    So I have TP-Link MR3420 wireless router and Windows 7 and 8 in use.

    First I replaced the router's original firmware with Open-WRT -firmware, but it did not support my 3g usb modem, so I tried DD-WRT, and then the problem begun: the router's web-ui worked only via my phone, but the I could ping the router, so that was not a big problem. Then I searched from internet how to install original firmware back to router via commands, and followed the instructions, it was all going very well, until there was a command something like ''delete linux'' and after that ''reboot''.

    After that I could not connect to the router any way. I have tried pinging , but ''destination host unreachable'' and ''request timed out'' comes always. I have tried hard reset and set the computer's ip to static but no, nothing happens. All lights in the router are just blinking all the time.

    TL;DR: My router has no any kind of firmware in it, and it does not aswer to ping. Is there any way make it working again?

    Sorry for my bad english. Thanks in advance!
