I have searched and tried several things to no avail.
I used to be able to connect with my old laptop, now it's dead. I'm now using my backup PC with XP. I read the Peacock thread when I did the flash to DD-WRT v24-sp2 (08/12/10) std - build 14929. It worked fine.
I did a hard reset because I couldn't ping it using my old IP setup address, and all appears to be well. The Default Gateway when using ipconfig /all is blank. I know the IP address of the Router is 126.96.36.199. (I did use 192.168.1.1, typed it wrong as noted below)
I am unable to connect to the router using my old PC at all. I did a System Scan to see if the Network had any issues,it all came back Passed.
What am I missing?

I'm connected to the LAN port with an Ethernet cable plugged into the PC port.
I searched here on the forum. Did a few searches and could not find a solution to my problem.
Set the Local Area Connection Internet Protocol Properties to 192.168.1.2, Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0, Default Gateway 192.168.1.1, Set the DNS Server to what I found when using the command prompt, Preferred DNS Server 188.8.131.52, Alternate DNS Server 184.108.40.206. Originally had it set to Obtain IP address automatically. As per http://portforward.com/networking/static-xp.htm
My Firewall is OFF, using Internet Explorer to find 192.168.1.1. My wireless connection is off.
The three lights on the router are green, the light on the Ethernet Port on the PC is on.
I get a Limited or no connectivity Yellow exclamation point icon on my Local Area Connection.
I have performed a hard reset 30/30/30, unplug power to router for 10-15 seconds. I did this three times and each time the lights performed normally. I know what it looks liked with bricked. It happened one time and I was able to fix it.
