Perhaps some info how exactly did you install the software? And what you think should be expected output of commands run... – bbaja42 Jun 8 '11 at 22:38

I've never run dd-wrt, but if it's linux based, service is probably in /sbin. What happens when you try /sbin/service? If that works, you need to add /sbin to your PATH.

service should just run directly upon login (just tested it myself) - that is, it is your path.

If it isn't in your path, it should be in /opt/usr/sbin

You might want to Optware, the Right Way for the install (your screenshot suggests that you haven't used their install script).
