I have a WRT54GL running OpenWRT 10.03.1 ("Backfire"). The router is set in the PPPoE mode, which is connected via Ethernet to the DSL modem.

In order to change my external IP, I need to reset either the modem or the router so the new connection is made with new IP.

Is there a way to use Luci (the web GUI) to do this?

  • Thanks to bbaja42 for asking this question for DD-WRT; I based my question on that one. – Alastair Irvine Apr 13 '14 at 5:29

This can be done through Luci by following these steps:

  1. Log into Luci
  2. Make sure you are in the Status page (the default)
  3. Click on the Processes tab
  4. Find /usr/sbin/pppd in the list and click the [Hang Up] button.
