    I am using Tomato Firmware on my E4200, I have wireless access locked down to only the devises used in the home. I went in to add a Chromecast Dongle and accidentally selected "grant access to this devise only" or something to that affect and now I cannot connect to the router. I cannot use to access settings. I reset using the button in the back but still have the same issue. The Chrome dongle is connected via WI-FI but nothing else can connect. I cannot even connect vie Ethernet... Any Ideas??

    If DHCP is disabled after the reset, you have to set a static ip to your client

    I did not disable DHCP. I set it to allow access by MAC address.

    Fake out the MAC address on a PC to be the same as the Chromecast device...

    Which Tomato version are you using? If it's a Toastman build DHCP is disabled by default, so if you reset the router it will be disabled.

    It's been a while do not not remember the version. However if I cannot access settings what difference does it make? When I type (hardwired) I get nothing. When I search for wireless networks I see wireless1 and wireless 2 unsecured. I can join the wireless one (status on client show connected but no Internet connecton).

    Have tried the first suggestion - set a static IP on the client and use a wired connection? If you can't access the router that way then the router is hosed in unknown ways. Erase NVRAM by whatever means a 4200 supports (30-30-30?) and start over.
