my RV042 crashed after i tried to enable SSHd, using it's build-in telnet CLI.
I used the commands shown in the openRG users manual.
Everything went fine (the device responded like "expected", answering my commands with a number an AFAIR OK) until i gave the command to write the settings to NVRAM.
From this moment, the device stopped responding.
Internet connection, LAN connection went offline and every method, known to me, i tried to reset the device (60sec reset, 30/30/30 reset, 30sec reset) failed.
Everytime I turn it's power on, it seems to boot. But after a few seconds the DIAG-LED keeps flashing.
The last thing I tried, was to flash the firmware onto the device using TFTP. But the tool provided by cisco is not able to detect the RV042.
The LED that indicates LAN activity on the port to which my PC is connected flashes while the tool tries to connect to the device.
But after a few moments, the tool shows a message that it can't log in.
Now my question, of course, is:
Is there a possibility to "reanimate" a router which shows this symptoms?
or did I kill it without a chance to get it up and runnning again?
