GUI and Telnet/SSH dead, Internet still active

    This has been happening in the last month where I lose the ability to connect to the Web GUI or telnet/ssh into the router. My Internet connection remains active which is good. However, if I don't notice this I can go a few days or weeks where the bandwidth monitor is not collecting stats. I like to keep a close eye on my bandwidth usage.

    I've been running tomato on my Buffalo WHR-HP-G54 for a couple years with no problems so not sure why this would just start surfacing now. Any remedies to fix from a remote location? I won't be at the physical location of the router for many hours. Not sure if that's possible since telnet and gui are not accessible. Sounds like a power cycle is my only fix...which always get things back to running again.

    BTW, I am running Tomato 1.28. I tried reflashing the firmware with no luck. Is there a beta I can try or downgrade the firmware?

    How can I find out what is causing the gui to fail?

    Unfortunately my remote access is already disabled so it's not that. Any other ideas?

    Corrupt/full NVRAM? Try saving settings, do thorough clear and reload using Toastmans method described here.

    me too, but on Linksys WRT54GL

    I'm in same boat within the last month or so. But I am running it on Linksys, WRT54GL. My remote access is also disabled. I will try the methods described by Toastman, and post results. Have you tried them yet?

    Thanks, I'll give that a shot when/if it happens again. So far so good after 2 days.
