Question about Computers & Internet
If the device is dead in the water as a result of flashing the firmware - then I'd bring it back for either my money back or even exchange. I'd explain that during a firmware update, it became unresponsive. That's it.
I'd flash the replacement to DD-WRT firmware for your particular router again. Make sure you've got the right firmware file for your router's hardware revision too. I'd hold off on flashing to Tomato. (I use DD-WRT to perform wireless bridging w/ two Linky WRT54Gs and haven't had to do a thing to them in 3 years now - I must admit that I'm not familiar with Tomato). There's got to be an issue with the Tomato upgrade procedure you followed, firmware file or a mismatch on hardware revision of the router. I'd want to find out what that problem is before attempting it again. I doubt the store would be very understanding if you showed up with yet another dead router.
I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.
