I am trying to get DD-WRT running on some Dell server hardware. It installed fine on the HD and booted fine, but is not responding on 192.168.1.1:80. The console goes by so quickly that I can't see it so I have no idea if there are errors. Anyway to slow it down or review it after the fact?

Thanks.

Increase window scrollback lines or enable session logging. Not sure which terminal emulator, but try PuTTY.

I am not connecting in via telnet. This is on the screen when it boots when I am physically standing in front of it.

Ctrl+S to Stop, Ctrl+Q to Resume, Scroll Lock Key or Pause/Break Key

dmesg | less

Which build are you using and is it known to be working?

Yeah I have tried all of those and more. None seem to do anything.

I downloaded the latest one from 1/15. I am not sure how to find the latest "release" for x86.

there are a few versions of it, I am assuming that you have downloaded the:
01-15-2021-r45454/x86_64

version and a public version (unless you have registered for full version).

Are you able to log in via the command line? Or is this the first boot?

One suggestion that I have is to unplug all connections and then plug your client in on each interface one at a time. Sometimes on x86 dd-wrt does not select the interface that I assumed it would for the WAN vs the LAN
