A Recovery Ramdisk is a volatile boot loader procedure which contains basic ethernet drivers and instruction to effectively prepare the "bricked" Wireless Access Point with corrupted operating system or firmware for a complete new firmware insertion in a few simple steps. It does not write or store unto the flash memory of the device but instead on the device's RAM and is deleted after a power reboot. When the ramdisk has loaded, this gives you the opporunity to flash a permanent firmware into the device's flash / ROM memory.
You can think of the Wireless Access Point / Router as a mini-computer but without a floppy, CD or USB drive. In any typical computer environment of the older days, data on a hard disk can be subjected to corruption over period of time and when corruption affects the kernel loader section, you computer will probably be just stuck in the Bios area or will prompt "cannot find disk operating disk". For a computer, you would place a startup floppy/USB disk or CD to startup and initiate an operating System installation. In the case of an access point, it does not respond anymore because there is no monitor attached to inform you of the operating system error. Wireless Access Point / Router stores the operating system in a flash memory and does not have a floppy drive or CD drive and the hence the only communicable means is via the Ethernet port. It is very unlikely to get corrupted unless you interrupted an ongoing upgrading process or naughtily tried to install a firmware from unknown sources.
The Recovery ramdisk is usually sent from your computer connected to the Wireless Access Point / Router via an Ethernet cable. You will also need to obtain a freeware called TFTP server to deliver the ramdisk to the Wireless Access Point / Router. You can easily obtain a copy from the link here if you are using a Mircosoft Windows platform and chances are you will be needing only a 32-bit option. Other TFTP for Mac and Linux can be found below:
