DD-WRT restore original firmware

Hello, 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 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!

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 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 Server: httpd Date: Thu, 21 Jun 2007 09:24:20 GMT Content-Type: text/html Connection: close (mess of HTML code) Connection to host lost.

I get that a lot too. Usually closing all browser windows and/or deleting all offline and online files will do the trick.
