing a ping to the router itself.

Get a serial cable and erase the nvram and kernel then.

Usually a blinking power light means no firmware, but not always. However, I would check the connection between your computer and your router. Try a new cable and another computer.
