I'm a new DD-WRT user and just tried the build 27506 and 27944 on my WR-841N router, but I have met a strange network device access problem when using Ethernet to connect my Windows 8.1 based laptop to the network. Although I can log on the DD-WRT set up screen (192.168.1.1), but none of my other computers and NAS in my network can be accessed at all.
When I ping the IP address of the devices directly in Cmd prompt, only the router (192.168.1.1) is able to respond while everything else have failed with time out. This problem is gone if I disconnect the Ethernet cable and use Wi-Fi to connect my laptop to the network, all the devices can be accessed properly without any problem. I have reverted the router back to the TP-Link stock firmware and confirmed that the Ethernet problem does not exist, so it is specific to the DD-WRT firmware only.
Does anyone know whether this is a known DD-WRT issue or be able to give me some suggestion to resolve it?

Put commands to your router startup:
swconfig dev eth1 set enable_vlan 1
swconfig dev eth1 set apply
(you might need to replace eth1 with your own interface) _________________ [Atheros] TP-Link TL-WR842ND v2 revision 28366 (VPN, PPTP server, AD blocking, YAMon)
