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 198.162.1.1. (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?

My mistake. I had it typed wrong. I did use 192.168.1.1.

If want help you should state the several things you have tried to no avail

In addition how are connected to the router? cable, wireless?

Which port on router you connected to LAN, WAN?

The more info you give the more persons will help you, less info less help

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 64.40.221.11, Alternate DNS Server 64.40.221.12. 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.

Ok once you hard reset the device you should be able to ping it at 192.168.1.1 once the router and cable is good.

Can you connect via wireless ? Once you factory reset you should see an open wireless network called dd-wrt or something similar.

EDIT: what lights are on?
Is the router plugged into anything else?

I can see dd-wrt wirelessly, connection 100%.

I lost the no connectivity problem, it now says Connected.

Nothing else is plugged into the router.

The power light is on, WLAN and Internet also.

Cable is new.

Just pinged again, 100% loss.

That Internet light comes on once the Ethernet cable is plugged into the back of the router.

But you told me nothing is plugged in? Once you don't plug anything into the WAN port it should be off

Nothing else is plugged into the router, except the cable. When it's unplugged the Internet light goes off.

Sorry for the confusion. I thought you meant if anything else is plugged in.

Ok so let me get you here

When you plug in a cable into one of the LAN ports the internet light comes on? Does the light come on no matter which LAN port you plug the cable into?

And nothing is plugged into the WAN port?

With the cable unplugged, I was able to access the router wirelessly. I did not know I could do that.

I am using a Hawking with RaLink wireless utility to access WiFi.

With nothing plugged in I get the power and WAN light.

I appreciate your help!

Looks like your WAN port is faulty
