Hi, I'm a newbie and flashed my linksys wrt45g to the Dec 16th build. Maybe it was a big mistake because, now a wired connection through the lan port doesn't seem to work at all. I changed my connection to 192.168.1.6 (instead o getting an ip address automatically and set gateway to 192.168.1.1) and still unable to connect to the router. If I use the wireless connection and point my browser to 192.168.1.1, it shows the dd wrt page and shows the dec 16 build. Internet connection doesn't work though. It will not save dns masq if i check the box and if I try to reset the router (30 secs), it won't erase my settings. What is wrong and how can I manually open the lan ports to work again. Without them , I cannot flash the router and reverse to another firmware. I'd like to load the dd wrt dec 03 build, but unable to do so now. Thanks all.
