You have to wait for the upgrade to finish. The router should automatically reboot and the time is depending on the firmware being applied.

SOURCE: lost wireless-B light after firmware upgrade

I own the same router. In the back of the router there is a little red button you can push with a pen or the like. This should restore the factory default settings on the router. That should rollback the firmware upgrade and solve your problem. You will need to setup your router again but it should not be a paper weight anymore.

My WRT54GS router is not connecting to the net


I think you don't need to upgrade the firmware.
The router might have lost the connection to the modem.
You can try to reset and reconfigure it. Or you can also try to upload or re-flash the same firmware on your router.

Connect the computer to the modem and make sure that you have active internet through the modem.
Connect the modem to the router and computer to the router.
Open the setup page of the router and reconfigure it manually.

Go to the Belkin support section at their website: http://www.belkin.com/support/

Look for your model router and download the "firmware" upgrade for it. Once you go install the up to date firmware try to give the router a reset. Hopefully doing all that will get the router working again and you connecting to the Internet.

have you tried to reset your wireless router so that the default settings are being used, then try reconfiguring it again for your Internet connection.. then try to connect wireless again ... sounds like your router may have lost its settings which happens for some firmware upgrades.....

Wireless Interferences
Neighboring wireless networks or any appliance that operates on the same frequency as your wireless device (e.g. 2.4 GHz) may cause interference and therefore may affect your wireless connection and signal.
Common sources of interference are:
  • Neighboring wireless networks
  • Microwave ovens
  • 2.4 GHz cordless telephones
  • Bluetooth devices
  • Wireless baby monitors
To solve the problem, change the channel and SSID on your Access Point. Preferred channels to use are 1, 6 and 11 since they’re considered non-overlapping channels.
