DG834G V4 Firmware update fail.

Hi all, wonder if anyone can help.
Had an old Virgin DG834G v4 router hanging around so thought I would update the firmware to DG834Gv4_V5.01.17.img.
All seemed to be going well, the webpage said 100% but the power light was still blinking red/green so I left it. After about an hour it was still flashing so I unplugged it and reconnected the power. The power light now comes on (green) but I can't gain access to it.
Not on default IP. Even plugged directly into laptop can't get any default gateway to show.
Any ideas???
