Try resetting the router, by disconnecting the power for 30 seconds or so.

I'll give that a try, when my neighbor comes home (he knows I'm using his internet, lets me maintain it for him).

Any suggestions? The router is a WRT54G2 v1.5

Alright I got it to give me wireless again (hard reset, still unable to reflash it), still showing all those letters/symbols when I go to 192.168.1.1

Nope. The only way I was ever able to upgrade firmware was via 192.168.1.1, when I try it with the utility 'tftp.exe' it just says 'unable to get a response from server'.

I disabled Windows Firewall and I now get this error with tftp.exe (instead of the last one).
