Wrong firmware update, unable to reset

Router: WGT624v3
Problem: I was having several issues with the router's wireless dropping internet activity and forcing me to continually reset it, so I went to upgrade the firmware, and looking at the bottom of the router where it states "WGT624 (v2.1)" I assumed it meant that the hardware version was also 2. I uploaded the firmware for the WGT624v2 router and now I am unable to reset the firmware and upload the WGT624v3 firmware. I do not have access to the cd that came with the router, hence I cannot use the firmware recovery ultility. If there is any other way of reseting the firmware or possibly accessing just that ultility it would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Chris

Try TFTP method and if still fails then you are looking to replace the router
