    Hi ! Hope some kind soul out there can help me out with a problem that Im having with my WRT54G router (v3.1) with DD-WRT firmware.The Router is connected to a DSL modem.
    I'm unable to connect to the router through the Web Browser - whenever I try to connect it shows "Limited Connectivity" and I'm unable to connect to the Internet too (I have to instead connect directly to the DSL Modem bypassing the router).I'm not sure if its Bricked because external LED display seems to be fine - Power LED is not Blinking / WLAN & Internet LED are on as well.

    Now - here is the weird part - if I perform a Hard reset I'm able to access the router through the Browser (IP gets reset to, BUT if I make a change (for example disabling DHCP server or changing IP to and click "Apply Settings" the router hangs & goes back to its earlier state of "Limited Connectivity".Has anyone experienced something similar ? Can someone please suggest what can be done ?
    Thanks in advance :) !

    brad - please try first 30-30-30 reset. Hold the reset button during whole procedure.
    So, while is router on, press reset for 30sec, then remove power cord, after 30sec plug the power back and wait another 30 sec and release reset button. After that, do normal power cycle.
    Any progress?

    BTW - when you change IP of the router to, you wont access it again with IP - just to make sure if you didn't knew it.
