|Okay, I'm search up a ton, and I do mean a ton, of stuff on google, other forums, and these forums to try and find my answer to this problem - and I can't.
Okay, I'll try to break everything down from the title for you.
I have[had] a Linksys WRT54G v6 router.
Well, 2 days ago I upgraded to DD-WRT v24
using the guide in the sticky at
[it's for v5&6]
I used DD-WRT v24 micro generic.
My internet is COMPLETELY working.
And is great - for all of the desktops, wireless laptops and xbox 360's I have.
Way better than Linksys.
My problem is,
I cannot access the control panel, to change some settings - like put security on my wifi.
The first day I install DD-WRT [at like 4 am in the morning]the control panel worked great accessing it by typing in 192.168.1.1 - except for the save issue with firefox - so I started saving in IE.
The second day, I decided to change somethings,
so I went to access it, and now in all the browsers I've tried I get a "Failed To Connect" with 192.168.1.1
Upon reading other delima's with this,
I followed other advice - hard resetting.. 30/30/30 resetting of the router.
Changing my IP address, gateway, subnet mask, and DNS.
I can ping the router at 192.168.1.1
I'm absolutely sure that's the routers IP.
When I first accessed the control panel,
I didn't change much - just looked around at what
it had to offer - it was glorious.
But now, I can't change anything.
I can access the router - 192.168.1.1
But then I don't know what to do with any of the
commands and changing my settings.
I've did arp -a in control panel,
i've looked at ipconfig /all.
I've seen what the routers ip is.
I've tried accessing both hardwired and wirelessly.
Neither seem to work [the first day when it worked, I was doing it hardwired]
I've even tried unplugging the router and leaving it set there for an hour. No luck.
Anyone have any ideas. I know DD-WRT is great,
I can tell that.
I just want my admin control panel to work on this.
Any information and help is much appreciated.
Hopefully we can get this thing figured out.
