I followed the steps to install DD-WRT on my router using the instructions here:
At the last step, after flashing with
12548 Newd_Micro.bin firmware
I noticed I was not able to ping or access the router.
Then I realized I only was able to access through WIFI.
but LAN and WAN ports are not working. I flashed to the latest generic micro Firmware of 6-19-2020, but still LAN and WAN ports did not work. Did a hard Reset and still to no avail. Only able to access through WIFI but LAN and WAN Ports will not work. I read a few post on here to try to solve to no avail. I am about to give up on this router unless a kind soul would help me solve this puzzle. Thanks A lot.

WRT54 uses vlan0 and vlan1, not vlan1 and vlan2. There's a few differences between the E1200 and the WRT54. NOW, that being said, after the VxWorks Killer and initial flash, you could've probably done a reset via webUI and possibly not faced the issue, but there is no guarantee. You may have to see what the nvram variables are and if they are askew:
I executed the commands and now everything looks like your output but still none of the ports work. The only difference I see is in the vlan1ports=4 5 instead of what you have vlan1ports=0 5. See screen shoot .
