I was able to flash the DIR-615 (D-Link) to DD-WRT v24-sp2 (03/19/12) std - build 18777
When I DON'T have Hotspot system enabled, all works fine (have an SSID of dd-wrt)...I am able to connect to the internet and surf with no worries.
Here are the steps I am taking to try and get the system to work.
Enable Hotspot services as instructed in the router.
I have UNCHECKED "Use DNSMasq for DHCP" and "Use DNSMasq for DNS" (This allows me to connect to the LAN ports of the router to access the administration)
I have tried to set the "Local DNS" to 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168 (different occasions)...I've also attempted to load those under "Network Address Server Settings" (DHCP)
None of that works. I am able to briefly connect to the network on Windows 7, but after about 10 seconds I get the dreaded yellow exclamation mark on my network connection.
I did get the e-mail that my router was connected, and it shows as green in my control center, but no PC (I've tried both Windows 7 and Vista) are able to connect to the splash page...it eventually times out to a page can not be displayed.
I'm thinking the error is in my DNS as when I do a ipconfig I see
192.168.254.201 (the address of the server on the LAN...which I am not connected to via ethernet cable)
The DIR-615 is pulling a WAN IP of 192.168.254.75 (which is correct- as it is connected to our LAN behind our watchguard), but I fail to see where the DNS is falling down if I am hard coding it.

DIR-615 has firmware build of 18777, if Hotspot services aren't turned on, router and access are fine.
Hotspot service is enabled, no internet service.
I've tried various DNS servers, putting the DIR-615 in the DMZ, everything I can think of.

Unfortunately there seems to be a glitch with the newer DDwrt firmware. I have tested the same release, with the same exact results you described. I suggest you use 14311, it has proven stable for me.
