WRT300N started dropping wireless connections. Reboot fixed this for a few days. Now just flashes all lights when powered on and then nothing.

Has this died forever or would be worth looking at flashing it with an alternate firmware e.g. Sveasoft's Talisman or Tomato. I would think it is a hardware problem, howeveer someone may know better.

Has anyone had any experience with Sveasoft's Talisman?

Thanks in advance

I've used Talisman in the past however DD-WRT is now far superior IMHO and is also free.

Given that I cannot no longer see the router on my network I think it is now rubbish!

I wouldn't be able to flash it anymore?

There are ways to recover a bricked router but they're not something the average user should probably attempt.

Bricked?

I thought this term related to where a firmware update had failed and the device is rendered inoperable?

My router has simply slowly died over a period of days I have never updated the firmware as I had no call to. Now all lights just flash, then bye bye. I feel that it is smoked!

Did some investigation into DD-WRT , tomato and Talisman and alas my linksys (ver 2.0) is not supported by any of these at this time.

May have to dig into a recovery if it is an option. Nothing to lose!
