I attempted to upgrade the firmware on the WRT54G2 V1 (the newer, slim black model) but it failed. I let the upgrade run for about 10 minutes and it just sat there and link to router disconnected I run ping for 192.168.1.1 but response is "DESTINATION HOST UNREACHABLE". The router is now completely unusable and the ALL LAN ports lights are ON and Internet light is also ON.

What firmware was the router on? What firmware level did you attempt to install?
This router used to stop working intermittently. As per one of the suggestions on a blog I was trying to reinstall the same firmware 188.8.131.52 (I think the last available firmware) again on the router.
As of now whenever I connect power either All Four LAN lights and Internet light lit up or some of the LAN lights lit up. No response to hard reset anymore.

By the time you replied I used dd-wrt guideline and tried VxWorksKiller-G2V1-new.bin on router. I'm not sure how to proceed further. The router symptoms are:
1. NO power on light
2. All LAN ports light ON
3. Internet connection light ON
4. No responce to ping
Is there a hope. I've not tried the last two links sent as of now, will try tonight. One of them expects blinking poweron lights, can't use it.
