I got into several pages on how to get into fail safe mode in my WR842ND router but without any success. And after a lot of fighting I fnally found a very smart and simple solution that for this specific case works. I put you here just in case you have a similar problem.
I thought that the problem was the redirection, so I started the network normally and then I disconnected all ethernet cables but just the one of the PC that is directly connected to the WR842ND. If you do not have any just connect one directly. This PC had its own valid IP but a changed it manually to the one of the gateway (cheating the WR842ND to think that my PC was the main router). And it worked!! I got access again to the GUI of the WR842ND in that PC, as everything was redirected to it.
All I had to do is to change the settings in the GUI again back to the previous state. And that's all. Easy and quick, but a nightmare if you do not pay attention to this trick.
Hope it helps if you are in a similar condition!!
