I need help guys...

I just purchased 2 WNR2000 V2 and connected to my laptop. Then upgraded the factory firmware to the latest firmware from netgear. Wrked fine.

Then I tried dd-wrt and now both of them are not functioning anymore... When I restart I get all lights on a few second then, power lids solid amber, and connected lan is green... lan led blinks when i ping (i mean there is some activity) I cannot browse 192.168.1.1
when i try to ping it with "ping -t -w 2 192.168.1.1" continiosly, I get 2-3 TTL=100 responses when I power on the router, then no response from router... I tried tftp, tftp2, some flash tools (maybe 50 times on each one at different times)... no luck, I cannot load anything...

how can I turn them back to life?

(both unit is behaving the same)
Thanks...

on another command prompt (Win7 Ultimate 32bit)

C:\Windows\System32>tftp -i 192.168.1.1 PUT c:\Users\HainKurt\Downloads\WNR2000\
WNR2000v2-V1.0.0.34_29.0.45.chk

I tried many firmware (3 NA version and 2 World edition) from NetGear and also tried some DD-WRT... I cannot put the image files, and the one inside the router is somehow corrupted... what can I do?

It looks like utility of a USB-to-serial connector mentioned in the links below are the start of recourse to getting this device back from the bricked condition...

30-30-30 is for routers with DD-WRT on it... On my router there is a incomplete or corrupted firmware which does not allow me to do anything... There is no default value since firmware is not operational... On their forums, I asked but nobody is answering for one week...
