My browser doesn't default to https if I just input the IP # in the URL bar (type "192.168.0.1" and hit enter), and the shortcut I've been using for a decade for the old DD-WRT router it replaces is http://192.168.0.1/ (just double checked this), has same failure to connect to web gui.
Out of curiosity I typed https://192.168.0.1 and there is a significant difference, that the connection is refused immediately instead of timing out after several seconds like it does when the web gui becomes unresponsive, BUT, right now the web gui is working so...
I'm about 99.999999999% sure it isn't the browser, especially since the first thing I did was try different browsers and systems. I haven't tried over wifi yet and will try that next time, if there is a next time. I hope it's that USB over IP setting since I don't seem to need it anyway.
Maybe I should set up my other newer router to r47900 or thereabouts, config it exactly the same (as much as possible, it's a Mediatek running DD-WRT r44715, but then if (since) it doesn't have this web GUI loss problem on r44715, maybe just use it instead. Better wifi, worse processor. It's always something.

You can type in http all you want if the settings in the browser are set a certain way and it will not matter. I have literally been in and out of the webUI of about a dozen routers here on the bench without issues. I give up on what the problem is other than doing a hard reset and reconfigure from scratch (not using a backup file) and check each new setting as you go until it breaks. _________________ "Life is but a fleeting moment, a vapor that vanishes quickly; All is vanity"

I appreciate the idea to kill a process and restart it but that does not seem sustainable, long term if the problem reoccurs (more often than) daily.
If it doesn't get resolved in the next day or two, I'll just swap in some other router without the issue and be more relaxed about resolving it, doesn't help that it's been a very busy couple days due to Christmas.
It could be as simple as "I'm an idiot who didn't follow directions" when I didn't clear the nvram, won't know if doing that made any difference until it does/doesn't have higher uptime, sometime tomorrow.
