All,
I am new to DD-WRT and need help!
I followed the instructions on the DD-WRT wiki for Actionted MI424WR Rev D. I was able to flash the firmware with RedBoot jungo-image.py and after the 30-30-30 hard reset and connecting to the WAN port I am unable to Telnet to 192.168.1.1 port 9000 and get the "Redboot>" prompt. Any suggestions on what should I do to resolve this?

Interestingly since this flash the power light on the router is amber in color and not a solid green.
I am at step 18 of http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/MI424WR

Thank you!

Sash, thanks for the prompt response. I tried the telnet to the router on port 9000 using the LAN port still no luck. I tried it after a normal reboot of the router and a reboot with the reset button pressed to bypass the RedBoot boot script. I also re-installed the RedBoot loader ans still no luck. I am unable to telnet to the router and now am completely stuck, I cannot proceed with the DD-WRT install or get access to the router through its original interface. Please advise.

Hi Sash,
I installed RedBoot using Python script and instructions on http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/MI424WR and the script executed successfully to indicate that the flash update was complete. The step after the flash update with the new RedBoot requires me to telnet to the router on Port 9000 which is where I am unable to connect and get a RedBoot prompt to install the DD-WRT ROM.
