Unable to connect to Router GUI

Hello All,

As the title says, I am no longer able to connect to my router's GUI.
My internet is working fine and I have verified that my router's IP address has not changed. My virtual server is still accessible via the web and can access my desktop via RDP. But I can not for the life of me access the GUI on my router either via LAN or through my WAN IP. I think I may have forwarded port 80 to my virtual server but I can't say for certain. The last time I made changes to the port forwarding settings was a while ago. But I just noticed the issue of not being able to connect to the router today.

I am using a Buffalo Tech router with DD-WRT.

Do you know of any other ways that I can access the GUI on this thing? Maybe something I am missing? Its extremely frustrating because at this point I can't manage my network at all...

Any ideas? I also know that I disabled the ability to TELNET to the router..

I have not set up dd wrt on my router yet (Cisco Linksys EA2700, still a WIP), but if I recall, DD-WRT being basically a small Linux distribution, have you tried ssh to the router? I assume your clients are windows, get a copy of PuTTy (ssh client) and use it to remote to your router. At that point you can check the status of the httpd (assuming it works the same way as Red Hat, you would log in, and run service httpd status... )
