I recently put DD-WRT on my wireless router; however, since I did this I have not been able to access anything out side of my local network. It is not the router. Any ideas how to fix this.

Not sure what you are talking about. Are you trying to manage your router from the WAN side? or are you having trouble connecting to the internet.

Remember, dd-wrt has more security features and makes it harder to gain root access of the router from the WAN side.

If you are hosting a server on the LAN and need it accessible from the WAN then you need to either port forward, or place the server on the DMZ

Okay, how can it not be the router? You said before you changed it, you could access the internet, and then you added DD-WRT and now you can't? You set something up wrong in DD-WRT. The router has to be the problem.
