Router Web Interface Access Problem

Hello guys. I have a problem with my Rosewill router. I was able to access the web interface and I skipped the setup because I went to upload new firmware (dd-wrt). I was able to access the dd-wrt interface and tweaked the settings a bit. I am not sure if I had to upload two files because I uploaded the webflash image for first installation and did not upload the webflash image after that. Everything worked except I was unable to get internet via LAN on my computer (I could get wi-fi) and it would repeatedly ask for my username and password (even though I gave the correct username and password, it prompts for it around four times before it disappears and I am able to save my settings) so I reset the router and I was unable to access the dd-wrt interface after that. Here I made a mistake by not using root and admin as the username and password, but instead the old username and password that I created so I was unable to login. Therefore, I unplugged the router and plugged back in the default port switch that was provided for the room because I could not put a password for the wifi. After checking more forums and tutorials, I plugged back in the Rosewill router and went to 192.168.1.1 but could not connect. The default gateway got changed so I changed it back to 192.168.1.1 and went back to 192.168.1.1 and it prompted me to login, but neither root - admin nor my old username password combo worked. After some time, I figured out that it was asking for a netgear password which I found and used. It worked and I got into the netgear web interface for a completely different router that is not even close to me. I became so confused because how did I go from Rosewill to DD-WRT to Netgear? I have college internet if that may be part of the problem. Thank you for the help.

Edit: Added in a few more details

Edit 2: I think the netgear thing is the resident hall's router/network/modem

If you're connecting through wireless, then the ability to connect to the admin page through wireless is probably disabled(after the reset). Connecting through cable may be the only way to connect.

Hi, thank you for the reply. I was connected through cable on my desktop and it did not work. I am going to edit my original post to add more details.
