Background: I am fairly novice as far as networking goes, but I thought I would give this a run for a friend who owns a small business. I bought a Linksys E2500 and flashed it with the K26 Build. I can fully access the DD-WRT interface at 192.168.1.1 so that all seemed good to go.
He runs a Point of Sale system with an 8-port switch routing to 6 different peripherals in the store (very basically set up). I had some trouble trying to figure out how to get the WiFi connection working but finally figured out that connecting a cable from the switch to the Linksys router enabled the WiFi. I then changed the DD-WRT IP address to 192.168.1.2 as to not interfere with being able to log in to his ISP's local host page. That all functions correctly.
The issue: While following the installation guide at http://www.hotspotsy...ide_dd-wrt.html trying to install Hotspot System into the Services > Hotspot area. It says that "If you see that the time is '00:00:00' (and the current time is not midnight in GMT) it means that the router is not connected to the internet." Mine does not. So I continued along and tried to follow Step A below that:
" If your router is connected to an internal network via another router then maybe you need to modify the IP address (as seen on the internal LAN) of the router . By default it is set to 192.168.1.1 .If both routers are using the same IP, the communication won't work. In this case go to Setup > BASIC Setup > IP Address and Subnet Mask > change the IP address to 192.168.20.1 (leave the rest unchanged). Important: you won't be able to connect to the router until you reboot your computer because the router will have a different IP address."
When I changed the router IP address to 192.168.20.1 I could no longer access it, even after a few restarts. So I 30-30-30 reset the router and started again.
So basically the issue is no Internet connection to the router, which means I can't run the Router setup command to enable Hotspotsystem in the Hotspot menu. I continue to get the /bin/sh error when I run the command because I have no connection apparently. Any thoughts? I can provide more information if needed, as I said I'm pretty new to this. Thanks a bunch!
