    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.

    I don't follow. You logged off of what? Where? How?

    Can you not open a web browser now and go to the router, which should be at

    Since you are using a Toastman mod, did you turn on DHCP for your LAN? Toastman leaves it off by default. It sounds like perhaps your old DHCP lease expired. Give yourself a static IP in 192.168.1.x, subnet mask Then go to the router web admin, activate DHCP, and set your network card back to getting an address by DHCP.

    There is no Toastman or other router software on your computer.

    Good luck.
