    This router is a 3rd router in my network and is set with DHCP OFF so it would work with my main router, and it's IP was set to

    Because I'm an idiot, I flashed it with those settings. It still worked like it was supposed to (above settings), but I could not access it via or I followed some hard reset options found on the net, including 30-30-30, and was able to reset DD-WRT to default I accessed the GUI and changed the settings back to above settings as there are a few computers hardwired that rely on these settings to access the internet, and I had to leave for a few days.

    I come back to it and wanted to flash Tomato's firmware to it, but because I'm an even bigger idiot, I flashed it again without setting it back to default. I ran into the same thing. It works like it's supposed to but I can't access it via or I tried all the same hard reset options that I did when hard resetting DD-WRT, but to no avail.

    Any suggestions?

    Here's a suggestion. Buy another used WRT54G somewhere online...

    What a great idea, I found a v2.2 on craigslist for 15 bucks and am now successfully running off of Tomato. Thanks guys, you've been a great help... :cool:

    What a great site... :jester:
