Re: i install wrong firmware
Here's how to get it back to factory settings. Unplug the router, press and hold the reset button for 10 seconds. Plug the router back in, and you will be back to factory settings. Its called a cold boot reset.

It may be the AC jack has been damaged due to pulling on the power cable, wiggle the plug while in the device. Try to reset the device to default settings. After a firmware update the setup CD may not work, go online to reconfigure.
Linksys is known for alot of problems with there firmwares causing tons for problems ..
I use a linksys wireless router my self & had to unplug the router every 2 to 4 days because it would stop any computers to go on the internet. I flashed my firmware and put in a 3rd party firmware that has never caused any problems and it gave me tons of features that your linksys firmware did not.
If you are a advanced user you can flash your firmware and put in non-linksys firmware. Not all routers can accept this firmware but you can search up your router model and version to see. Make sure you read all the how to install and all the warnings .. Keep in mind there is a chance no matter if you followed the instructions exactly that it could destroy your router. But the chance is low.

First reset the router (by holding down the reset switch in the back for 20 seconds), then if after configuring it (acording to manual and ISP information) it's still not working, i suspect the router is defective...
You could also try updating the FIRMWARE from the Linksys web site even if you are at the latest version, some times re-flashing the firmware helps solve bugs that could be in your present firmware
After all of the above you unplug the WAN ethernet cable from the router and the corresponding WAN LED is still ON, ther is defenetely something wrong with the router, return it for exchange.
You can reset the router back to the default settings - Some routers have a RESET button at the back of the router. Depending upon the manufacturer of the router, resetting is done by power up the router and press and hold the reset button until the LEDs flash or press and hold the reset button and then power up the router. If you provide me with the make and model then I can advise you the exact prosedure to reset your router back to the default settings.
Something went wrong during the upgrade of your firmware. If you were upgrading the firmware from Linksys website you need to call their tech support and have them replace it for you. If you were trying to hack it with a 3rd party firmware you probably need to go buy another one and maybe consider using the firmware it comes with. You cannot restore the device because the flash killed the restore function. Your device is cooked. Put some BBQ sauce on it and serve it for dinner.
their is a hole behind the router power on the router and take a paper clip put it in the hole of router press it for 30 seconds you will see resting of router lights now configure it again firstname.lastname@example.org
Reset the router: While the router is powered on press and hold the reset button for 5-10 sec. Release the button and wait until the router boots up (1 min).
If this does not work then you can try this
Try setting it into recovery mode and loading firmware:
Unplug power cable from the router and press the reset button. While holding the reset button plug the power cable in. Continue holding the reset button untill you will see LEDs on the router flashing rapidly.
You should be able to log into the router - you will see a prompt to load firmware. The firmware is available on our WEB site: http://www.dlink.com.au/tech/
Note - suggest you d/l the firmware BEFORE you reset router
