I have installed factory-to-ddwrt.bin released on 11/16/2017. After I made a change on D-link DIR-882 WAN port VLAN from vlan2 to vlan1, I am no longer able to ping/ssh/http router's LAN IP address. I cannot login the router now. the only way is to do a hard reset.
1. 30-30-30 hard reset doesn't work.
2. Try to hold reset and power on the router, it gets power LED blinking in orange. I am not sure what it means. I don't know what to do from here.
Since I did not set DHCP on the router, So I have to set a static IP on my laptop and connect to the router via wireless. In the wireless connection, I am able to connect to the router and change the vlan settings back or reset router to default mode. I am okay now.
but I still don't have solution for "hard reset" d-link dir-882. This is a critical issue. without "hard reset", we cannot comfortably use dd-wrt firmware. We don't know when I will stupidly lock our self out. To have a "hard reset" is a must.

As you have posted in the hardware mod. forum, here is the hardware way: Take your soldering iron and remove the flash chip from the router. Mount it to a development board where you can change the content of the chip. Solder back to the router.
An easier way: Post in the Ralink forum. The users there probably know how to reset this router.
