Hi, I'm new to the intelligent router world. Thanks to this forum I found out about IP bandwidth monitoring for a home network (to find out where all the Gb s are going) and found the version and 'how to' flash Toastman's tomato-WRT54G_WRT54GL_1.28.7633.3-Toastman-VLAN-IPT-ND-VPN.bin to the router. And being a beginner at this was elated to see it working. Amazing. I am pleased to see such dedication professionalism and sharing among forum members. Dabbling, I "logged off" last time when I was trying to see anything obvious about why I could not connect to the internet, and now I cannot connect to the router; the login screen does not come up. In trying to see if my network connection settings are OK I see the MAC address is listed as my own PC. Inputting the MAC address from under the WRT has no effect. The correct LEDs are glowing. I have reset using the press-able label and the rear reset. I can still connect to the previous router when I put the cables back. I read about the GUI and wondered if there was some Toastman software on my PC but cannot find it. I use Lubuntu on a 12 year old AMD, not that I understand much of the OS. I'll also try seeing if I can connect via this Windows XP machine which is n times more powerful but infinitely slower and infuriatingly less reliable. Anybody got any clues? If replies recommend inputting code, can you also show/point to how I get it into the router, that is beyond me yet. Advice would be appreciated.
