I have a Linksys WRT54G rev 5.0 router running DD-WRT. For the past year or so, it has been bulletproof. Upon my return home from a recent vacation, I began having connectivity issues despite there having been not changes to my hardware configuration. I power cycled the router and was able to connect my devices. However, after a period of unknown time, the router refused to allow new devices to connect (i.e., it failed to provide new IP addresses). Meanwhile, the connected devices remained running flawlessly. I then tried a cold reset. When attempting to diagnose the problem, I have also noted that immediately following a reset, I can talk to the router through its direct IP, however, once the router begins refusing to allow new connections, it also fails to allow me to login to the diagnostics / settings through its own IP. Does anyone have any suggestions? I am a novice when dealing with networking. Does this sound like a firmware / DD-WRT issue, or perhaps is my hardware starting to go bad? Thank you in advance for any assistance you may be able to provide.

Linksys WRT54G rev 5.0

I can't access the DD-WRT "supported router" online database (it is not allowing me to click on anything or press enter to input my information), but I believe I am running:

dd-wrt.v24-12548_NEWD_micro.bin

I've previously read the peacock thread (though admittedly, when I skimmed it again today, I failed to read the BRIGHT RED note to include the above info).

Again, I HAD DD-WRT up and running just fine - for MONTHS. Then I had this hiccup. Any ideas?
