    Hi,
    i've had the same problem.
    Using netstumbler, i found out that my WRTG was working
    on the wireless side.
    Then i use my wireless card with all settings to default (ssid,
    no encryption, no shared key etc.) and ip by dhcp.
    My pc got an ip and could reach the WRTG with http on the
    default 192.168.1.1.
    Then i flashed it back via wireless to the Linksys image and
    everything worked again.

    You have to open the router, going into "failsafe mode" by
    shorten the pin 8(or 14, or 16 - i just take the wire and
    just stripe all the pins from 1 to 23 on my INTEL Flash
    chip), and then reflash the router via TFTP - power off the
    router, DL the original firmware, open commandline, go into
    the folder with the firmware, type "tftp -i PUT 192.168.1.1
    (name of the FW - file)" without brackets... NO ENTER YET!
    Plug in the power, wait approx 1-2 sec and then hit enter!
    Its a bit difficult to find the right timing, but should work!
