    Hi guys!

    Today I upgraded my WRT54GL v1.1 from SP1 to SP2.
    The procedure completed fine, but the page can't load.

    Actually it loads...but everything I see is a white page with no title or other stuff.

    Anyway the router is working fine, and I can log into it throught telnet...and it shows that it's running the correct SP2 firmware.

    Any idea about what happend? How could I reload the firmware (even the old one) withput the web interface?

    I tried the tftp software by Linksys but it doesn't work.

    Thank you,

    Press the reset button and power off & on.

    Hold the reset button for more than 30 sec.

    May be because you do not have a username and only a password or your username is not root check the sticjy thread from the 12-21-06

    I hope this helps

    Thank you guys for help, but before resetting I want to try something different.

    Anyway I can log in to the router through the telnet interface, and I checked that httpd is running fine.

    Then I had a look to the www folders...where I *think* there should be the web files....but these folders are quite empty...for example I don't have any index html page, or any html page in general.

    If you have the last firmware, could you please check in your WRT where the web files are stored? Can you give me some file names so I can check my www folder?

    I think that the upgrade was successful, but erased the web files: that should be why the router "routes" correctly but the web interface is absolutely non avaiable (white page, no login prompt).

    Thank you!

    Thanks primerap12 [​IMG]
    My case was completely the same as iz4efn describes it - everything seems working OK, but no web interface after flashing to DD-WRT v23 SP2. In telnet session httpd also works but in the www directory no files and my browser of course gives me an empty page.
    But the "reset trick" was crucial and solves the problem. Now WEB interface works just fine [​IMG] ... may be a little strange, but in the www directory, no files again, but anyway WEB interface now works somehow, obviously the html files etc. are in a different location or something else [​IMG]
