Advice appreciated please.
My router suddenly stopped giving me a UK IP - from French location (only the local IP) after 3 years.
I have made no mods.
I want to check the existing startup script, but I cant remember the Command Shell Command which might do this.
Or where to locate it.
I am running Firmware: DD-WRT v3.0-r33772 vpn (11/16/17)
Can anyone advise please? I want to be careful not to erase the existing script.
What could have caused it to suddenly fail?

Thanks egc for quick reply!
I am OK with getting to the Command area, but I seem to remember there is a command to run which brings up the startup script. Maybe I am wrong.
I just want to view the existing startup to try to help me to find why the DDWRT router stopped giving me the required remote IP. I can't find the original setup instructions online
I am just a normal guy, trying to watch UK media from France, not commercial.
I set up DD-WRT v3.0-r33772 vpn (11/16/17) 3 years ago.
Instead of connecting to a UK IP it just gives me a local French IP

Hi egc, thanks again. I misunderstood.
I am using a long term and very supportive VPN provider.
They gave me all the original scripts 3 years ago.
They respond rapidly, and suggested changing the UK Server IP (the original was OK they said) , but this did not help. But now they want me to change every script, which I can do, but I still feel there has to be a simplish reason why the DDWRT suddenly stopped.
I am trying to find this.
This old router gives me 4MB/S.
I use a SmartDNS on a TP-link router for most of my streaming from the UK - it is accepted by Iplayer, All4, NowTV etc.
