It should have a failsafe ROM on it that will allow you to repair it even 
after a bad flash. unplug it, hold down the power button, and plug it back 
in, wait 10 seconds are release the power button.

You should then be able to visit over ethernet and 
reflash it. If not, you can call linksys, they will give you an RMA even if 
you botched a flash.
