Help, cannot access router login page after flashing tomato initial file from shibby!

I have a netgear r7000, flashed shibby's file tomato-r7000-initial-126

I was able to initially get back into the login page 192.168.1.1 but couldn't click on anything... It did show openlinksys in the upper right hand corner but there were no links on the left hand column...

It also showed all the wireless settings if I wanted enable them but I didn't. I wanted to flash the shibby's file tomato-r7000-ARM-140-AIO-64k but I haven't gotten the chance to yet.

Decided to reset the router and laptop, but now I cannot access the router login page anymore. I've tried 10.0.0.1, 192.168.1.1, 192.168.0.1, reset button doesn't work anymore.

When I do ipconfig I get 169.254.23.192 subnet 255.255.0.0 and no gateway.

Can shibby or someone please help me? Thanks in advance for your time and help.

So I was able to manually set

So I was able to manually set my laptops IP to 192.168.1.2 and the default gateway to 192.168.1.1 and now I can access the tomato login page but there is no links on the left to upgrade to the next shibby file mentioned above... Can someone help me? Thanks in advance.

Funny story, I wasn't able to

Funny story, I wasn't able to flash to stock using Chrome so I used explorer, when I have tomato initial installed I can't get to router page with the links on the left with explorer, but chrome worked! Funny right? 

 

Now that I'm able to flash the shibby file mentioned above can some help me configure my at&t gigapower modem to work with this tomato firmware? The AT&T modem uses 10.0.0.1 as default. Thanks in advance for your time and help.

"169.254.23.192 subnet 255

"169.254.23.192 subnet 255.255.0.0 and no gateway"

This means that the DHCP has not assigned your network interface (ethernet) a LAN IP address: therefore your PC is not connected to the LAN and can not communicate with the router.

My router is still dropping

My router is still dropping wifi and reconnecting sporadically... Can someone help me configure the router correctly behind the AT&T modem? For example, am I supposed to run bridge mode and have the r7000 have only 10.x.x.x addresses as opposed to 192.168.2.1? Please help my r7000 be stable... I've tried stock, ddwrt, and tomato and I still get random ssid drops no matter what. I assume it's firmware and configurations. Thanks in advance for your time and response!
