OK, so you're not even able to upload the firmware? You should write
more clearly ;) (or I should read more carefully).
1. Power off the device, press the reset button, power on the device,
release the reset button
2. On of the LEDs should blink
3. The device will have the address 192.168.1.1 - can you ping it?
Obviously, you need an address in the same network if your computer is
connected directly with a cable (IP like 192.168.1.2)
4. If you can ping it, you should be able to upload the firmware. I use:
$ tftp 192.168.1.1
Packet tracing on.
tftp> put file_you_want_to_upload
After uploading is complete, wait 2 minutes or so, power off the device,
and power it on again. You should be able to connect it - I don't know
what address will it have if you uploaded OpenWRT; if you uploaded
"Debian kernel" and use USB-stick, it should have an IP address defined
