This has to be something really simple..

I updated my firmware on R7000 to r45863 that I use for VPN access. I reset to defaults, and am manually entering my settings, but can not log into the router using Firefox browser after changing 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1

It just times out when I type in the address 192.168.2.1? I am guessing it has something to do with "/24" but am unsure.

I have been reading through the forum and found https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Wireless_Access_Point but this does not help in this case.

I tried adding subnet mask, ipconfig renew|release, etc.

I have never had this problem before when installing new build. Any help is appreciated.

I never use FF but I did the other day when upgrading a router.
It kept defaulting to https which is not enabled in my setup.
Had me perplexed for a bit. Perhaps too simple?

Thanks for the reply.

I am able to login into IP 192.168.1.1 but as soon as I change it to 192.168.2.1 I am no longer able to log into the router. I am so confused. I have tried both FF and Chrome with same results. I will try to install an older build I guess. I am using r45863 right now.

Sir bushant is correct, check http and keep https unchecked in Web GUI --> Administration Management.

https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Wireless_Access_Point#Introduction <-- enable GUI remote access

After saving did you reboot, or release and renew whatever directly connected clients are that use DHCP?

Pale Moon, Waterfox (3rd Gen 78 or Classic 56), Firefox ESR 78 Portable or Firefox ESR Legacy (68/52/45)

If still having problems consider 10 second reset or maybe nvram erase && reboot from Telnet as root.

GUI restore factory defaults is not the same, also "After flashing, reset to" keep selected "Don't reset".

Ever think you need to refresh your computer/phone client IP address so you can access the new IP of the router? Pretty sure you just might still have an IP address in the 192.168.1.x subnet. Sometimes, you have to use that good ol network troubleshooter to reset the interface on Win10, since it's such a piece of sh*t when it comes to this these days. Cool Wink Twisted Evil

That was the ticket! Had to use the troubleshooter there was a problem with the adapter settings. All good now thanks everyone!
