DD-WRT now can't access router setup

I finally took the plunge and decided to find out what was so great about DD-WRT. I installed the V23 SP2 package and all went great. But now I cannot access the router's configuration pages, I just get a blank screen.

I can connect no problem and I checked ipconfig and the gateway ip did not change.

Has anyone run into this before and figured out how to solve it?

Yeah, pretty common w/ DD-WRT. Hold the reset button on the back of the router till the power light starts flashing. This is going to hard-reset the router and reset it to firmware defaults. If the power light doesn't stop flashing after... say... 3 mins, cycle power to the router. If it still doesn't stop flashing, might want to look into de-bricking procedures.

Oh yeah, if it does stop flashing and goes solid, but you still can't access the config page, verify that your computer is on DHCP, check that the IP address is on the correct network, the gateway is the address of the router (192.168.1.1) and the DNS is also the router (192.168.1.1). If all of those are correct, see if you can telnet into the router telnet://192.168.1.1 If yes, hopefully you can run the debricking procedure. If no, same thing, lol.

Thanks Drake!.......Worked a charm and I now have full access to all the settings. This should be part of the release notes if it's common.

Any pointers to take advantage of this suposedly superior bios?
