    i'm trying to configure a wrt54gl v1.1 without actually hooking it up to my dsl modem. got another router there and it works fine and i'm wanting to play around with the wrt some offline, so to speak.

    i've hooked it up via one of the router ports to a laptop and the laptop is served dhcp and gets an address. i can ping the router at, but cannot access the web page at

    i am able to access the web page via wireless, but since i want to change/upgrade firmware i don't want to do it that way.

    am i missing something stupid? what's the trick?
