Here is the full procedure..
1. power off
2. Press and hold RESET button
4. wait till Power LED flashes (5 seconds or so), release RESET Button
5. Push wl500g-clear-nvram.trx via tftp
6. wait 2 or 3 minutes...I am not sure why...but very critical....
7. remove power
8. Press and hold RESET button
10. wait till Power LED flashes (5 seconds or so), release RESET Button
11. Push wl500g-recover.trx via tftp
12. wait 2 or 3 minutes...I am not sure why...but very critical....
13. remove power
14. Press and hold RESET button
16. wait till Power LED flashes (5 seconds or so), release RESET Button
17. Push ASUS firmware (WL500gpv2_188.8.131.52_TW.trx) via tftp
18. wait 2 or 3 minutes...I am not sure why...but very critical....
19. remove power, replace power
20. watch the LED...once the AIR and Power LED start to blink... You are All GOOD.
