I accidentally disabled my D-link router's web interface. I installed dd-wrt firmware on it. The router's SSH and telnet connections are disabled. I don't want to reset the router.

How can I enable the web interface?

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

Head: What if there's also no access via https? Only hard reset? –  Mokubai Nov 20 '11 at 11:25

SSH and then:

nvram set remote_management=1
nvram set http_wanport=8080 
nvram set httpsd_enable=1 
nvram set https_enable=1
nvram set remote_mgt_https=1 
nvram commit 

Then connect:

He mentioned that SSH is disabled. –  Vick Vega Mar 27 '11 at 15:19
SSH is not enabled.. –  Sanyprashant Mar 27 '11 at 20:53
This is still very helpful if you have ssh enabled, though. –  Ehtesh Choudhury Feb 21 '12 at 4:52
It was very helpful for me, as I did have SSH but locked myself out of the HTTP. –  Luis Antolin Jan 14 at 15:40

Ok..I got it.. I access it over https..and entered username and password.

Keep in mind,there are protocols (http and https) that router used to display its web-based interface.

thank you guys..

Feel free to mark this as accepted. You won't get rep, but it does let the system know it has an accepted answer, and future goolgers will be able to find it faster. –  SysAdmin1138 Mar 27 '11 at 21:02

I recommend following these steps in the future: http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=29181

nvram set httpd_enable=1
nvram set http_enable=1
nvram commit

you can just reboot, or start httpd from the commandline

httpd -p 80

I followed them and got mine to work
