I didn't take offence to what you posted but I appreciate that some well knowledgeable people take a dim view of passing on info that is subsequently used illegally.
I didn't mean to sound like I was accusing you of any wrong doing . What is the Model of your router?

NOW I got it WISP was the key word. none of your current hardware supports OpenWrt firmware. Do you want the WISP connection rebroadcast wirelessly or do you want to connect your lan to the WISP?

Sorry been away for a while.
I got dd-WRT v23 working on the Buffalo WBR-G54. In fact it gave me what I wanted straight out of the box, I didn't have to configure anything to connect to the WISP - I was totally amazed.
However, trying to be a smart ar*e, I managed to brick the router by upgrading to v24, which required configuring, then trying to downgrade back to v23. I now have a situation where the cfe file on the router is corrupt and jtagging a new one doesn't work because it always corrupts during the transfer. It would appear that the flash chip has a problem at one or more addresses; I possibly killed it with poor anti-static precautions.
So back to square one unless someone knows how to test/check the flash chip (Micron/ST 29W320DT)

That stinks, We learn from our mistakes though . If you sucessfully Sent Jtag signals to the flash chip you have gone farther then me on recovering a bricked router. I have the serial connections on most of my routers but never did a Jtag recovery. You could try a new Flash chip, and use a product like Chip Quick to replace it.

Sending the data to the flash chip doesn't seem to be the problem. The issue I'm having is that the data on the flash chip (after programming) is fine if I just program the first 4% or so but if I program farther than that it corrupts and this corrution always occurs at the same place (address). I have now replaced the flash chip (well a friend did) but the problem is still the same, so unless I can find someone with jtag programming/ jtag electrical troubleshooting experience I'm probably stuffed. I shan't give up completely though and will continue trying to find the answer as and when the opportunity arises.
My next project is to install dd-WRT onto a d-Link DIR615 then replace its aerials for high gain ones. hee! hee!
