un-bricking linksys WRT54GS V4

First I've to admit that I was stupid enough yesterday to play with my wireless router trying to expand it's range but it was so annoying that I've wireless router and it's range doesn't cover the house and so I can't use it in my favourite place in summer which the the balcony

so I asked Isam how did he expand his Wireless router to cover garden; he gave me some links and I start digging.

First I tried to install firmware provided by HyperWRT.org but it didn't work, don't ask me why I'm wireless noob and networking idiot in general so I kept digging after another solution that work so I found another firmware provided by Thibor.co.uk and it worked! but suddenly while playing with the new options provided by the new firmware the router got bricked (it's totally new term to me) and when you get your wireless router bricked this means you cannot access it and the only working LED is the power LED



I spend four hours yesterday trying to un-brick it, I've read almost every piece of information about How to un-brick your linksys but none worked or I wasn't shorting the correct pins, honestly I don't know

Today morning Karim tried to help and George didn't let me down but his continues tries but unfortunately it didn't work

finally, it seems that I've to face the fact that my wireless router is corrupted and it may not work again and I should go and buy new one but it would be interesting to find a solution for this case at least I will learn new thing and I'll be testing new firmware on the old one instead of blowing up the new one.


please HELP!

القضاء: لا دليل على أن مقتحمي الكونغرس خططوا لقتل مشرعين

أكد محققو وزارة العدل الأمريكية أنهم لم يجدوا حتى الآن أي دليل على أن أنصار دونالد ترامب الذين هاجموا مبنى الكونغرس الأسبوع الماضي خططوا لاحتجاز مسؤولين منتخبين وقتلهم. يأتي ذلك في الوقت الذي أُوقفت فيه الشرطة، الجمعة، رجلا مسلّحا في واشنطن خلال محاولته عبور إحدى نقاط التفتيش في محيط مبنى الكونغرس حيث ستقام الأربعاء مراسم تنصيب جو بايدن. في ذات الوقت أفادت شبكة NBC الأمريكية، بأن مكتب التحقيقات الفيدرالي يحقق في إمكانية تمويل حكومات أو جماعات اقتحام مبنى الكونغرس. وقالت مصادر للشبكة: "المكتب يحقق في مدفوعات "بيتكوين" بقيمة 500 ألف دولار، يبدو أنه تم تحويلها من قبل مواطن فرنسي، لشخصيات ومجموعات رئيسية يمينية قبل اندلاع أعمال الشغب". وفي جلسة استماع في محكمة أريزونا بشأن اعتقال أحد مثيري الشغب جاكوب تشانسلي الذي يؤمن بنظرية المؤامرة ومن أتباع الحركة اليمينية المتطرفة "كيو-آنون"، تراجع المدعون الفيدراليون عن اتهامات سابقة بأن أنصار ترامب كانوا يخططون "لاحتجاز مسؤولين منتخبين وقتلهم" في هجوم السادس من كانون الثاني/ يناير في واشنطن. ع
Dear Microsoft : It's over. Our relationship just hasn't been working for a while, and now, this is it. I'm leaving you for another Operating system. I know this isn't a good time--you're down with yet another virus. I do hope you feel better soon--really, I do--but I, too, have to move on with my life. Fact is, in the entire time I've known you, you seem to always have a virus or an occasional worm. You should really see a doctor. That said, I just can't continue with this relationship any longer. I know you say you'll fix things, that next time it'll go better--but that's what you said the last time--and the time before that. Each time I believed you. Well, not any longer. You cheater! The truth is there's nothing more you can say to make things better. I know about your secret marriage to patent. You say you two are not seeing each other anymore, but I just don't believe it. You say you can live without patent, and I've heard that
