-The easiest way to configure your WRT with DD-WRT installed is through the web interface. This provides an experience much like configuring a desktop application. Advanced users may want (or need) to configure their WRT using [[Glossary#SSH|SSH]] or [[Glossary#Telnet|Telnet]]. Based off the old Alchemy firmware the default DD-WRT web interface is one of the most elegantly designed and easily accessed for any firmware around. It supports multiple languages and interfaces. It allows you to configure every single aspect of your router, and its simple GUI, with the ability to enter you own commands and complex scripts with ease.  
-[[Image:Wpa2.JPG|thumb|right|400px|The current standard interface of DD-WRT]] 
-*Open a web browser 
-*In the address bar, type: (Your router's LAN IP address. It may be different than the one list here if you changed it.) 
-*Press Enter or click Go 
-Starting with v23 SP1, the default username is ''root'' and the default password is ''admin''. Some earlier versions of DD-WRT did not require a username. 
-Depending which version of DD-WRT you're running and depending how you've configured it, you may be able to see a status page without entering your username and password, a handy little feature that poses a small security issue for open networks. Intruders probably won't be able to access your network from this status page but they will have more information about your router's configuration than you should be giving out. 
-If you're at a remote location and have access to your router through [[Glossary#SSH|SSH]] or [[Glossary#Telnet|telnet]], but you'd like to enable remote web access, you may use the following command to allow access from one remote IP address: 
-::'''iptables -I INPUT -p tcp -s <remote_location_ip> --dport 80 -j ACCEPT''' 
-This temporary remote web access will be disabled again when the router reboots (unless you turned <i>Remote Administration</i> on from the settings in the web interface or saved this as firewall script under Administration ->Commands). 
-<b>Note:</b> In the final release of v23 you can't prevent wireless access to the web interface without also preventing wired access to it. I don't know if it's a bug or if it's by design. 
-===Regaining Access=== 
-If for some reason you completely lost web access to the router, the web server (HTTP [[Glossary#daemon|daemon]]) may be shut down. To regain access try starting the web server. [[Glossary#SSH|SSH]] or [[Glossary#Telnet|telnet]] into the router and enter the following commands: 
- httpd -h /www 
-To connect through secure HTTP, add the option ''-S'' at the end of the command. See the httpd man pages for more information about that command. 
-You can use this feature to get a more secure router by activating the web interface only when you need to configure it, and then closing the web server once you're done. 
-To shut down the web server, run the command ''kill `cat /tmp/var/run/httpd.pid`'' (note the backquotes) or ''kill `cat /tmp/var/run/httpsd.pid`'' if you ran the web server with the option ''-S'' to get secure HTTP.
