      Bad flash help

      hey guys,

      sorry to jump straight into questions on my first post but i could do with the help.

      i have 2 routers from sky so thankfully it wasn't a huge disaster in that i couldn't connect but when trying to flash one to netgears firmware last night my brother pulled the plug on my mains thinking it was the lamp during the flash

      i now just get the constant alternating lights going on and it doesn't detect the router in the device list when trying to upgrade it again.

      Anything i can do/try for this router or is it just dead?

      Thanks in advance for any help

      if you can, try loading the Sky firmware back on (it should be on your Sky CD)

      If it works then you know you haven't bricked your router

      sorry for posting in the wrong section, will get to know the boards more soon.

      Thanks for the reply jewkesy and i'll give it a go, is it the same process as putting the netgear firmware on?

      weird thing is i can't seem to get my other router showing in the device list when using the recovery tool either so not sure whats going on there.
