"Kiang" can already, don't "Gey Kiang"

Justin couldn't log in to his wireless router although everyone else in the house could, so i offered to help since i was there for half-dinner and to watch soccer over wine... I attempted to "upgrade" Justin's wireless router and managed to make it so "upgraded" that no one could log in at all...?!
Then i spent the next three soccer matches (Liverpool-ManUnited, Blackburn-Arsenal, ManCity-Chelsea; 6 hours) trying to restore the original firmware (embedded software), to no avail...!

Moral of the story:
"Kiang" can already, don't "Gey Kiang"

Update (16 Sep 08)
I got Justin a brand new wireless router 'cos it was unfair to inconvenience him without Internet access while i sought a remedy to the problem i created... and the new wireless router works like a charm!
Today i went to the router service centre and they promptly solved it for me! The warranty was still valid, so they gave me a replacement set! What's more, the replacement router was a newer version than the faulty one...! SWEET!

Now a slight dilemma... I have a brand new Linksys Wireless-G Router (Model WRT54G2), still nice and unopened in its plastic shrink wrap for sale. It retails for $75 at Sim Lim and i'm hoping to sell it at $70.

Anyone wants/needs a wireless router?
