    Great day to everyone!

    My current setup is a Linksys WRT54GS with Tomato v1.28, its set as an access point for the meantime. Is it still possible to use the Access Restriction feature of Tomato even on this setup?

    Thanks in advance!

    Can you please clarify what you mean by access point? Is the device the Internet gateway? or does it just bridge wireless client to ethernet?

    The Linksys WRT54GS is set to bridge mode. DHCP is being supplied by the ADSL modem instead.

    Hum.. not sure about that setting but if you could set the modem in "modem mode only" to allow tomato to get a public IP and act as a gateway the answer is yes.

    Well I'm still fiddling with the modem and looking for the options to do just that. But soo far I have not been successful.

    All access restrictions must be on the box that is supplying the DCHP services.

    I had a WDS here for some time and access restriction used on the remote AP do not function.
