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!

Rules of war (in a nutshell)

https://youtu.be/HwpzzAefx9M Since the beginning, humans have resorted to violence as a way to settle disagreements. Yet through the ages, people from around the world have tried to limit the brutality of war. It was this humanitarian spirit that led to the First Geneva Convention of 1864, and to the birth of modern International Humanitarian Law. Setting the basic limits on how wars can be fought, these universal laws of war protect those not fighting, as well as those no longer able to. To do this, a distinction must always be made between who or what may be attacked, and who or what must be spared and protected.
