    I flashed this router with DD-WRT and it was working fine untill I did a 30/30/30 hard reset to change few things. Since then, the power light blinks continuously and no ther lights come on unless I hook up ethernet cable and for that respective port, light comes on. I can not ping 192.168.1.1 or nothing. I tried shortening pin 15-16 etc. and all the other methods except JTAG.

    I am ready to go JTAG path but I have confusion after lots of reading I have done. I deduced from reading that blinking power light is caused by bad NVRAM or bootstrap. Is this true?
    If so where can I find NVRAM to flash the corrupt NVRAM.

    I did an extensive reading before posting. Buying another router is no problem but I feel challenged to unbrick it.
