Hey guys! As a preface, I'm extremely new to DD-WRT and routers in general. But I'm having some trouble setting up basic remote access (to manage my router from the internet at another location).
 
Here are my settings:

I am plugging my public IP address (from, say, www.whatismyip.com) into the address bar of my remote client followed by the port (8080), so xx.xx.xx.xx:8080. I cannot access my router through a remote client following these steps. The WAN IP listed in DD-WRT is also different from the public IP given to me when I look it up. I hope I'm just terribly far off base..
 
Please set this newb straight, I want to learn!!
Thanks :)

Please do a tracert yahoo.com via a command prompt and post the results for review.

 

By the sounds of it your router maybe behind another router.

 

You should also have https checked and be using https:\\public ip address:8080 for access.  This is more secure than using http.

Hi,

  

  So how did this turn out ?     How to remotely access my dd-wrt router ?

 

 I'm having a similar issue but in addition I'm running behind a openvpn by ipvanish that i setup in my dd-wrt router...

 

thus I have 2 different ip's and (whatismyip.com) reports a different ip than my router...

 

 i did a tracert yahoo.com but am not sure how to copy and paste that here...

 

   I did a right click select all or mark but when I right click again to copy - my selection is unselected...

 

  My other problem is accessing my usb storage remotely as well...and that has already been setup in the router but just can't access remotely..

 

thanks...
