    After a failed firmware update of my device (TD-W8901G) I am getting only the power light on, all other lights are off and i cannot connect to my router. I heard about something like FTP mode, where i can upload the right firmware file to my device and make it get updated, but i dont know how to do it. any help would be appreciated.

    Did you flash in wireless mode, if you did then you most likely damaged the router ?!

    yes, that's what I did - I still can connect to the interface and use it, but the radio is not working.

    If there's an Intel flash inside, the only chance is accessing the serial console and revert back to original firmware.
