Press the reset button on the router and hold it down for 30 second. Wait for 10 seconds. Now unplug the power to the router and plug it back in. Wait for 1 minute.
The router will be back to the factory default settings. Now run the CD that comes with the router. Install the Cisco connect software and see if that works.
If the Cisco connect software is not working then you can try to etup the router manually without the CD.

The phone is bricked - the bootloader is corrupted.
You will need to take it to a good repair shop for a jtag flashing. Be prepared, it will be costly.

Unbrick htc sensation

Unfortunately I need to contradict "MANPREET's" answer.

A "Bricking" of a phone is caused by a corruption in the custom rom that has been uploaded.

My solution is, if you can still access the rom manager you have installed (clockwork for example), enable the usb mount while connected to your computer and place the stock rom on the phone.

Disconnect usb mode and install the stock rom.

When I power up my router I get 5 lights , nothing for a power light . Should there be a light on for that ? How many lights should be on total ?

It sounds like a bad flash attempt has bricked the unit (made it as useful as a brick)
It can be revived, but you need a copy of the original firmware and a piece of hardware called a JTAG to flash the nvram in the unit and revive it.
If you google linksys jtag ebay you can usually find this hardware for under $10.
Some computer stores will also do this for you for a nominal fee.

Here's a great little video of the process.

Best of luck!

My O2 Atom life got dead bootloader.Beforehand I already mis-upgrade firmware of this O2.Now my atom life become brick.there's is no activity except just blinking LED.I's meaning Bootloader can not up...

I'm not using an Atom Life, so I don't have the flashing files for your device. But I think these links will help you a lot for understanding the process. First link is exactly for your device, I got it translated from russion to english by google, second is from a very good source, xda-developers. And the last one is not Atom Life but it is close so the pictures can help. You'll also need a JTAG cable. I hope this helps. (Because the only other solution than this is replacing your mainboard which will cost you around $300-$400) ( ( (

These things have a tendancy to brick themselves. I have 3 bricked ones right now.
You *can* try holding in the reset button before plugging in the power, and continuing to hold the reset button for a full 30 seconds. This *SHOULD* reset it completely back to factory defaults.

However, if it is in the "continual boot" cycle, as all 3 of mine are, the only way you *may* be able to un-brick it is with hardware modification and a JTAG cable. The modification includes soldering some jumpers, and building a cable (with circuits) to connect to the serial port of the AP.

If it is within the 3 year warranty period, get yourself another one. If it's outside the warranty period, ask yourself if it's worth the trouble for a $60 AP.
