Can't access web GUI via 192.168.1.1

I just flashes OperWrt to a Linksys EA4200v2 router, but I can't access the web GUI at 192.168.1.1.
I flashed the router w/ firmware version "openwrt-kirkwood-linksys-viper-squashfs-factory.bin", using the LinKsys GUI.

I can access the internet with the router's internet plug connected to my provider's (ATT) DSL router, so it appears to have flashed successfully.

I'm not very skilled at linux, so any instruction will have to be pretty basic.

Thanks for your help.

You have installed a snapshot version of OpenWrt, which does not come with LuCI preinstalled.

You have to install LuCI manually, see https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/luci/luci.essentials

If you are on Windows, you could use PuTTy https://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/latest.html to have SSH access to the router and proceed with installing LuCI as detailed in the link given by @tmomas in the post above.
