[ubuntu] DD-WRT can't SSH to router using key

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – good day I've been trying to setup my wireless router, WGR54GL using DD-WRT . I have enabled SSHd and set to no password. I generated a key pair and added them to keyring and see them in my .ssh dir , and set the port to listen on 117... cut and paste the public key into the GUI for DD-WRT and was careful to follow the format on http://www.ddwrt.com/wiki/index.php/Telnet/SSH_and_the_Command_Line#Setting_Up lost for now... thank you (HowTos)
