- DD-WRT restore original firmware

I used the dd-wrt.v23_sp2_standard to update my Linksys WRT54GL
firmware but after that I cannot access the web interface of the
router. I can only access the router from telnet in 192.168.1.1. Do
you know how can I repair the router or even restore the original
firmware by using telnet and the shell?
Thank you very much!
Re: DD-WRT restore original firmware
If you can telnet to the router, you should be able to get to the web
interface. First try the reset button. Hold it down for a LONG time.
Something like 30-60 seconds to be sure. Let go. *WAIT*. Then try
connecting with a web browser.
It's also possible that your web browser is doing weird things. Mine
does when it caches old pages and they happen to be a blank page.
Since telnet works, there's nothing wrong with testing the web server
with telnet. Try it:
telnet 192.168.1.1 80
get junk (type this blindly as there's no echo in Windoze telnet)
You should get something like:
HTTP/1.0 400 Bad Request
