I recently tried to update the firmware of the linksys wrt54g2 v1.5 router and haven't been able to access the web interface of the router since. I can still access the internet and was able to change the ssid and password through Windows but I don't have any access to ports.
I would try to reflash the backup, but since I can't access the web interface it's impossible. I tried a hard reset using the reset button in back of the router but no luck.
when I type in my router ip (192.168.1.1) I get the normal login window and enter no username followed by admin as the password. This is a sample of what the site brings me to:

so basically it's a bunch of jibberish. Is there anything I can do to fix this like factory firmware reset? or am I just going to have to live with it?
