I was remotely installing pyLoad on my Asus RT-N16, which is sitting back at home, when I was trying to get the firewall to give me access to the pyLoad web interface.
After dabbling a bit with creating rules, I found myself with several repeated rules and rules that I did not want. At that point, I had enough experience to do it correctly, so I wanted a fresh start … so I flushed the iptables.
Big mistake! It seems as if all the chains and rules were removed (rather than non-defaults only) because I can no longer SSH into my router. I can't even ping it!
Is there any way I can remedy this remotely or are there some simple instructions I can give my folks back home? or will I need to fix this, hands on?
Any help is greatly appreciated!
