It’s possible that the router’s IP address isn’t known in some cases. You will not be allocated an IP address or a default gateway if DHCP is disabled on the router (the router IP address). It’s possible that the default IP isn’t, or that it was modified from the default. It would be difficult to perform firmware updates or make improvements to the router settings without knowing the IP address. If you don’t have the router’s manual, you can look up the router’s factory default settings online:
Change the IP address of your machine to fit the subnet of the default router IP (i.e. the numbers to the left of thein .’s the address) once you know it. Set the computer IP manually to with as the gateway if the router default address is With a continuous ping running in a command window, switch on the router:
If you still don’t get an answer, it’s likely that the IP address has been modified from the normal. To find out what the IP address is, disconnect all other devices from the router and run arp in a command window:

Make your home wifi router a super router with dd-wrt

The measures below are illustrated using a Dlink DIR-810L B1 router with DD-WRT firmware version 3.0-r40559. The user interface of your router is defined by the router version installed on the computer. The user interface of your router can differ slightly depending on the firmware version.
1. In the address bar of your browser, type the router’s default IP address. Go to the Setup page. A prompt will appear asking you to enter your username and password. Click the Sign in button after entering your login credentials. (The default username and password are root and admin.)

[tshoot] dd-wrt repeater & repeater bridge issues

The LAN gateway area in the general setup section has me perplexed. My ISP assigned me a public static IP address (no modem), so my static IP is and my gateway is That’s what the WAN settings are for. My LAN subnet is, and the LAN IP of my router is So, what exactly is a LAN gateway? Is the WAN IP ( correct? I’m not sure why there’s a setting for this because the WAN interface should be the LAN’s gateway by default, and only the WAN should be concerned with a gateway IP.
I’ve just left it blank ( along with the local DNS field (the one under Router IP, not the Static DNS 1/2/3 fields under WAN Settings) for now, and it appears to be working fine, but I’m curious what that’s supposed to be set to.

Dd-wrt tutorial – how to create a separate public guest

On an older Linksys WRT54G v8 wireless router, I’m using DD-WRT. All works fine before I try to do some more precise routing. This does not seem to be related to DD-WRT, and it may be a simple network paradigm that I am overlooking.
I’m sure there are many ways to do this with DD-WRT, but I went with the simplest option and configured the WAN port to receive an IP from the main network’s DHCP server, which is on the network. This element works flawlessly (currently, the IP address is on the WAN port).
However, I am unable to connect to the internet. I can ping the LAN/WLAN subnet at without issue while linked wirelessly, and I can also ping (WAN interface) without issue. Anything beyond that, however, does not respond to ping.
I’m still unable to get anything to function here. What am I overlooking? I’ve even tried Dynamic routing since what I’m doing is essentially a plug-and-play process on every standard network with this configuration, but it’s still not working.
Next, reboot your DD-WRT router. They can be glitchy at times. Do you have the right gateway and subnet settings for your network in your DD-WRT WAN setup? Static WAN settings get a thumbs up. You can also reset DD-WRT to factory settings and then reconnect it in the same manner.
