I am using a Linksys WRT3200ACM router. I initially flashed OpenWRT to one partition, and DDWRT to the alternate partition. I couldn't get things to work, so I reflashed both partitions to Stock Factory Linksys firmware. Now, on a default setup with stock firmware, when my Linksys is disconnected from the modem, router has the default IP address of 10.73.62.38. To access the Admin Web Interface I need to go to 0.73.62.38, instead of 192.168.1.1. I have reflashed factory, rebooted, hard-resetted, multiple times and I still don't get the default Linksys factory firmware IP address of 192.168.1.1. I am concerned that I somehow wrote over my mtd partitions or an extra partiton with a different IP address somehow, and the change was made permanent even after a factory flash. An even bigger concern is that this is a security issue, because my router is doing something that it is not supposed to be doing, and is therefore out of my technical control. Could this be a bootkit or rootkit or something? How is it possible to permanently change the factory default IP address for my linksys router? How can I debug and fix this to start getting the default IP of 192.168.1.1 after a reflash and reboot? Also, How an I be certain that no malicious software did this and has a hold on my router? Please help!
Thanks in advance for any advice and debugging instructions.
