I decided to flash from DD-WRT to Tomato. I went into settings, backed everything up and flashed. Everything looks fine except now I can't access the router gui using 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.69.1 (what I used before). Firmware recovery seems to flash, but I still can't access it. Any ideas ?

If it's anything like other ASUS routers their is software on the CD or that you can download that helps recover firmware when it gets borked.

Sometimes you can use TFTP to recover a "bricked" router. Not sure how to solve the original issue though.
