    I have a WRT54G v6 with DD-WRT v23 sp2. I was able to get the router to work yesterday with the v23 sp2 firmware after many complications with the older firmwares where it would not be able to resolve a WAN IP from my modem. This morning when i woke up, the router is no longer able to resolve a WAN IP and I can not access the internet. Luckily I have a backup router that I am on now to use the net. I have gone through many firmwares including v23 sp3 and v24 tonight to see if it'll fix the problem but was unsuccessful. The settings are all defaulted and have not made any changes. I can't figure out why it does not pick up a WAN IP. My belkin router picks up everything within 30 seconds after a power cycle. please help!

    My service provider is Patriot Media, not sure if that makes any difference...

    try telneting or ssh into the router and do "mtd erase /dev/mtd/3" and reboot all settings will be at factory defaulted

    mm its possible the micro ver does not include mtd, instead you may try cat /dev/zero > /dev/mtd/3 or dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/mtd/3 maybe one of those will work

    i tested my second WRT54G with the same setup and no wan IP as well so I don't think its a router issue..

    well i tried the command and the cat /dev/zero > /dev/mtd/3 works.. but the router still has the same issue. only difference is that the orange light is on now.. but still can not resolve an WAN IP from my ISP.
